Chicago Guitarists Open Mic/Social/Guitar Jam

Hey you all, by popular demand...we are having another Open Mic/Guitar Jam/Social but this time at least for a month we're at Third Coast Comics.

We did a recent song writers club here and it worked out fairly well although for Open Mic night, I can see it getting a bit tight so travel light :)

 

BYO...food, snacks, and favorite drink.

 

The format is very relaxed.  We are open to ultra beginners.  Never hesitate to talk "music" with any of us.  Getting out of our comfort zone is the evening's objective.

The sign up list will be available, and after everyone gets a chance on stage we'll open the event up for Jamming and such.

I know at the Yacht Club we tend to go past midnight for a couple of hours but Third Coast Comics is a retail store in a residential building soooo we might have to be completely done by 1:00 am

 

Note: I don't have a PA or anything so if you have an amp and need it you should bring it.

    Bummer I just can't make it tonight! With crazy weather and my body giving me weird shocking sensations it just wouldn't be art for me to go that far alone! If anyone lives near Orland park let me know! We can take my car! I just don't like going that far without help! God it sucks having MS I want to go but I also have to be smart and safe about things! Totally wish I could join you all tonight! Gonna have to start a southwest side jam!

    Big thanks to Lori & the two Terrys (hmm...sounds like a band name) for pulling the meet together at Third Coast Comics. The space and the group that attended were perfect together! Keep up the great work!

    Well...I tried, but could not make it.
    My basement was ankle deep in water...aaarghhh.
    The great thing is that my hockey equipment was spared, not so lucky with the washer, dryer, hot water boiler...and lots of other items.
    Anyway. Be careful out there...and I'll see you all next time.
    Cheers!
