What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in acoustic music. Players, singers, and listeners of all skill levels are encouraged to come. Visual artists are also encouraged to come – please see end of description.

We meet monthly, on the second Tuesday of each month, at the Veterans Park Rec Center in Delray Beach from 6:30 to 8:45pm.

All acoustic instruments are welcome: guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin, banjo, dobro, violin, cajon, djembe, hand percussion, accordion, etc. And of course, the human voice, since we'll be singing while we play. This is an ACOUSTIC music meetup, but a small bass amp is welcome for bass players.

The purpose of the group is to provide a welcoming platform for acoustic music enthusiasts of all types to come together to share songs and JAM! It's an opportunity to work on our craft, to practice while having fun with others who also love music. We hope it will also enable musicians to find others with goals and interests similar to their own.

The group setting is a great forum in which to practice taking lead vocals, as well as work on backups and harmonies. There will also be plenty of instrumental breaks where interested players can show off their soloing chops.

Some of our members are accomplished musicians. Others are beginners, trying an instrument for the first time. So we ask everyone to be respectful of all members in the group, and to be patient with those whose skill level might not be as advanced as your own. The best way to get better is to play with better players, so let's all support each other!

VISUAL ARTISTS - For friends, family and the artists among us, the Rec Center will be setting up tables and chairs with easels and art supplies for anyone wanting to explore their creativity in a welcoming environment.

Please feel free to join in, or just sit and listen. Everyone is welcome!

DAMM! Delray Acoustic Music (and Art) Meetup - Let's Jam!

Veterans Park Rec Center

This DAMM! meetup, : ) is made up of players, singers, artists, and listeners of all skill levels sharing our love of music, (and painting) in a collaborative, supportive environment. We go around the circle clockwise, giving each member the opportunity to lead a song of their choice while the group plays along. We play songs like, Drift Away, Stand By Me, Wagon Wheel, Fire, The Weight ... it's a fun, musically enriching, creative evening. I never leave without a smile on my face. We'll likely do some arranging on the fly to open up the songs for instrumental solos. If you'd like to lead a song please bring about 10 copies of a simple chord chart to share. This way everyone has the lyrics and chords in front of them. Please adjust the font size to be able to read it, if you can. Most of our group are wearing glasses these days. :) It's also helpful if you bring songs that are well-tailored to jamming - i.e. not too difficult, not too obscure, etc. Meetup charges me. I'd like to offset that cost. So there is a tip jar in the circle. The suggestion donation is $5.00, more if you can, for those who can't. Thank you. It's truly amazing to see how much people grow in their musicianship, by attending this group. If you're an amateur, don't be afraid, we are a gentle and easy group and you'll have a lot of fun practicing your instrument. Some come, join in the fun! 🖼 THE ART: For friends, family, and the visual artists among us, the Rec Center will be setting up tables and chairs with easels and art supplies for anyone wanting to explore their creativity in a non-instructional play environment. Make art while listening to your community of local musicians, what could be better? Hope to see you all soon! Cecilia St. King & Abby Morrell
