What we're about

Acoustic jam! Singers, acoustic guitar players, bass (electric bass is OK!), mandolin, uke, banjo, percussion, harmonica, fiddle, accordion, keyboard(you are welcome to use our piano or bring your own electronic keyboard), horns, etc. We have two mics on stands that we pass around, for anyone who wants a bit more volume when they lead a song.

Bring a music stand and 25 copies of lyrics/chords for songs you want to do. Or, pick a favorite song from our ever-expanding collection. We have 3-ring binders containing a few hundred songs (!) from past jams.

$5 building use fee. Spectators welcome at no charge, and there is no need to register if you just want to listen.

Virtual Open Mic

Online event

We expect to continue holding our events online while social distancing rules are in place. These Virtual Open Mics have been a wonderful way to connect during the Covid-19 shutdown! We can't sing or play in unison because of the syncing issue on Zoom, but we do the next best thing by trading verses on a few songs.

We'll send out a link to our Zoom session (to all who have signed up) about a half hour before the start time.

You can download the Zoom app on your phone, tablet or computer at https://zoom.us The default sound is set for conference calls, not music, so the sound is not great quality. You can make it better if you can tweak it. (Apparently, there are more options for tweaking on computers than on phones and tablets.) Here's one YouTube video that might be helpful:

If you want to check out the songs collected from past jams, Phil and Jeff have set them up as a zip file, which you can download by clicking:

So please join us! You can just listen and chat with people if you don't want to perform.

Hope you can make it!
