“ I was very impressed. I had about given up on Jams and song writers peformance gatherings. To many times I have had to endure people who took their turn to try to sing a song they did not know. Universally, these folks came to perform and entertain - they respected their audience enough to prepare. ”

“ I believe that this group is brimming with opportunity! As nice as things are now about the group, I have a couple of suggestions that might make the group an even better experience for the members. Firstly, we have several members (including myself) with CD's of their work to share with others. My fiance', Cyndi, and myself enjoyed listening to Tammy Hix's CD, as an example, that we got from her at the Meetup. I would like to suggest that EVERY member that has prerecorded media to offer bring a copy to the next Meetup, so that we can randomly play cuts from those CD's during the time between performers, as well as at the beginning and ending of the gathering, in order to fill the awkward silence; providing a more festive environment and making it easier for dialog between members. Secondly, I would love to see a second gathering (non-performance) organized sometime during the month that is devoted to networking and a Q & A session for less experienced writers. Call me, Marcus! ”
