This is a community for amateur acoustic musicians to find each other, to play and sing together, and have a great time sharing the joy of making music. From beginning to advanced players - all skill levels are encouraged to join us. All acoustic instruments are welcome!
Hi NAG members -
I'm excited to announce our next acoustic jam at Tobias Music in Downers Grove!
As usual, please plan on paying $3.00 when you arrive to join the session. Might be hard to make change, so exact amount would be a help.
And again - special thanks to John V. for hosting! We'll follow the same format as we did this past Saturday - doing a combination of a song circle and a little open mic opportunity for those interested.
Please plan on having a couple of songs ready to share with the rest of us if you are able. For those new to the group, we enjoy playing all styles of music. All skill levels, and any acoustic instrument is welcome. Chord sheets are always helpful. Also - you probably should have a capo handy, as well as a portable music stand.
I know it can be challenging for some to get out there and lead the group in a song, but I would encourage everyone to try and participate as best you can. In the end, it makes for a much stronger meet-up experience for everyone.
We're a very laid back, accepting group. Our main goals are just to have fun playing together, and enjoy connecting with other musicians in the area.

Please be sure to reach out to me if you are interested in hosting one of our upcoming jams. Unfortunately, I really can't offer enough opportunities to get together - without your support. But together - we can help create lots of diverse jams throughout the area to appeal to our growing group of musicians. Even if you are limited on space, we've had members check on availability at local libraries, churches etc. Just some food for thought. :)
And thank you to our official sponsor - Tobias Music - for letting us use your great space again! FYI - Tobias Music is showcasing "Wordless Live" featuring Lee Murdock - a celebration of acoustic instrumental guitar. The event is Saturday, April 20th at 8pm. Be sure to check it out!
Also - don't forget about Hootenanny House - another great sponsor of ours. Lots of great things going on there.
Finally - remember you can always stay connected to other guitar players in the area. Join us on Facebook! Search Naperville Acoustic Guitar Meet-up Group.
