Party Profile: Nashville Geek JAM!

The Nashville Geek Jam is a group of local developers and IT folk who get together about once a month to rock out. Their influences run from Hendrix to the Cars to Tom Petty to pretty much anything they hear and like. Recently the band has started to become the house band of choice for Nashville IT gatherings such as Holland Square Group’s Nerds of Rock, Nashville BarCamp, and the upcoming PyTennessee conference. After a rocking first set, any and all comers are invited to sit in and play with the band. Check us out on Facebook at

Hey! The PyTennessee Geek Jam will be an acoustic show, so leave the Marshall stack at home and bring your Martin. See you there!
