JOIN OUR GROUP IF YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY GUITAR TOO
Even if you don't know how to play an instrument but you want to learn, join our group! We host a variety of meetups including those dedicated to teach people how play guitar, bass, piano and other instruments. We currently offer piano lessons and vocal lessons and vocal coaching as well. We will help get you on your way to becoming a more confident jammer.
Also, you don't have to be a performer to join our group. You can just come and watch us perform at any number of Southbay public parks and coffeeshops. There are an abundance of parks and outdoor beach areas in Southbay Los Angeles and we will take advantage of these free public places to meet. You will see us playing around bonfires, in parks, on piers especially as it warms up in the spring and summer.
As our group develops some of us may perform at local clubs or charity events. Our group will help them get into clubs, and the rest of us get discounts to watch them perform.
