Meet up to plan the future/direction of this group

With the group about to disappear at the end of last year through lack of sponsorship, I decided that it was worth a try saving it or at least the links between the musician members. On Monday I'd like to gather ideas on music, venues, ideas, direction, anything that we need to get going again. I have not been to a meet before and do not have experience of running a group like this so am after all the help I can get. If you can make it then great, if you can't make it then if you could send me your ideas and an indication or whether your are still interested in being part of the group I should be grateful.

    Was good to see you too Simon, a pity more people could not make it. Hopefully we'll have a larger group and more ideas at the next one.

    Please forgive me but I wont be able to get to the venue this evening. My father has dementia and I am currently with him so I hope you understand

      Of course, Richard. Sorry to hear about you father and sorry you can't join us, hopefully we can meet next time. If there is something you'd like to include in the discussion, ideas, direction, etc. (and if you get a chance) do please drop me a line.

    Hi, I got a brand new capo for Xmas and I'm dying to try it out.

    Hi all,
    Have updated the meeting to Monday 13th so that more can attend following the Christmas break. Hope this suits.

    Steve - thanks for the invitation to hook up with the open mike sessions, etc. Sounds like a good idea once we get going. I will follow up directly with you, but cannot make tomorrow. Will be in touch. Hope you can join us on 13th.

    FYI there are also a few young singer/songwriters playing at The Beer emporium tomorrow night too which may be worth coming along to see also....................again hope some of you can make it along to chat just ask for Steve

    Hi and Happy New Year to you all. I am a director at The Beer Emporium on King St in Bristol. I am a mediocre guitarist but enjoy playing and singing. Having read the thread I would like to propose that those of you able to attend come along to the bar tomorrow Saturday 4th January at 6pm for an informal meeting to discuss development of the club and propose possible dates for meet ups. I am more than willing for the group to be associated with our Open Mic & Jam Sessions which run on Tuesday evenings from around 9pm. There may also be scope for less formal meets on Sundays which may also be firmed up after an initial meet to discuss the merits of such an event. I realise this is short notice but would appreciate if you could reply by return and also call me at[masked] to confirm. I look forward to hearing from you all, rock on.

  • Simon H.

    Thanks very much for the responses... Monday 6th is looking like a problem for most. Can you suggest dates that would be better. Perhaps next Tuesday or Weds (7th,8th) or Monday 13th or Tuesday 14th. Just thinking it is easier to have a conversation in a pub early in the week. Let me know what works and I'll shift it.

    Nice one Simon! I'd love to join but am away til the 10th :(. Glad to see the group going again.

    January 2, 2014

  • Dan

    Sorry, can't make Monday either

    January 2, 2014

  • Ian D.

    I like the idea Simon but I can't make Monday.

    Personally I'd like to see the group being a way of like-minded musicians getting in touch with each other, most likely over a pint and a chat rather than a full-on jam session. That might just be me though.
