La Jolla Worship Jam Night

We are blessed to have La Jolla Christian Fellowship open the doors for us, to bring San Diego musicians together for a night of worship and encouragement. All levels of musicians are invited to join, from professionals to motivated beginners. Guitarists, vocalists, bass, keyboards/piano, drummers and other instruments are welcome!

David Dykstra will be hosting this event. The church has a complete back line, (Drums, Bass Amp, Keyboard and Amp, P.A. with monitors and piano), Just bring your instrument and cables. 

“Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Col 3:16)

Our worship nights are friendly and fun. There are lots of options: you can
1. Perform open mic (either solo or with one or two others to back you up), or
2. Lead or Play in a band (bring your own or join up with other attendees), or
3. Sing along from the audience

Everyone gets a chance to play, sometimes up to four songs. However, on busier nights, you may be asked to play in either a band or open mic (not both), or limit the number of songs to two. We all cooperate and make adjustments on the spot, depending on how many people show up. The goal is (of course) to be fair to everyone.

6:00 pm to 7:00 Sign in and Set Up (late sign ins will be subject to time availability.)
7:00 - 7:15 Here I am to Worship jam (key of D)
7:15 pm - 9:00 pm - Alternating of Open Mic (about 5-10 minutes) and Mini bands (Bands usually play about 15-20 minutes each, depending on time and how many bands show up.) Details about the mini bands will be updated below. Don't be shy - reach out to the leaders and <a>sign up</a>.
9:00 - 9:15 All Star Jam time!!! (as many musicians as we can get at one time)
9:15 - 9:30 Wrap up comments, break down and goodbyes

      Next time come on out, it's a friendly group, a lot of us don't bring anyone with us. That's part of a jam night, get to play with people we don't know.

    So. A last-minute family reunion is calling me to Fresno tomorrow evening. I wish I could be with you all. Blessings to each and every one of you as you worship and perform before an audience of One.

    Blessings for a wonderful night worshipping the Lord. May the Spirit of the Lord be present to overflow and touch each heart. I am flying out on a business trip tomorrow or I would have been there to support the night.

    So, how does this work? We just show up and do what?

      I have a list of songs, I will try to do 3 or 4 depending on time. They are - Wonderful Cross - The Stand - Hosanna (Baloche) - O Worship The King - Your Love Never Fails - Everlasting God - Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus. For 3 weeks now I have a bad cough. I sang a little today and had trouble making it through a song, so hopefully it's better by the 20th. Your prayers for healing would be great.

    Steve Messick said he would covet all your prayers! He is worshiping the Lord everyday, even in the midst of this tough situation. Please consider sending him a word of encouragement, here is his profile:

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
