Jingle our Bells - December Holiday Jam

Here's a list of some stuff we have been playing at the last several jams.

Big Boss Man

Bertha

Ramble on Rose

Sugaree

Cold Rain and Snow

GDTRFB

Beat It On Down the Line

Friend of the Devil

Sugar Magnolia

Brokedown Palace

What we haven't been doing is working on some of the bigger jam vehicle tunes. We should make a spot in the third hour just after the 'Safety Meeting in the Stairwell' jam to bust out an Eyes, Dark Star, ScarletFire, etc.

We should go through these until we devolve into the usual 'call something out clockwise setlist'

I'll sign up for drums. If another drummer signs up I will rent the congas and split the time. If two bass players sign up, we will look into another room.

I will be bringing some Happy Seasonings, holiday cheer in a flask and a fruit cake.

    I had a lot of fun. I enjoyed learning and playing Dead songs I have never heard. What was the tune Bert played from the 90's that only exists on bootlegs?

    Hey Now!
    I am not going to be able to make it today. I apparently double booked myself and I'm not going to try to fight city hall. The room should be around $66. If someone could collect the money and pay the front desk, that would be great.
    Have a great jam and I am looking forward to January!

    I'm looking forward to this. In early October a keyboardist, who knew a lot of GD tunes, played very well. This is a shout out to him - come by if you can.

    I am going to try to make this one, but last time I drove into the city for one of these, I could not find parking because all the garages wanted ridiculous money for a few hours. What are you guys doing for parking for these sessions?

    We are booked in Studio F with Drums, Bass and 3 Guitars. I went ahead and booked Room D for the same time slot.

    I'm going to add another room for Saturday.. We'll have until Thursday midnight to fill or cancel it. I would say this room is about full now but we could still sub in and out.
