“ If you're sitting at home thinking it's just a bunch of hacks that show up for the Meetups then you're missing out. Please come out and join us. We really have some incredible talent in this Meetup Group! Many musicians have met and formed bands, duos, trios or added members/joined bands as a result of our MeetUps. We're really just about providing a safe and productive environment for our members to meet other like-minded musicians. Whether you choose to play just for fun or for profit, the chances are very high that you will find someone to enjoy playing music with in the greater Houston area within this group. Don't forget that you get a 20% discount on studio time in my studio as a member of this Meetup Group! ”

“ This is a great place to meet other musicians and hear some great music. When I've brought friends out, they've been very impressed. But don't be intimidated--this is not for the ego trippers. It's a chance to share music and have some fun (a bad day playing music beats a good day at work). ”

“ How bout having a greeter at the door to make sure people know how the event works? I didn't know who to talk to or ask and if Chad hadn't been there, would not have known you George. Name tags would be great for you and Rick at least. ”
