Swingin' Jazz at CHEZ TED

This is a plugged-in session for advanced players only. We play Swing, Jazz Standards, pop... what is called the great American Song Book:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_American_Songbook

This is not a session for a room full of acoustic guitar strummers. But if you sing well, play sax, trumpet, trombone, drums, keyboards, bass, fiddle, harmonica, oboe, etc... (any instrument really) or can solo on the guitar, we would love for you to bring something new to the party.

The house is equipped with a P.A., microphones, drums, keyboards, guitar and bass amps, and a digital projector hanging from the ceiling to project charts on the wall.

You are encouraged to post PDF lead-sheet of your favorite songs. Adobe Reader projects very sharply on the clubhouse wall. Also attach a video link so we can learn the song.

The number of RSVP's available is limited, so please RSVP only if you will actually attend, and delete your RSVP if you decide not to attend. If it looks full, get on the waiting list and I will try to accommodate you. However, if you RSVP and do not attend without cancelling your RSVP, you may be barred from future events. You are cheating other members who may want to actually attend.

Finally, fill out your biography. Folks who hide their identity and faces will not be invited to my home.

My email address is "[masked]" and phone # is [masked], I will send the address and directions to all R.S.V.P.'s a day or two prior to the event.

    There's one spot left and we need a drummer! Ted, I hope I'm not stepping on your toes by posting this, but if anyone knows one, it would be great if you could talk them into coming. I can play drums a little, but it's been a long time and never in front of an audience!

      Dear Kevin, You can post anything you want. However, I have long since given up begging people to come out and play music. We have almost 400 people signed up for this site. I invite them and if they want to play, fine. If not, that's fine too. We have fun with whoever shows up. This has turned into a holiday sing along, so you are invited to bring any family or girlfriend who want to sing holiday tunes, bring 'em. Ted
