Jim Crozier's Home Page

Lab Sessions

Every Wednesday from 6 to 8pm

The Wednesday Night Lab Session is Jim Crozier's main musical project these days.

Each week Jim has a different guest - the style changes depending on who the guest is:
a hot picker or singer? a songwriter? a band? blues? jazz? bluegrass? Americana?

It has evolved over the years and now presents the guest with the opportunity to try something new:
as a duo with Jim, or invite other musicians to join the session to form a new, or established band - whatever they want as long as it is understood that you can't fire Jim.

History of the Wednesday Night Lab Session - Also, enjoy browsing to the bottom of the page to see all of the great North Florida musicians who have joined in the fun and spent an evening in the musical lab. 

It all happens at: 

Bird's Aphrodisiac Oyster Shack

325 N Bronough Street, Tallahassee, FL

Wednesday - 6pm to 8pm
