Marv's 3rd Acoustic Jam on the Court
Early arrival is okay if you're ready to help out.
End time: When everyone drops, the skeeters are full, folks split for Dun Dealgan, or the police arrive.
BYOB for sure. BYO: instruments, sunscreen, bug repellant, lawn chairs, stools, music stands, lawn chairs, blankets, hand drums, instruments, djembes, doumbeks, lawn chairs, bodrans, didgeridoos, kazoos, did I mention lawn chairs? etc... Pop-up canopies will be much appreciated. The deck has a ceiling underneath, and pop-ups will block the sun and any very really highly unlikely rain showers.
This is a fun community jam occasion focusing upon music, learning and camaraderie. Leave politics, religion, weapons, arguments outside the property line. Multiple playing circles happen. Folks at all skill levels may share a circle, and "beginners" are encouraged to relax and join in with any circle. Typically a circle is a round robin scenario with each person singing/leading a song around the circle, then switch to the next person. No hogging, hotdogging, butting ahead, or gunslinging, please. Let's relax and enjoy this time together.
Small amps allowed ONLY if they do not overpower a nearby acoustic guitar or vocals, and if you have a long enough extension cord. Host will adjust volume as needed.
Optional pot-luck: bring a snack, fruit or entree dish with serving utensils to share if you can. BRING SOME CHILI if you want. Don't be offended if we ask ingredients of anything you bring: allergy purposes. We will provide some CHILI, hamburgers, hotdogs, ice, soda, and water.
Park around the court or down the street as needed. Drop off at my driveway if you bring something heavy. NO PETS!!! We have dogs & a cat (all sequestered), lawn, garden, outdoor critters, and woods; in case anyone has allergies, please be prepared.
Supervised children are okay. NOT OKAY: sitting on deck railing, hanging off deck, climbing fences, roaming the woods, forgetting to take your kids home or... you get the drift ;-).
PLEASE keep your RSVP up to date so we know how many to expect. We are trying to plan according to headcount. Show-ups without RSVP not appreciated. No RSVPs after June 15. THIS IS AN OUTDOOR EVENT, NO RAIN DATE; I will determine go/no go earlier in the morning. Smoking outdoors only; butt urns will be provided. Dress appropriately, it could be hot during day, yet get cool come sunset!
Please review and answer the questions so we can have a safe, stress free good time.
