Open Stage Jam Night!

                 Join us for this almost spring Open Stage Jam!   

This is a wonderful time filled with music and so much fun. Come and see what you've been missing!

This is a great venue, there is a small stage, dance floor and best of all a full bar with inexpensive drinks!  The Legion also serves dinner from 5pm to 8pm.  Come early if you're hungry. This is a great venue for vocalists too, complete with musicians to back you up.  Everyone is encouraged to come and bring your friends and "groupies" too!

Notice Please Read!
This Jam has become so popular we are now limiting it to 14 and request that you answer the questions on sign up so we can coordinate instruments and equipment.  You must sign up if you want to Jam and we prefer there wasn't guest jammers, have them join the group and sign up.  Feel free to bring all your friends and relatives to watch and enjoy the show.  If the RSVPs fill up there will be a waitlist!

Jam Details:
No official sign up just get up and play, take a break when you what, enjoy the evening.  If the turn out is large we will need to shift jammers in and out a bit so everyone gets stage time and a break.  Mostly we  pass the front and song selection around and backup in the meantime.  And once in a while it actually comes together!  

We will have two to four mics and at least one instrument channel available(non bass).  Solos and duets can be accommodated on request, but mostly it's full jams.  Electric and acoustic are both welcome. (Please keep the amps on the small side!)  If you can bring a few copies of the songs you want to do and please be prepared to let others know the key and chords.  Try to do jam friendly songs, songs of a few chords, well known and fun for everyone to play.

    I liked it. I think if anyone has a specific negative comment about anyone in particular it is not appropriate to address that publicly on this meetup site, especially naming anyone in particular by name. Musicians and singers of all levels who are learning what works and what does not could be attending. I think its important to think about how members can help each other in a supportive way by not creating a situation where people will be named individually and negatively on this site. I say thank you to the people who planned, brought their own equipment they shared with the group, brought in fellow musicians and friends and are learning and trying improve themselves and helping others do the same at the event.

    Hey, first time for me and I had alot of fun. I was the guy who played several songs during the first break. Charlie had good tight drums. thanks. I didn't get the bass players name but he hung in there pretty good for jamming. I enjoyed playing country electric guitar for the first time. The monitors could be a little louder and on the stage for the drummer and others on stage to hear vocals and harmonize. Thanks Clayton for your organizin'. JB

    A Jam Night or any jam is when everyone gets their turn in orderly way or they can pass to the next person. This is how an organized jam works. It is more difficult to do this on stage but everyone should be aware of the rules of jamming. When anyone gets their turn they should be prepared or pass to the next person. I think this stage jam should also be entertaining for people who are members of the Legion and people there to listen, so players and singers should select their best material. I do not want to blame anyone because it's more difficult on stage. If we play by jamming rules nobody will feel left out.

    Thank you, Sheila, for the generosity letting me playing on your drums. Since I came in late, I don't know who to thank for the great stage setup. I enjoyed a great time jamming with a few of you guys.

    I personally feel there is value with keeping the music going and I do recall hearing it asked several times if "anybody has one" (meaning had a song). Step up! I had a great time and as far as opportunity is concerned, even people that did not sign up for this limited capacity jam got stage time. That may have been a little overly generous. Thanks to Claton for arranging this event and Larry for bringing the PA system.

    Same situation where we can't set up until after the raffle? If so, what time would that be?

      It varies a bit but I'd say it would be 7:30.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
