For a long time I've hoped for a place that people with a passion for music can meet, play, share techniques and experiences, and encourage each other.  I'm not into the bar scenes or honky-tonks, but I love live music, learning from others and teaching others as well. 

What if there was a place where we could share our talents with singing or playing an instrument, enjoy a meal or snacks and meet new friends at the same time? What if you have a friend who won't go to church but will sit around a camp fire and eat Smores? Perfect. That’s the idea. The meeting place can be at a park, someone's house, back yard or downtown!

The location could change depending upon how many are attending. Each person or couple brings a snack, beverage or a dessert -- an instrument (voice is an instrument - spoons are too!)-- and, of course, a song.

My goal is to make this a weekly event where people just show up and play whatever kind of music they enjoy:  Christian, country, BLUEGRASS, Jazz, instrumental, etc., - but good, clean, fun music that even children can enjoy.

We can feature local artists for an "at home concert"- someone who has recorded or are in the process of recording an album.  For these, each person would pay a cover donation for that artist or group.  This scenario is a little more complicated because of equipment/electricity requirements.    Please forward this meetup URL to anyone you know who might be interested in this.
