It's ordinary people's concert, but we do our best to perform variety & to offer musical sharing experience. The concert is followed by potluck/jam at our beloved friend's home in Berkeley at 6p. And yes, you are all invited to it as well. Here's the link to our concert program: http://east-bay-musical-chairs.blogspot.com/p/program.html

    For those of you signed up late and didn't get my email reminder NO worry!:) Just come to the concert. And if you are staying for potluck/jam after the concert, please bring a potluck dish with you. Then we'll figure things out from there. Cool?

      Hi, I'm one of the late people (sorry about that). I'd like to stay, but I don't think I can make something before the event, so is it all right if I pick up some baked goods instead? How many servings should I plan for? Thanks!

      February 23, 2013

    • erika

      Well, usually we are more in need of main dish, may I suggest pick up something on the way @ Safeway, Whole food or TJ in their hot/ prepared food section on the way to potluck/jam at our friend's home? And that was part of the message I sent to participants. Thanks!

    Hey Lisa, anyone who wants plays at the jam. So bring some music. We often sight read duets, trios, etc., with whoever comes. The 4pm performance is scheduled rather than "open mic", so talk to Erika about next month.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
