Masala musical group's meetup goal is to form a network of like-minded musicians who just want to jam! and will join in live performances around cities within Arizona. All instruments players are appreciated. Most jams will be with lead singers , but if someone wants to propose a jam for a particular style- go ahead! Only advance level instrument players will be needed, at minimum you should be able to follow chords and simple song structures. If you are a complete beginner or a total pro- let the host know so they can indicate if it is appropriate for you to join our Meetup sessions Now for the rules: -Communication: This means a lot. Other's must know what chords we will be playing and what styles of music and rhythm we can use. Also, we need to listen to each other when playing, leave room for others to play and take turns with the solos. Lower your volume as appropriate (particularly if there is a vocalist). -RSVP: please try to reply as soon as possible if you're interested. Spots will be reserved according to the number of people showing up at the practice location. Zero tolerance for no-shows. If you RSVP - please show up or you will have a bunch of pissed off musicians that had to spend more than they anticipated. If you don't show up, you will be removed from the group. -Payment: The cost of the Meetup will be split evenly among everyone- even if you showed for the last 10 minutes, you will be asked to pay an even share. If we are booked for a paid program we will split equally among each participating member. -The music: Anything goes! Bollywood, Rock, Jazz, Funk, House, Drum & Bass, Bluegrass, Disco etc..- We highly encourage anything. Feel free to specify whatever you want if you propose a jam- circulate sheet music, etc...- so long as you can get people to show up. We prefer open improvisational jam sessions with latest songs and any new songs we can create with our own arrangement and composition -Community: Members of the group are welcome to make suggestions or can host your own jam event . When we go out for performance everyone should work as a team with equal responsibility . Lets Have fun and keep our group going.
P.S: Only invited and auditioned members will be allowed for Jam and Performance sessions, address for practice will be only for the selected and invited members
