Acoustic Music Meetup @Mannion's

The fun continues!!!

Join us for another acoustic jam at Mannion's. This is an inclusive jam, not an open mic. Members are encouraged to sing and play along the entire night.

We will be meeting on the ground floor in the side room. Look for the folks with the musical instruments.

Mannion's serves delicious food and has a nice selection of beers. Most of us take a dinner break around 7:30. After dinner, we play until they kick us out--usually around 11. Please bring cash to pay for your dinner and drinks.

There is an evolving setlist for this meetup--see the link in the left-hand column of our site. We usually get through all of the requests, most of our "semi-permantant" songs, plus about 20 more songs out of the over five hundred or so songs in our files.

If you would like to add a song to the setlist, make sure it is posted to our site in the "Files" section (see the link in the left-hand column of the site), then post your request in the "get the conversation started" section below.

    When I arrived, it seemed a little too loud and disorgnized, but it got better. Still could use more voices on the HARMONIES! But overall, it was a good night. Choir practice will be done for the season prretty soon, so I'll be able to make it more often and get to know some of the new people.

    Good to try some new stuff even if it is rough in the beginning. Just nurture the good ones. I like Bob's suggestions of cameo vocals and a lighter touch when needed.

    Sooo..i only gave it four stars; so what? we started off pretty rough; yes, it's an amateur group, but we don't want to SOUND like that, right? Mea culpa, too; I BOMBED (with napalm) "Babylon"; sorry Alan; couldn't get the key right! The second set got rockin'; "Mary Jane" and some of the other up-tempo standby's came out great! Good solos goin' on there, Brian and Ted and Tom and Joes! "Willin'" ultimately satisfying, "Spain", too! I think my high point for the night was "Pancho and Lefty", but Joe H's new song was right on the list with it! (Kinda like "Sultans Of Swing" visits NJAMP) SOOO sorry we killed "Both Sides Now"; that beautiful song deserves a cameo vocal and a delicate guitar touch; maybe we try again and half of us tone it down? Actually, there were a few songs that needed a lighter touch, I thought. Still, had a great time; no place better to be (except maybe collecting powerball winnings)! Love yas all!

    Nice to meet some new folks. One of these years we're going to get Babylon off the ground.

      Last night it was at the hover a few inches above the ground level, but like what the Wright Brothers started, there is promise. :-)

    Inspired by the great perfomances at Rolf's last Saturday let's do "The Letter", "Heart of Gold", and "Ruby Tuesday". I haven't heard Ruby Tuesday in decades (and never played it). Let's do it.
