My first meetup to organize was last year's booooooojam. That a year has already gone by is truly scary. Contact with Jerry Garcia to see if he will attend still eludes me ... though I just heard of this really great psychic in Brooklyn. Halloween themed tab welcome, costumes are optional.
7:30-9:00 - 1 1/2 hours of our usual selection of songs you think the group would like to play. Try to keep the songs to five chords or less; try to avoid C#dim7's and that ilk. Since it's Halloween season, monster/ghost/witch songs would be fun. Last year I brought Purple People Eater as an example of the kind of high brow quality seasonal songs I'm talking about. Please bring at least 12 copies of your tab to hand out to the group. You can track the number of people coming on our website.
9:00-9:30ish - Showoff time - got a song you or others in the group have been practicing together and think you are ready for prime time, here's your chance.
9.30pm-till: Socializing - when showoff time is done those interested can adjourn to the Harry's a couple of stores away from Groove.
