Networking and Song Circle Jam
Hey Musicians, Songwriters & Music Lovers-
We had a good thing going at the April Meetup, so let's do it again in May! We look forward to meeting our new members, catching up on what's been happening with our current members and then have an opportunity to perform some tunes solo or have others join the jam. ATTENTION: The meeting location has been changed to the Nisqually Bar and Grill, 10323 Martin Way, East Olympia - exit 114 off of I-5.
Bring your instrument and friends if you like. BTW, Nisqually Bar and Grill has great hot food, family atmosphere, and full bar, so you may want to save your appetite. Larry Luvaul will be hosting!
Let's try to make it a full house!
SONG CIRCLES are a traditional, relaxed way to share time, fun, and art, with the community. Acoustic instruments of all kinds are welcomed, but not necessary if you simply love to sing. No one dominates, but anyone may lead the group in song or entertain when it is their turn; each member gets only one turn per round. Members may enter or leave the circle as they wish, but it is understood that at all times within and without the circle, no one is to be rude or disruptive, and to that end audience participation is discouraged.
We pick a spot and arrange chairs in a large circle. We choose a person to start, and that person has three options to choose from for their turn in the round:
1. PLAY: Play or sing a song for the group or play an instrumental. You may also invite other members to play or jam along with you...or not. Your choice. All musical styles are encouraged but watch the profanity when children are in the audience.
2. CHOOSE: Choose a song you'd like to hear or have the group sing.
3. PASS: For members who choose not to sing or play and those members that may be shy or tend to blank out under pressure.
