Friday Night Blues Jam

About Us

Welcome to the Official Friday Night Blues Jam site! Your home for everything you need to know about the Friday Night Blues Jam & where you can catch Mike Sedgewick & Robin Hutchison’s shows!

The Friday Night Blues Jam's early beginnings, began at the former Peppery Cat back in 2016. We gradually built up a following there and in early 2017, Mike & Robin moved to a new venue down the street, The Salty Dog. Ever since early spring, 2017, they have been building even more of a fan base & musician base, and continue to attract some of the best musicians in the GTA. On March 1st, 2020, the Salty Dog sadly closed its doors, however Mike & Robin have found a new home, in the Black Swan Tavern on the Danforth! Check out Our News Page for more information!

Mike Sedgewick is a talented, high energy and sought after guitar player throughout the city. Mike burst onto the scene in late Fall of 2015. From there, he has gained much attention through the city & beyond, with his blazing guitar solos, signature sound & all around amazing talent. You can find Mike at various venues around the city, including every 3rd Sunday of the month, hosting the Mike Sedgewick Blues Review, as part of the Linsmore Tavern's Sunday Blues Series. He can also be found at Grossmans on the 1st Thursday of every month. Come and check him out!
