Santa Barbara Music Jam is a website for local musicians to find playing partners, form a band, trade songs, or just feel the synergy that comes from playing with other musicians.   All levels, all instruments, all genres are welcome.  Singers, bass players, drummers, and pros who enjoy mentoring are especially welcome.   Meetups will be designed for the members.  Here's to hoping that Santa Barbara Music Jam becomes a self-supporting social music network.
