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 3:00, so the jam will probably start about 20 or 30 minutes after that! We'll play until about 6:00 then load out by 6:30.
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!
