The Century Room at Hotel Congress has been spreading its melodies downtown for the past few months and is now rearin' up for a fun spring and summer jam session.

The intimate jazz venue features a range of showtimes throughout the weekend, including a Friday night concert series, late-night gigs on Thursday and Saturday, and a Sunday night jam session.
