Hello. I have been an in the closet and out of the closet musician for a very long time.
I would love to make new friends who like music and singing.
I play guitar, Mandolin (sorta) and sing.
Lots and lots of stuff. Folk, country, bluegrass, swing, jazz, gospel...
Sign me up for the next meetup at Bo's house on August 25th
The bridge walk is too far for me.
David: I just joined the closet group. What do you think of it? PK
To respond to your question, yes, I am an organizer of Closet Musicians, but not of Rise Up. Sorry if my response was confusing, just trying to cover all bases. I hope that clears things up?
PS Some people prefer not to post their address, only the town they live in, but provide the info to the organizer so that it can be mailed only to the attendees shortly prior to the meetup.
If you want to host a Closet or Rise Up meetup, just check your meetup calendar for a free date, then click "Suggest a Meetup" on the home page, or for Closet, you can just email me the particulars: when, where, how many attendees you can handle and and anything else you want folks to know. In either case, I beleive an organizer will need to approve and post the meetup.
We have a bass and a tenor section. Occasionally basses sing a low F. A couple of our basses gravel around on F, and still sing bass. You could sing bass on some songs and ten on others if you like. Tenors occasionally sing as high as F-G above middle C.
Sorry to hear you wasted a trip...this meetup is scheduled for March 16. Will you still be able to make it then?
Don't get discouraged. We've all been waitlisted at one time or another. Just RSVP as soon as you see the announcement. You can always change to a "no" later. Alternatively, you could host an event for the overflow folks, and if space is an issue, limit the number of people your home can comfortably hold. See you at our next event.
