  • This location is shown only to members

So come on out to our next red hot hootenanny and be anything but bloo! Come celebrate the solstice and the arrival of summer with us! Check your inhibitions and fatigue at the door as you help us raise the roof sky high! Is there a better way to spend an afternoon? RSVP here:
http://www.folk.meetu... (click on "Featured Meetup" on the right, and be sure you're signed in). If you're a veteran SOJO'er, you already know the program, but details of our next meetup are above (and below), for the benefit of all SOJO members.
If you're new to Sing Out Jam Out (SOJO): Welcome, we're happy you found us and we look forward to a rewarding association together! All the details you need for coming to sing and/or play with us are on this page. Always feel free to email any of the organizers if you need more information. MOST IMPORTANT POINTS: 1. Please do your best to bring a copy of Rise Up Singing. The book is out of print, but you should have no trouble buying a copy on eBay,, or We also may have loaners available with a "borrow one time only" honors policy. 2. Please do RSVP. It helps us know how to set up the room beforehand and relieves us of the need to shuffle furniture around as members arrive after the merrymaking has begun. 3. Bring something to drink, as singing is likely to make you thirsty. 4. We request, but do not require, a $4 contribution to help pay for renting the room.
5. Parking availability is our most frequently asked question. Free parking is available on weekends at nearby garages, the closest being on 23rd St between Rt. 1 and Crystal Drive, just a short distance west of Crystal Drive on the north side of 23rd St. ------------------------------------------------------------------- FURTHER DETAILS, if you like: * Our next gathering is Saturday, June 19, at our usual Crystal City venue (wheelchair accessible); exact location is above. We'll meet as we always do, from 2 to 5 p.m., with a break around 3:30. * For detailed directions from the Metrorail station, make sure you're signed into SOJO's website, click on "Files" in the menu at upper left, and choose "Crystal City Metro to SOJO directions" posted by Freddy on Sept. 7, 2008, or see the more brief metro directions above. * Please arrive a little early if you can, to help set up and so we have a musical quorum to start. * Feel free to bring lyrics to hand out, preferably with chords, for songs not in the book. * Click on "About" on the left side of our Web site's screen for additional information about our format, etc. (You are either now on our Web site, or you can get there by clicking the link below.) * Click on "Photos" on the left side of our Web site's screen for pictures of some of our gatherings.
Whether you're new to SOJO or not so new, we look forward to singing and/or jamming with you!

    Let the record show that we welcomed NewBees Ken, Matt, and Elie's guest Jessi; that we welcomed back Aaron AKA AC, Bjarne, Janet, Jerry, and Matt P. after long hiati; and that Nancy B.'s guest was Mulu. susan's guest was Dan. Does the record show all that? DOES IT? If not, please let it. NOW.

    SOJA was great fun, but my voice was NOT so great.. I must have been screaming in my sleep again! Sorry folks! Also, I'm posting pics with similar problems or ...ahem... uniqueness : )

    A full spectrum of songs chosen by members of the group, from rousing Gospel "Just a Closer Walk with Thee" to Gershwin's "Summertime" to "Drunken Sailor" once sung by Burl Ives. I enjoyed myself. Glad to be back after minimal attendance in the last year.

    Summertime blooz tend to be deeper and richer than othertime blooz, but also more inconvenient and unwelcome than othertime blooz. I could go on, but perhaps I'd best stop now before someone decides to try for an assassination....

    The ogrenizers seem to be dropping out of this particular SOJO like files (or perhaps running in terror) - we had two drop out in a couple of hours this morning, therefore I offer this quote from Alexander Haig: "Constitutionally, gentlemen, you have the President, the Vice President and the Secretary of State in that order, and should the President decide he wants to transfer the helm to the Vice President, he will do so. He has not done that. As of now, I am in control here..." (3/30/81)
