This meet-up is dedicated to people who like music and like to play music. This includes all the genres you can think of (Film music, Classical Music, Pop Music, Ghazals, Folk, Rock, Fusion, etc.) as well as different regions. We conduct Music Jams, Live Performances, Discussions on Music, and of course Music Listening. In addition to learning and exploring familiar songs and music, we hope to expose people to new types of music and new songs to better bring together Indians of all backgrounds.
If you want to play music with others, improve your music chops, meet people who like listening to/playing the same kind of music that you do and learn/grow an appreciation for music then this is the group for you.
As far as times and attendance goes, even though this is a mostly Indian meetup group, we don't believe in or subscribe to the concept of "IST" ("Indian Standard Time" or being late and expecting that to be totally normal and acceptable social behavior). It's inconsiderate and disrespectful for the people planning, the people attending, and the people hosting. When a time is posted, the meetup will start soon after that posted start time so it is imperative that if you RSVP "Yes", that you be considerate to your fellow group members and arrive on time. Emergencies are understandable and there are always unforeseen circumstances but it's better to be transparent in those situations and let the group know that you'll be late. If a member shows up very late, then that member will receive a Strike (For Details, see "Strike System" section below).
It is expected that if you RSVP "Yes" that you honor your RSVP. If you cannot come and know that you cannot come then please change your RSVP to "No" accordingly at least 24 hours in advance. Failure to do so for an event will result in a "Strike" for the member who No Showed an event (For Details, see "Strike System" section below). Meetup is not an afterthought nor should it be thought of as such when there are people putting in time and energy to make it happen. Many events will have a limit as to how many people can attend. It is simply not fair to those on the waiting list who would like to attend to lose a spot to someone who no-showed, or who cancelled with insufficient notice for others to make plans. It only takes 2 minutes to update your RSVP.
If a member is a "No Show"and flakes out for an event or arrives considerably late for an event then that member will receive a Strike. Upon receiving a Strike, that member will be have the very special privilege of having their profile be publicly designated as having a Strike. Furthermore that member will be given the least amount of preference for RSVP'ing to another event. If that member gets 3 strikes, then just like in America's favorite pastime Baseball, 3 strikes and you're out. Or as we say in cricket, "You're Out". That member will be removed from the group.
The group likes to have members that are courteous, reliable and respectful and that includes following the attendance policy.
