Acoustic Music Meetup @Mannion's

The fun continues!!!

Join us for another acoustic jam at Mannion's. This is an inclusive jam, not an open mic. Members are encouraged to sing and play along the entire night.

We will be meeting on the ground floor in the side room. Look for the folks with the musical instruments.

Mannion's serves delicious food and has a nice selection of beers. Most of us take a dinner break around 7:30. After dinner, we play until they kick us out--usually around 11. Please bring cash to pay for your dinner and drinks.

There is an evolving setlist for this meetup--see the link in the left-hand column of our site. We usually get through all of the requests, most of our "semi-permantant" songs, plus about 20 more songs out of the over five hundred or so songs in our files.

If you would like to add a song to the setlist, make sure it is posted to our site in the "Files" section (see the link in the left-hand column of the site), then post your request in the "get the conversation started" section below.

    Michael on flute was amazing. Nights in White Satin will never be the same. He even got in a little Bouree by Jethro Tull. Nice spice to the NJAMP stew.

    I had another really good time. That's what happens when you mix together great music and good people. Can't wait till next week and do it all over again...

    Whoa, what a nite! Alan's right; it was just one of them nights! Although we missed a lot of our "usual suspects), we wound up with a great mix, and the atmosphere was great! I didn't officially meet our flute player, but man, he rocked! As did everyone else! Yes, Ed, what did happen when that Beth rolled in? (Same thing happens when Ed walks in!("C'mon Now!"). Some of the vocals were just wonderful, and our token "Moldy old folksong", "Red Is The Rose", was beautiful! I got there early, and sang a couple of songs to the empty room; there is some kind of acoustic magic in that room, and boy was it working last night!

    Another one of the special evenings. I don't know what causes them, but everyone was in fine form and very enthusiastic.

    Great night! Everyone seemed to be relaxed and just having fun! Lots of energy in the room. A man from the bar came in, and as he was leaving he said, " I came in for a drink, and found a piece of heaven in this room." I thought Michael's flute playing the second half of the night was great!!
