Hey everyone.  Sorry about the late notice.

Tonight, at the Ford Theatre in Hollywood, BASC is sponsoring a Band Scramble and general jam.  It's a lot of fun and a chance to stand on the big stage in a big house.

A "band scramble" basically, is this:  Everyone writes their name and instrument on a piece of paper and puts it in a hat.  They draw out instruments and assemble "bands" kinda randomly.  Each band gets oh...30 minutes or any hour or so to meet and greet, and rehearse.  You think up a band name, and maybe find two or three songs that everyone knows.  You run through them a couple times and then you actually get to stand in front of people and play!

Really, it's great fun and it's free.  If you have a friend with a camera they can get a pic of you ON STAGE at the FORD! 

Of course, participation in the band scramble is not required.  You can just jam with other jammers, or simply sit and enjoy the Bluegrass vibe and some good people and music.
