What we're about

Are you a musician or singer in the Basel or Zurich areas looking to meet others? Or maybe you used to sing or play an instrument years ago and have been thinking about starting again? Well now's the time! This group is for anyone that wants to collaborate with other musicians and singers, or just jam and share musical talents with like minded people. The idea is to bring musicians and / or singers together, be it for regular practice, musical collaborations, or even impromptu jam sessions. Whether you're starting off singing or playing a new instrument or have been singing / playing for years it can be difficult doing it by yourself. There's nothing like meeting fellow musicians and pooling ideas and skills, and the whole is practically always greater than the sum of its parts!

Another idea is to link Basel and Zurich together as they are less than an hour apart. There are lots of people that travel between both cities on a daily and weekly basis, and any meetups in Basel are open to anyone from Zurich and vice versa. So for example if you're from Basel and find yourself in Zurich of a weekend and itching to play your guitar or maybe sing with some backing musicians, then this group will make it easy to arrange a session or join any that might already be taking place.

The group is open to all skill levels from beginner upwards so don't be shy :) If you're a singer, guitarist, keyboard player, drummer, or play any other instrument and want to join up with others in the Basel or Zurich areas then sign up - you've got nothing to lose :)
