What we're about

This group is dedicated to the many amateur musos around Brisbane hungry to play music with other like-minded souls.

Come out from your bedroom and join in the fun. Playing to strangers is daunting. Playing with friends is rewarding.

All skill levels, experience and styles are welcome. Let's help each other improve our confidence, skills and musicality.

Jams should be frequent and cater to members throughout the greater Brisbane region.
