April Showers make way for the Blues @ Cantina

We are shorted a Jam this month, so let's make it up at the Cantina Lounge. Volunteers for 25 watt or smaller and a drum kit. Great turn out last month and we are ready for more incredible music.

      Great job, Helen! Hope you had fun and maybe we'll see you at the next one! Boscoe's, maybe?

    Ah, I had a great time. Just the right number of players, so most players got to play twice (not all, but most) . Volume was kept under control, and plenty of good sets. Just a note to the guitar players why I requested no boost or dirt pedals be used on my old Gibson amp, that amp has the original 1954 Jensen speaker in it that I want to keep original and don't want to stress that old cone and voice coil by pushing a lot of distortion through it. I hope you can understand that. Personally, I think it sounds great just as it is, not needing any pedals in front. Though somebody did tweak the knobs after we asked you all to not do that. hmmmmm...... Anyway, it was a great jam, lot's o'fun, lot's of new players; a big welcome to Paul, Steve and Helen and anyone else whose name I forgot. Hope you all enjoyed it and come back out to do it again. Nice to see my old buddy Victor, he's been MIS since the old days at Westside Bar & Grill in HB. Happy birthday to Dave and Gary (good cake

    Hi, are singers welcome too?

    1 · April 19, 2013

    • Richard

      Singers are not only welcome, but encouraged. But as Claudio noted, it's a blues jam, so we're looking to do blues songs. Come on out and check it out, see how it goes.

    • Richard

      TEE, I got the mic's/stands covered. Will also bring a vintage guitar amp.

      April 17, 2013

    • Lori C.

      Got it, thanks!

      April 17, 2013

  • David B.

    I would love to come out and give this a try. I played bass in bands for about 15 years. Switched back to guitar about 6 months ago. I just recently got into the blues so I'm not familiar with a lot of the standards. How much knowledge is expected?

    1 · April 17, 2013

    • Jim F

      David - the chord progressions are kept pretty simple because it's an unrehearsed jam. A lot of it is I-IV-V in the 12-bar blues format. If you understand what that means and you know how to play it then you should be good to go. This is for guitar. If you're playing bass you need to be much more up to speed. We ask that only experienced bass players and drummers sign up to play.

      April 17, 2013

    • David B.

      Thanks Jim, I should be able to handle that.

      April 17, 2013

  • steve s.

    April 14, 2013

  • Lori C.

    You know you always have the Blues Jr. if you're stuck Tony... so please just let me know if you need it.

    April 14, 2013

  • Tony ".

    Just a reminder, we need small watt amps, if possible 25 or smaller, and please, no foot pedals. The room can't take the volume of our fabulous music. I will be arriving a bit late so Richard has graciously offered to open up the jam until I arrive, so be on your best behavior you all.

    April 13, 2013

  • Tony ".

    Thanks Robin, we'll take it-15 watt. Anyone open for the bass and amp?-two more Jr.s needed...two mics--
