Monthly Jam at Shaker and Vine

Every month, we host a group-oriented jam session at Shaker and Vine (formerly Vino Vixens). A great venue, Shakers allows us access to their beautiful, cozy back room where we can jam away the afternoon in comfort.

Doors open (and gear starts loading in) at 2:00, so the jam will probably start about 20 or 30 minutes after that!

 

This jam session is open to the everybody of all skill levels, all instruments, and all styles.  Rock, country, blues, pop, whatever you want -- however, please recognize that Vino Vixens is a licensed establishment, and as such participants must be at least 21 years old.

 

This is an acoustic-friendly jam session -- but we do recognize that with a large number of acoustic musicians all jamming together, lead players and singers need a little help.  So bring your small amp and turn up during your lead, but then remember to turn down to the same volume level as your acoustic friend sitting next to you.

 

We'll be organizing this as a "circle jam", where we all sit around in a general circle, and as each person's turn comes up, they have he option to nominate a song for everybody to play along with.  If you don't want to sing, we'll find somebody to sing for you (provided we have the words!).  Recognize that all of these songs usually require a little coordination assistance, and as such choosing a simple pattern-style song, and bringing along a cheat-sheet with chords (and words!) is highly recommended!

 

We hope to see you there!

    Excellent Jam. Well managed session. The group was very supportive of newer and less experienced members. There were some excellent leads and performances. Lots of fun.

    This was our second time at the monthly jam. We were warmly greeted and encouraged in all of our musical endeavors. This is a very welcoming and supportive group! We're delighted to be adding the monthly gathering to our calendar from now on. What a joy to make music with all of you! :oD

    Last month was my first time attending and I have one question as a drummer. Is the drumset open for sharing that I could play on for a song or two?

      Hey Matthew,

      I always say that the people who do the manual labour get to make the rules. For the jams, I tend to have too much gear to actually be responsible for my own drumset.

      I loan out my drumset to another drummer who goes through the trouble of breaking it down, transporting it, setting it up, etc. (and then reverses it at the end of the day). As such, for that day, I don't think of it as "my drumset" when that happens. I've loaned it out, so I let them worry about it.

      That being said, I *KNOW* that they're open to sharing. Eager to take breaks, in fact! Simply approach whomsoever is the drummer of that day and talk to them! ;-)

      You can all arrange to switch off, give each other breaks, help each other out, etc. Arrange a set number, or play it by ear, or what-have-you.

      I'm sure it will all work out just fine.
