HOLIDAY PARTY - Performance Showcase

HOLIDAY PARTY and PERFORMANCE SHOWCASE 2012!

Monday, December 10th 7:00 - 9:30

Believe it or not, the holiday season is upon us. Our slow jam has been together for over FOUR years. What better time to ring in the holidays, eat, drink and perform for one another?

This year's party we feature a performance showcase and food a-plenty. If you would like to perform (EVERYONE is encouraged to perform-we are a supportive audience) please take the following steps:


  • RSVP to me to let me know what you would like to perform and who will perform with you. You can perform solo or with a group of up to 4 people.  RSVP by December 8th.
  • Banjo Bill and/or Kim will be the "house band". They can back you up if you need a guitar, banjo or mando. Please let me know if you will need him.

GREAT FOOD begininng at 7:00. Performances start at 7:30. It will cost you $5.00 for a memorable evening of food and music. There's a one drink minimum at the cash bar. Please support Paddy's and tip well. Stay afterwards to jam. It won't be slow after the showcase, but feel free to join or just listen to great players jam.

Even if you've already told me verbally that you want to perform, I would like an official response via e-mail -- it's easier to keep track of.

Thanks, Sue Batkin - Jam Founder and Organizer

    I had a great time. Everyone sounded great. I was really surprised by how bluesy and good Gary's voice sounded with the microphone. I want to also compliment phil for his audacious triumph -- doing three fiddle tunes unaccompanied and pulling it off fabulously! But everybody was fabulously fabulous.

    Yep, I agree with Kim about Gary's very bluesy vocal chords. It sounded powerful and effortless at the same time. Looking forward to more.

    That was fantastic! Much good music, played by many, enjoyed by all. Sue Batkin is an inspiration. The kickoff song she did with Bill and Kim was top notch. And "By the Mark"—a great song—they nailed it. Two highlights in an evening of highlights.

    I agree whole heartedly. Dale thanks for the awesome photos. They really capture the joy of the night. Everyone sounded fantastic. lynn what was that song you did? I loved how you all arranged it so perfectly. Just gorgeous. And then I loved how we all brought the house together at the end with wild mountain thyme. We should do that at the jam and try to take breaks to it. Love to all of you dear ones!!!

      Sue, I sure would love to come but need some info. Can you please contact me directly at [masked]? I've had some bad luck of late, showing up to meetups with my guitar thinking I'd get to jam only to find myself in a concert ticket line. Ack!
