     great starter group 

    Jeff R. on Jan 13, 2016.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     This group is special, because at Bodhi's jams everybody plays, unlike many jams and certainly at open mics where you sit around waiting for a turn. Bodhi's workshops and classes are special too due to the limited class sizes, individual attention, his vast knowledge, and his sincere desire to help you. This is a winning meetup group to participate in.

     Good for beginning guitar players and also time allowed for those who are more advanced. Harmonica, fiddle and drums nice addition. Could use banjo, ukelele and mandolin to add texture. Friendly people.

    al N. on Aug 8, 2013.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     I can learn a lot from this group, and my participation spurs me to do the practice I should be doing. I've only been involved for a month, but so far, so good. My goal, besides learning, is to meet 2-3 others with complimentary/similar styles and genre preferences and develop a repertoire. 

    Henry M. K. on Jul 8, 2013.

     How lucky are Portland area musicians and singers to have Bodhi and all he brings!? 

    Carol F. on May 28, 2013.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     Bodhi is an excellent mentor. He made everyone feel welcome and encouraged participation by all. I left wanting to come again and felt great that I just played in a real jam session with a great group of aspiring musicians. 

    James B. on Apr 11, 2013.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     I've now been to at least 4 of these gatherings now and I will go to more. Bodhi does a great job organizing and keeping things focused while allowing folks to enjoy and create, perform in a always positive environment.

     My first meeting was a good experience. Bodhi is a great leader and it is appreciated that he allows everyone a chance to bring in a song. He is very encouraging and helpful. The climate is very supportive. I might get the courage to try the mic. Thank you for you time.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     Lots of talented performers and opportunities to play. 

    Gayle M. on Oct 16, 2011.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     Asher and Bodhi provide leadership to get things going and are very encouraging. When there wasn't sheet music to pass around, Bodhi would figure out the key sequence and write it on a white board for all to see and follow along. Great idea. Step up to the mic, and have a go, no matter what your skill level, everyone is just having fun. There is nothing like playing with others, in a live performance, to learn and techniques that work. 

    munroe on Oct 15, 2011.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     Everyone seemed really cool. Easygoing. Sincerely there for the music. Nice vibe. 

    Beth H. on Oct 2, 2011.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     I'm glad I found this group. I've only gone to two meetups, but I had a good time at both of them. It gives me a chance to meet and play with other musicians and allows me to stretch and grow musically.

    Jory on Mar 6, 2011.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     The name says it all, we're eclectic, relaxed, surprisingly talented, and humble. The jams are fun! 

    Mike M. on Jan 28, 2011.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     I think the coolest thing about these "casual jams" is the diversity of the musicians. One minute you could be listening to some R n B, then perhaps some harp playing, then some Acapella, along with some Creative Soul! 

    Tim R. on Jan 24, 2011.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     A great way for musicians to network, and get inspired, and for musicians of all skill levels to work on their chops!

    JohnnyB on Nov 7, 2010.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     I love watching players come in and polish their songs and improve week by week. I see people teaming up for a song on stage and a year later their band is getting write-ups in music mags. What a hoot! 

    Asher W. on Sep 6, 2010.

     This "casual" makeup of local musicians has turned into a troupe of talented pros and semipros who have evolved and matured over the last couple of years. it is a privilege and pleasure to be playing with such great players. 

    Tom T. on Aug 9, 2010.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     If you want to have some fun and learn a few new things about music and people from all walks of life, head on out. There was an extremely wide variety of musical styles. I suggest that you come out and show us what you're into. I have no doubt that you will be pleasantly surprised by the music and the people you meet. Sure beats the *^&% out of staying home and doing nothing. 

    CRAIG S. on May 31, 2010.

  • Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers)

     I keep meeting wonderful musicians who keep me on my toes, and teach me new and interesting things. I love learning the new tunes, and being exposed to the various influences. I appreciate the variety that we have, and the differences that people bring to the table. Plus, they always let me try out new tunes that I just learned the day before! Thanks to everybody for their contributions! 

    Rob "Bodhi" W. on May 16, 2010.

     Because it's a comfortable place to meet new friends and play music with people who are soooo much better than maybe yourself to learn from and meet new people !! You'll never look back and say,That was a drag !!
