Join the Market Square Jam with host band Katie and the Bubbatones. The Jam is a weekly event that takes place Wednesday evenings from 8-11 pm at the site of the Farmers Market on Draper Road. The season will run from July 11 – September 26.
The Bubbatones are an old-time band based in Blacksburg and Christiansburg, Virginia, using the instrument lineup of fiddle, banjo, guitar, and bass. We enjoy playing for square dances and contradances, parties, picnics, anywhere the fun of old-time music can add to the festivities.

Catering to traditional old time and bluegrass music, the Jam brings musicians together to pick a tune, enjoy some fun times with their friends and family, and take in all that downtown Blacksburg has to offer.
Whether you’re a musician or just looking for some great music on a Wednesday night, come out to the Farmers Market and enjoy a great time. Come listen or bring an instrument and play along to traditional old time tunes.
Something different this year, “host” bands. Every Wednesday night, in addition to the impromptu jam, there will be a host band to welcome musicians and get the party started. If you have a band or a group of musician friends interested in playing, sign on as a host band and get paid $100.
