Live house (ライブハウス) is a small live music club concept which originated in Japan. The term is a Japanese coinage (wasei eigo) and is mainly used in China, Japan and South Korea. It most frequently refers to smaller venues, which may double as restaurants or bars, especially featuring rock, jazz, blues, and folk music.

American livehouse - an East Asian concept, tailored to the tastes of a discerning western audience. A new incarnation for a venerable Philadelphia night spot. Jamey's House of Music is a superbly crafted intimate 80 seat venue for live music set in a comfortable, air conditioned, world class listening room, full bar and restaurant. JHOM boasts sound, lighting, video and musical equipment worth over a quarter million dollars - second to none in a venue this size!

Our stunning sound and intimate layout means guests will enjoy live performance in a whole new way. The space in front of the stage has cushioned seating for 56 at long tables, a comfy couch for 3, with a stage-side dining/listening "library" with a video monitor focused on the stage, seating an additional 24. The bar area has seating for an additional 9, and another video monitor. We have been called "the best small venue on the east coast", "a listening room on steroids" and "a music lover's paradise." We frequently video simulcast performances on FB in professional quality HD stereo, where numerous past performances are available for viewing.

JHOM serves a modestly priced, freshly prepared Asian inspired American menu, sinful desserts, and fresh brewed coffees and espressos made with quintuple filtered water. We also boast a dozen ice-cold, fresh brewed, fine ales on tap from Crooked Eye Brewery, and Pennsylvania wines, hard ciders and spirits for your favorite mixed drinks.

As an iconic venue by, and for musicians, we know how to treat professional performing artists with the respect and TLC that they so richly deserve. We are ASCAP, BMI and SESAC licensed. We typically showcase blues, jazz, folk (singer/songwriter), light rock, and occasionally world music genres. We support original music almost exclusively.

We feature ticketed concerts on Friday and Saturday evenings, a free admission Thursday Night Jazz Jam and a free admission Sunday Blues Brunch & Jam hosted by the superb Philly Blues Kings. We are the home venue for the Philly Blues Society. Jamey's is a supporter of the Blues Foundation. We are fully wheelchair accessible, have free WiFi, and boast plenty of free parking nearby.

Hosts Jamey and Suyun Reilly are pleased to be able to share this wonderful space with fellow music lovers, and welcome you warmly. Our goal was to build a live music space with great food, that did it right: professional production values and top equipment coupled with family style hospitality in a first class facility with easy access.

Jamey is a rennaisance man with a long history in the music business as a musician and impressario, in audio design engineering, in graphic arts, teaching yoga, and as a professional Physical Therapist. Above all he is a dreamer and optimist.

The laughing blue Buddha logo, designed by Jamey, represents our belief in the joyful lightness of being, and the conviction that music is humanity's universal language.

Jamey also did the overall design planning for the new JHOM, as well as the acoustical, kitchen and interior design, and audio equipment installation. Paul Mulherin of Crooked Eye Brewery designed and built our beautiful bar.

Chef Suyun founded the popular "Heaven-Heaven" restaurant in southern China, and helped run the family's successful restaurant business there. She was in charge of the kitchen at our previous fine dining restaurant, Patrone, which featured high end Italian and Japanese cuisine. You will now find her in our beautiful new kitchen creating mouth-watering Asian accented new American fare for your delight, from fresh pot stickers and fried rice to delicious, meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. Check out the modestly priced full menu on the menu page. We hope you will return again and again to enjoy stellar eats, adult beverages, superb live music and a really warm and inviting place to meet friendly people.
