Culture: Jam tomorrow for fast-moving jazz band in the city.

Don't panic if you are in Birmingham city centre tomorrow or Saturday and see a van pull up and a group of men leap out of the back with guitar cases and boxes in hand.

You will not be witness to a gangster-style heist, just the Jam House Buskers on one of their whistlestop Jam in the City gigs.

'We've got one of our bands performing all over the city on a two-day festival of the street, arriving, unloading, performing and then leaving for the next location,' said Jamie McDiamid, manager of the Jewellery Quarter's Jam House.

'We want to perform in as many locations as we can, letting the music reach as many people on the street as possible.'

On October 17 and 18, the Jam House Band will be appearing across the city centre, including Centenary Square, Brindleyplace, New Street and Victoria Square.

Tomorrow they will be performing at BRMB on Broad Street, the BBC Mailbox offices and The Bir-mingham Post and Mail offices on Colmore Row. Band members will be distributing flyers giving dates for upcoming shows at the Jam House, but among them will be one 'golden ticket' VIP invite to the Jam House's Re-Vamp party on October 24.

With four weeks of Jam House parties, the two-day Jam in the City event and the Jam in the Square free gig in St Paul's Square on October 24, the Jam House is celebrating the re-vamped Birmingham in style.
