     If only I could spend more time with more of you at the jams! I usually hang in one spot because I have a bunch of stuff to drag around with me. This time I was very lucky to spend a lot of time playing with Richard Francis. Turns out Rich is an incredible singer with a very cool repertoire. I really like small circles where we get to play on one an others licks and vocals. Truth is I'm just a musical junkie. I want to play and sing from the moment I get there until I have to leave. My travel distances makes it so I have to leave early and arrive late, so that is why I often end up in a back room or garage. I hate to punch in and disrupt the vibe at a circle that is already jamming. I love it when different people pop in to join me, please don't feel inhibited. I am constantly amazed at the talent in our group!

     It's goin' on a few years since I've been hanging around with the good folks here at Acoustic Jam - Orangevale. I still haven't gotten to know everyone because there are so many of us here but it's so laid back, there's no pressure. And everyone is so friendly. Some are gregarious, some are shy, and some are in between but I've never felt like I got an attitude directed at me here at a jam. So...Just pack yer fixin's, suit up, show up, tune-up and jump in if you want.

     About what I expected, there are talented musicians and beginners that can learn from them. A great source of musical experience.

    on Aug 12, 2011.

  • Acoustic Jam

     Acoustic Jam is an excellent place to play and share music with others. 

    on Jun 26, 2011.

  • Acoustic Jam

     Acoustic Jam is a great group to learn new songs among sincere and trustworthy people. There is no pressure for a beginner to "perform". Doyle is correct in that "showing off" is discouraged. And you can wander between the smaller Jams to find your style of music. 

    on Jun 13, 2011.

  • Acoustic Jam

     super fun! 

    on Jun 12, 2011.

  • Acoustic Jam

     Always a happy circle of people who LOVE music, and that always makes the music sing out beautifully. I like how supportive everyone is of everyone else, musically. It is what music in the best spirit is supposed to embody. 

    on Jun 1, 2011.

  • Acoustic Jam

     Of course, this was the first of hopefully more "meetups" to come. It was a very open, unrushed atmosphere with a lot of musical sharing and enjoyment. There were no "stage hogs" or other behavioral attitudes that sometimes can occur at functions like this. There was shared food and a relaxed sense of musical sharing. Bottom line - this was a success and I can think of nothing that would have made this evening any better. 

    on Jan 23, 2011.

  • Acoustic Jam

     This is a stellar group of friends and musicians. There are all skill levels and everyone contributes. A wide variety of instruments are included and music styles have ranged from folk to bluegrass to country/western, '30s swing to Gypsy to Latin to classic rock. One can hardly wait to see what's next!

  • Acoustic Jam

     Wonderful idea to get players together! 

    on Oct 4, 2010.

  • Acoustic Jam

     Others might consider joining this group if they want to play music with other people instead of just playing music in the same room as other people. 

    on Aug 19, 2010.

  • Acoustic Jam

     Gwen and Prune are gracious hosts and accomplished musicians/singers who do a great job of welcoming all levels of musical ability and diverse musical expressions to this circle. 

    on Aug 6, 2010.

  • Acoustic Jam

     Had a great time. Only regret that my playing wasn't quite "on" that day.
