September Potluck & Pickers Party

  • Jo Rankin

Bring a dish to share and your instrument of choice - BYOB, if you are so inclined.  I have coffee, water, utensils, napkins and paper plates (usually a big pan of lasagna too).  We try to eat promptly at 12 (but usually 12:30 or so... we're on musician time) and then go down to the den to play, play, play.  

Hope to see you there!  JO

    This was my first time attending, I met a lot of really nice people. I loved Renee's songs and Kathy's brownies!! I really enjoyed it, Jo told me I had to play something next time I come, I told her to break out the spoons. Nice to meet everyone.

    HI JO,

    Just joined and my first meeting will be next Saturday. I'm always looking to meet songwriters and hear new stuff. I'm actually playing the Festival on the 14th, 2:30 to 3:30 with my duo partner Misha! Hope to see you all there!!

      was good to meet you Mark - it was a little crowded downstairs so I didn't get to hear more than one of your songs. Liked what I heard!

    I'd like to come by, but I don't really know the city, and I'm not sure if I'll be renting a car or hoofing it around town..I'll be staying in a hotel fairly close to downtown, so it will all depend on my transportation situation while I'm in the area, but I'd love to come, any suggestions on things to bring? I won't have a kitchen, or I'd offer to cook ribs..

    Hi Jo, Sat 7 Sep 10-1pm is the time of my Open Day to launch my How To Sing School group classes on music row. Can I come later at say 2pm? I'm looking forward to meeting you all and sharing some songs.

    1 · August 26, 2013

    • JO

  • tom d.

    coming from Bellevue, what it the best way to get to your house ..looking forward to meeting you and the rest of the folks

    1 · August 13, 2013

    • JO

      Just google the address and it'll show you the best route. I am not too familiar with Bellevue, so I'd probably give you poor directions :)

      August 25, 2013

    • tom d.

    1 · August 18, 2013

    • JO

      Just bring whatever you enjoy (at least there will be something you like :))

    Hi Jo, I meant to send this to my husband Mark and it signed me up by mistake! I will not be coming, but Mark will be signing up and attending.
    Thanks!

    1 · August 25, 2013

    • JO

      That's fine, Gina. Some spouses do come and listen (although they don't write or play).

      August 25, 2013

  • JERRY G.

    Hey, Ms. Jo, I have 2 friends who wanna come with me, but they aren't members of meetup.com (yet), do they need to sign up or can they just show up with me? Thanks.

    August 25, 2013

    • JO

      Anyone is welcome..... there's quite a few "regulars" who don't sign up (some who aren't in the meetup). The more, the merrier!

  • JERRY G.

    Hi Jo, I won't lie, I am very new to this, I am stepping out of my element in a way. I'm all about trying new things and what better way to do them, than to just do them. I have been composing lyrics since I was a child, but I never learned how to play any instruments. My brother had the gift of playing by ear, I have the gift of writing. I am not a shy guy, but when it comes to stepping into a completely different situation, like this, I clam up a bit. So forgive me, when I show up and act a little shy, it's because this is a whole new thing for me. I'm excited, but yet nervous. But what I'm concerned about is, since I don't know how to "play, play, play", can I still attend? Thank you and I'm sorry my message is so long.

    Jay (Jerry)

    • JERRY G.

      what food/dessert/drink should I bring?

      1 · August 25, 2013

    • JO

      Anything you would like to eat, Jerry.... There's always a big variety. Thanks!
