SMPTE NY Section Spring Jam 2014

On Thursday 19 June 2014, the first of what will hopefully be many jam sessions featuring SMPTE members will take place at Smash Studios in NYC. The jam presents a unique opportunity for members to dust off that instrument in the closet or attic and get back in touch with their 'inner musician'. And for those members who are non-players, it will be a great evening to socialize and to check out some great music performed by your colleagues. 

Limit of 20 players, with additional limited spectator seating for 10-15 people. Details:

    The main thrust of this initiative is to make a little music and have some fun. So let's do so! See you all tomorrow night!

    Cheers,

    - FOOD: Our plan is to order in pizza and sodas. And as an alternate, maybe a hero from Manganaro's Hero Boy around the corner. If someone has a specific request in terms of food, please let me know ahead of time and we will see if we can accommodate. - COIN: I will be collecting the $$ for studio rental and refreshments; cash only please! If you have to leave early, please see me before you split.

    - TUNES: While we don't have a 'jam canon' just yet, we are working on developing one. If you've got songlists of tunes you know/like to play, bring 'em! This website might be considered a rough starting point for ajam canon:

    - FORMAT: We will be utilizing standard jam format: 3 tunes and then a change-up of players so that everyone who wants to play gets a crack at it. I will be acting as 'jammaster' coordinating the sets. Standard jam etiquette applies.

    Folks:

    Less than 24 hours to go to the inaugural SMPTE jam at Smash Studios in Manhattan. We have close to a full slate of players, so it promises to me a great night. Some quick notes about tomorrows proceedings...
