In our free jams, all musicians, musical styles, instruments and voices are welcome! Together, we crawl into the magic of the moment and let ourselves be carried away by the music and structure that emerges. No existing songs or standards are requested here, but we get to work with the spontaneous inspiration of all jammers. Our jams are primarily intended as a sanctuary for singers and musicians who feel like playing and creating together.

This year we want to kick off our Leuven summer week with a summer jam of epic proportions ... And for that we have invited an extra musical engine!

Founded by frontman and trumpeter Luca Simonelli, Circo Simonelli is all about high energy, soul, disco and funk. An explosion of energy and enthusiasm and thus ideal to get a jam going! After the opening, his band continues to support the open jam, a perfect opportunity for any musician who feels like partying.

Little or no experience? No worries! The jams are also led by our regular music staff member Reindert and his trusty saxophone. Those who need it will get a little push from him. And before you know it, you will be part of the whole thing!

Registration is not required, but very much appreciated! Any doubts or questions? Send an email to reindert@wisper.be


WISPER provides a a PA system, a drum kit, two stage pianos, several percussion instruments and vocal microphones.

Guitarists who bring their own amplifier are greatly appreciated. If necessary, we can plug you into the mixing board.

If there are many musicians, we take turns for each song. Please indicate spontaneously if you want to play, and give room to each other!

Level of experience

Level X: for all singers and musicians, experience doesn't matter!
