What we're about

Welcome to the Acoustic Music Community!

We are a supportive community of musicians living all over the greater Denver/Boulder area, who meet regularly for a variety of music-centered activities including song circles, jams, performances, musical pot-lucks, song-writing sessions, and instructional groups. Events are held in numerous locations around Denver & Boulder, including private homes, churches and local businesses. Members are encouraged to host their own events, or suggest new events.

We encourage you to RSVP and attend an upcoming event, to develop and share your skills, play/sing/jam with other musicians, make new friends, and learn new songs. All levels of musicians are welcome, from beginner to professional, as are all types of musicians, including guitarists, singers, percussionists, fiddlers, bassists, and pianists. Many types of music are played from bluegrass to rock, and members can post chord and lyric sheets for songs under http://www.meetup.com/Acoustic-Music-Commun... [MORE --> FILES] to share with other members.

Member dues of $5 a year are requested, to help pay website fees, buy basic sound equipment for our group’s performances, and have at least one really great party/jam/hootenanny a year. Most events are free to attend, but some may have an associated cost, particularly instructional events and some performances. We also ask that you support the local businesses that host our events by purchasing food & drinks if applicable.

The goals of this group are to:
• Make friends around our shared love of music
• Improve our musical skills
• Improve our self-confidence
• Encourage each other to reach our musical goals
• Develop an appreciation for various genres including traditional and contemporary blues, folk, rock, pop, country, jazz, bluegrass and world music.
• Provide information about the local music scene where members can perform and enjoy listening to others.

Open mic at Front Range Brewing.

Front Range Brewing Company

The Open Mic at Front Range Brewery is the go to place in Lafayette for newbies and veterans alike. Come out for a set and a free brew for performing! They have a PA, piano, and assorted gear. • Collaborations are encouraged! • Set length will 15 minutes. Please be mindful of your time slot and keep your setup, tuneup, etc to a minimum. The atrium is a great place to tuneup! • Please remove yourself from the RSVP list if you're not going to make it. It steers people away from attending when they think it is full but there are no shows. • This is not a Meetup only event so an RSVP doesn't guarantee you a spot. Signup is 6:15. Videos: 12/27/16 (https://www.facebook.com/pontillio/videos/1529944687020452/) 4/11/17 (https://www.facebook.com/pontillio/videos/1659949734019946/?l=1327441744920068970) Live Stream 9/12/17 (https://www.facebook.com/pontillio/videos/vb.100000148067900/1826526750695576/?type=3&theater)

Saturday Jam Session at Bar Elevate

Bar Elevate

Bring your guitar or other acoustic instrument of choice and/or your singing voice for a laid-back jam session. We'll go around the room and let each person choose a song for the group. We use a projector to display lyrics and chords from the Ultimate Guitar Tabs app. Please come prepared with a handful of songs to suggest - rock, pop, country, folk, blues, jazz, gospel, etc. You may want to check out Ultimate Guitar Tabs ahead of time to make sure the song you want is available and to identify the best version. If you'd like to join me to get some lunch off of Bar Elevate's menu beforehand, I recommend that you show up around 12:15 so we can be ready to make music at 1:00. For those of you who have attended in the past, Lazy Dog at 120th and Federal in Westminster has changed to Bar Elevate - same location and room.
