Effective August 6, 2021, Passim will require all staff, performers, and patrons to show proof of COVID-19 vaccine when they work, attend performances, classes, and workshops at Passim. Patrons will be asked to show their vaccination card or a photo of their vaccination card when they enter the club. Patrons will be asked to show proof each time they visit the club. If a patron is not able to show proof of vaccination they will not be allowed to attend the performance, and their ticket purchase will be refunded.
During COVID, Passim has invested in its live stream capability, and we encourage patrons who have not been vaccinated or others who don’t feel comfortable yet visiting the club to watch the live streams or attend online classes instead. If you purchased a ticket but aren’t feeling well, please stay home and watch the livestream instead.
Effective September 3, 2021, the City of Cambridge has issued an emergency order requiring that face masks or coverings be worn in indoor public places. Patrons and staff must wear masks at Passim unless actively eating or drinking. Artists may remove masks when performing and will maintain a 6-ft distance from the audience. Visit https://www.cambridgema.gov/covid19/facecoverings for full information on the Cambridge mask mandate.
Passim is committed to providing a safe environment for all to work, listen, and enjoy live music. It is our hope that we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then, we appreciate your patience and cooperation.
Hailed as “the new master of the slide guitar” by the Montreux Jazz Festival and “the real thang” by the legendary Bootsy Collins, Jack Broadbent has spent the past few years wowing audiences across the globe with his blend of virtuosic acoustic and slide guitar and blues inspired vocals. His songs can span from a beautiful folk ballad to straight-ahead rock and roll.
Born June 15th, 1988 in rural Lincolnshire, England, Broadbent grew up listening to artists like Radiohead, Robert Johnson, Joni Mitchell, and Davey Graham. These legends influenced Jack’s distinctive songwriting, singing, and style. Jack’s performances exude a warmth, humor, and energy that has electrified audiences worldwide. Broadbent has shared the stage with legendary artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ronnie Wood, Peter Frampton, Tommy Emmanuel, and Tony Joe White. He has headlined a series of international tours including sold out shows across Europe, Australia, Asia, and North America.
Broadbent has four full length albums under his belt. His latest record, Moonshine Blue, was hailed by fans and critics alike for its soulful sound and depth of genre bending songs. Blues Matters said, “Moonshine Blue really shows off Jack’s true power as a singer-songwriter. Sonically, it has a rich, live sound which is a testament to the quality of the production and engineering. It truly is a superb album.” Recently, Broadbent has been working on new music, which should be coming out soon!
