Jam Session at Toi Poneke Arts Center (Te Aro)

NOTE DATE CHANGE TO DECEMBER 12TH!

Probably our last jam session at Toi Poneke for 2013!

Last time we had 4 guitars, banjo, harmonica (just briefly), mandolin, flute, drums and Teresa's great voice. Most of us pitched in with some singing during the evening. The more instruments the better!

These are no stress events with no expectations of a certain ability other than you are reasonably confident in playing a few songs of your choice. You can do a lot with two chords when you get so many instruments joining in! 

Most of the stuff we have a go at is well known pop or rock from the 60's onwards, with bits of country, blues, and Kiwiana thrown in for good measure.

We'll use the community room again, which is a nice big space with plenty of room and decent acoustics. The room costs about $30 to hire, so please bring along a couple of dollars to help offset the cost.

Hope to see you there

p.s if you're keen to attend but can't do Thursdays, leave a comment on the event and we can try and schedule some for alternate days/weekends.

    Hey, great to see this full again and thanks to everyone for supporting it! There are some songs we've been playing uploaded on this site - Click up on 'More' in the navigation bar, then choose 'Files'. You can download any song and print it off. PLEASE do upload any songs that you would like to play on Thursday - just go to FILES and choose 'Add a File' - its pretty easy to do. Then we can all look at the song beforehand and get a feel for it. See you on Thursday
