A NANANGO musician is bringing the South Burnett music scene together every month.

Tony Cisneros has been giving local musicians a platform to perform at his monthly jam sessions since late 2010.

The jam sessions are held on the fourth Sunday of every month at the Royal Hotel Yarraman.

Mr Cisneros has been performing for decades and said it was great to see a platform for musicians of all ages and skill levels.

"It is a great little platform for people to get some experience playing to people," he said.

"The atmosphere is really relaxed and I always stress that all ages are welcome and all styles are welcome.

"Everyone deserves a chance and you never know where it can lead to."

The sessions attract musicians from as far away as Dalby, Proston and even the Sunshine Coast. Mr Cisneros said the jam sessions were always a unique experience.

"We have people playing all different styles including Celtic style, jazz, country, blues or rock and there are some really talented musicians," he said.

"No session is ever the same so it keeps things fresh for everybody."

If you're interested in performing, show up between 2pm and 6pm on the fourth Sunday of any month.

Mr Cisneros also recommended the Nanango jam sessions on the second Sunday of each month.
