Brookmont Church Craft Fair (players needed)

Our host for the Bethesda gypsy jam, the Brookmont Community, will hold their annual craft and bake sale on Saturday Dec. 3 from 11-4. We need some volunteers to play music for the show from 12-3. Grouping and sets will depend on the number of interested players. If you wish to play, please RSVP to this meetup.

    Based on replies so far, here's a proposed lineup. I wanted to keep the groupings small to give people plenty of playing time. If some show/or not we may shuffle things around. I've also shuffled a few songs in the sets around just based on my experience of who calls what. We'll play everything in the keys of the django fakebook for simplicity. I hope this suits you all. If this doesn't work for you, please let me know.

    The fair is in the social hall on the lower level.
