Acoustic Music Meetup @Mannion's

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. We usually get through all of the requests, most of our "semi-permanent" songs, plus about 20 more songs out of the over fourteen 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 or added to our shared Dropbox folder, then post your request in the "get the conversation started" section below.

    Yup! Another good one! Chris and Gabe did real good playing bass, and everything sounded great! Thursday is such a welcome event now! There you go, you songwriters; write a song about Thursday night in Somerville!

    Another fun night as usual. I didn't recognize Chris w/o the mohawk, and then I mixed up him and Gabe! Er. So glad they both joined us. Now, we just need a Slobodien named Sandy . . . and where was our songbird Carolyn? Btw, I still have that guitar strap I found last week. Anyone?

    It was great to be able to stay the entire night for once. As always, a fun, energetic evening. I know Chris and Gabe had a good time, and I'm sure they'll be back!

    Props to Chris and Gabe for supplying the bass all night long, and to Dan for the equipment. "Maggie May" rocked!

    A fun evening indeed with some very nice moments. I definitely want to give a shout out to our guest bass players. Our music is not *exactly* their generation, but they both did a fantastic job filling in! Thanks guys!

    I believe it's time for a Neil Young set...if I'm a good boy and promise to stay all night, can I have 4 requests? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease?????
    "Old Man", "Only Love Can Break Your Heart", "Like a Hurricane", and "Heart of Gold".
    Thanks, Dan
    If a fiddler comes who can play "Comes a Time", I would gladly replace any of the other songs to play that instead (or in addition) :)
