What we're about

Damn that Coronavirus!

Hey y'all! Bear with me... In the spirit of staying safe, The Austin Music Connection has gone into hibernation. We'll come back out of our cave some day when things are safer.

The official hibernation is likely to be long. I'm staying home; I'm retired and don't have to work. I'm staying out of stores, and so on until a vaccine is developed. It's a bummer, but my family and I see it as the most prudent course of action. Yes, it could easily mean 12 - 18 months of my life will not be as grand as I wish, but hopefully the following 10, 20, 30 years or so will still be achieved by biting the bullet now and staying safe

The Meetup organization is recommending no in-person meetups. If a member of this group wishes to organize something on-line, I'll help. Otherwise, I won't be organizing anything for a while. So if you're thinking you want to organize something, please drop me a line and let's see what we can figure out.

~ ~ ~ The Real Introduction ~ ~ ~

The Music Connection is looking for musicians and music lovers of all types. Seriously! All are welcome!

We welcome people who are beginners as well as people who play an instrument well. We welcome people who simply like to sing, and don't necessarily play an instrument. As the group grows, we will segment into groups with commonalities. For example, eventually we hope to develop cohesive groups that...

• Enjoy jamming,

• Enjoy improvising to a blues chord pattern,

• Enjoy campfire-style songbooks and singing,

• Enjoy playing music focused with amplified instruments,

• Enjoy either of the only two kinds of music: Country and Western,

• Enjoy music focused on acoustic instruments (guitar, ukulele, djembe, etc)

Get the idea?

Please join us!

This group is an outgrowth from the Mueller Musicians, who have met several times previously. We will use their first two playlists as the basis for our meetup. The playlist can be accessed here: http://tedherr.net/m/mueller.html

Our first meetup will be on Wednesday, October 24 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. It will be in the Mueller neighborhood with a $5 attendance fee to cover the room rental. We will publish the address when the room is confirmed.

Improv Event - Not really in December. Read details for explanation.

A couple of people in this group asked about an Improvisation meetup. We haven't done one before, but, I thought I'd put it out there and see who responds.

Notice that date is December 31. Not the real date. It's just sort of a placeholder so we can put this out there easily and gather the names of people interested.

The location is also "To Be Determined." So click to RSVP and we'll see how many people respond. We can then start to get some real details for date and location.
