This site exists as a tribute to those who played at and supported live music and jam nights in Rotherham since the turn of the 21st century, and the information is out of date. A special mention goes out to Mel, the sadly missed ex-landlord of the "Little Eff" where everyone had some great nights.

Effin' JAM is dedicated to providing information about JAM nights in Rotherham and the surrounding areas of Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Chesterfield, if you have news please submit to

Charity Fundraiser for Rotherham Hospice at Woodlands Club, Clifton on 29th September.

Brave New Arts, a not for profit organisation dedicated to raising funds for worthy causes and to developing live music for young musicians, is helping to promote an afternoon of music with several bands starting at 2pm and running until 8ish. There will be food available and no doubt we will be running raffles etc for the charity. If there is a better cause to support in Rotherham at the moment, we cant think of one!

Andy Hoult - Jax Danielz - The Storm Trees - Gary Davis - The Tom Kilner Band - Black Toad - View From S62 - The Bob Humphries Inquiry - Steph Little - The Racoons - Reutemann - Mark Williams

There will also be a set from some members of the house band, Musique Acoustique who are always popular and do a regular Sunday set on the first Sunday each month, plus some members of PAPA LEGBAS.
