It's time for our December Pot Luck !!!Holiday Party!!! meetup at the Annex. Here's the short and sweet on the format for this meetup. We will supply some snacks, water and more. Members will bring a "Pot Luck" dish to share and their favorite non-alcoholic beverage (the Annex does not allow alcohol on premise).
Attending members and guests will enjoy delicious “Pot Luck” food, numerous solo performances, group performances, socializing with your fellow musicians, and having a fun time! As always, members can submit your suggestions for this month's group playlist. Post in a comment below and upload today!
We are also looking for volunteers to help who can spare some time to assist with planning and setup. The areas I'm looking for assistance with are: Decorations, Food Coordination and Photography/Videography. I'll be handling the audio equipment setup and performances management. So if any of these areas are of interest and you can spare some time, please let me know. If you can't volunteer but would like to nominate another member for the task, let me know who that lucky member is too.
The Boca Raton Community Center Annex, located in East Boca Raton, has a large room for the meetup and can comfortably handle 40 people for this Pot Luck !!!Holiday Party!!!. All types of musical Instruments are welcome at this venue. Electric or bass guitars with amps are fine when keeping the volume down to that of acoustic guitar levels during group play. Tambourines, harmonicas, portable drum or percussion machines are okay as well. You may want to bring an extension cord if you need power. Remember to download the songs to your device (GRAB AND GO) - there is no WIFI or internet service at this location.
Learning and playing music is what this group is all about. All levels of players are welcome. If you sing, yes - we always need singers to show up too. While we can play along to the tracks on the song list, most members prefer to play without the track and provide the vocals ourselves.
For any songs you would like to learn/play and share with the group, upload them to the Files area. You can upload text, Word or PDF formats of your songs. While PDF is the most universal format of these, the other formats can easily be edited allowing members to make suggestion for improvement. Sheet music is usually the most accurate type to upload but not as easily found compared to chord sheets or tab formats. Before uploading, check your music against a common track of the song. Be sure it's complete including intro, outro, chord timing, accurate lyrics and in the same key. This allows for more compatible group play. Always suggest a YouTube track for members to practice the song with. We will have tracks for each meetup's song list available when needed. Most songs will be played by the group without a backing track and we will provide the vocals. If you have some last minute music to share (like the day of the meetup), bring along printed copies for everyone.
Use the comments section below to suggest songs for this meetup's playlist. GRAB AND GO has the suggested playlist for this meetup. You can also post a comment there. Again, upload music for your suggestions and mention a YouTube link as well so we all can practice your songs.
Remember to RSVP as soon as possible. Seating is limited @ 40 people for this Pot Luck !!!Holiday Party!!!.
The Boca Raton Community Center Annex guidelines are in this PDF. Please review this information if you are new to this facility.
The Musicians of Boca Raton meetup group is run by your volunteer leadership team. We also need the support of our membership to share music ideas and provide songs for our monthly meetups. There is no cost to join at this time but we do suggest an annual contribution of $25 to offset our expenses which include: meetup fees, meetup location costs (the Annex) and costs related to our end of the year holiday party in December. Members can use the "Chip In" button on this page (above to the left) or a cash donation to the leadership team.
