Blues Jam Night at Levine (MD Campus)

It is my pleasure to invite you to our annual MD Campus Blues Jam on Saturday, March 2nd, from 6:30-8:30 pm! The jam will be held at the Levine School of Music MD Campus, at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Ln, North Bethesda, MD 20852, in room 309 (on the main level).

As always, the class will be two hours, the first hour focused more on the basics of playing the blues, and the second hour more on jamming. All skill levels and instruments are welcome, though the instruction is skewed heavily towards guitar. Amplifiers are provided for those who wish to play electric guitar or bass, though you are of course welcome and encouraged to bring your own. The event is FREE for currently enrolled Levine students, $5 otherwise.

There will be more of these jams this year, future dates include: 4/27/13 (Sat, VA Campus, 2 pm), and 6/26/13 (NW Campus)

    Will you ever be doing sessions in the future focused on acoustic music styles? I've had oppotunities in the last year to both record as a backup musician and play back up in a couple of bands (singer/songwriter/alt country/folk etc...) but I really want to improve my skills.

      Hi Shelley, it is possible! We have done folk music nights in the past, and songwriter workshops as well. Definitely if we have anything like that upcoming it will appear on this meetup group.

    Sorry to not be able to make it, but would love to participate in the future. i play tenor sax, primarily jazz, but have a life long love of the blues. Will you do this again sooner than next year?

      Gary: Have also been playing around with Joanie Mitchel's "Chelsea Morning," slowing it down and giving it more of a blues feel. Would love your thoughts on it.

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.
