Acoustic Jam Pages

Acoustic instrument players and also singers who do not play an instrument are welcome. We welcome all skill levels.

When we meet, we generally gather in a circle and take turns leading songs. Any music is welcome. We've done a lot of folk, folk rock/pop, some old stuff like Slow Poke, some Mexican songs, to name a few.

This meet up is generally held in a private residence in Orangevale, although jams may also be held at other private residence locations in the Sacramento area. In Orangevale, our hosts Gwen and Prune have a nice shaded outdoor patio with lots of chairs, and inside there is room to arrange chairs to make a circle for the jam, and they also have a piano and a stand-up bass available on site.

When we gather to jam in the evening, we start usually around 6pm so we can all meet and greet, and eat (potluck), then we begin playing between 6:30 and 7. Usually we start jamming outdoors in the yard if the weather is nice, and then eventually we move inside.

For the potlucks, hosts usually prepare a main dish to share. Jam attendees can feel free to bring a main or side dish to share, or salad, loaf of bread, bottle of wine, fruit or desert, etc.. Some of the members are vegetarian/vegan.

If you would like to join us, feel free to click on the "Join us" button to apply for membership, or click on the "contact us" button to send an email to one of the organizers who will get back to you to answer your questions.

So far these gatherings have been very enjoyable; good people; fun music.
