Jazz Jam #61

For maximum enjoyment of all, there will be Instrument Limits so that we can have 3 Ensembles playing 3 sets of 2 Tunes:

Piano - 4

Vocals - 3

Guitar - 6

Horns/Wind - 6

Drums - 1 (In Addition to House Drummer)

Bass - 2 (In addition to House Bassist)

Everyone else can come anyway to watch and support the others. There is no limit to being in the audience!

***

Show up and have some fun!

The routine: Sign up for Jams on the sheet and we'll call everyone by ensemble group.

Each group gets to play 2 tunes in a Set. Please discuss intro/endings/tempo/style ahead of time to avoid restarts.

Vocalists get to sing one tune per set. Always bring music in your key (bring at least 5 leadsheets). Although note that horns may need to transpose so complex arrangements may not work.

Other than that, the group decides what to play (well, hopefully it's Jazz). And if you call a tune, better know how to play the head :)

All levels welcome.

To improve your experience, if you're new, just watch first so you understand the interaction. Maybe you don't sit in till the next jam. There's a list of common tunes up top under 'Pages'. A little preparation on some frequently called tunes will save the day.

Always helpful to have the iRealB App on iOS/Android! This group mostly uses that.

    At this moment, I don't have a confirmed Drummer. So please check this page later to make sure I don't cancel.

    Hello! It's been years since I've attended this meet up, but it looks great! Might you need another singer for Monday night? (www.reverbnation.com/alilewis). Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
