Started in September 2009 by Frank Sofia, The Downingtown Area Acoustic Jam Group is a monthly acoustical instrument session for musicians, singers and songwriters. In the spring of 2016, Frank found his recent career change taking much more of his time so the Jam is currently hosted by Brian Huff who maintains the Meetup membership and web pages, and James Supplee, a Downingtown Friends Meetinghouse member, guitarist and flutist. Don MacNeil is also a seminal member of the group, frequently bringing his multi-instrumental and professional leadership talents to the sessions. Frank continues to participate as a co-organizer and member, albeit not as often as he would like.
The spirit we've always attempted to reflect is to check one's ego at the door and simply have fun jamming along to relatively easy songs with like-minded musicians. And equally important, to treat everyone with respect and with the understanding that our jam is a social event too! This formula has worked so far and we expect it will continue to be our focus gong forward.
Hope you can join us!
