What we're about

All abilities are welcome!

This meetup is aiming to build a relaxed, friendly group of people who love music, whatever standard you are or whether you just want to join for the chat and have a listen. We'll start online and get back to the real world when we can with some jamming sessions, social outings to open mic nights, gigs and music events.

Weekly zoom catchup

Online event

This is our weekly check-in, for new people to say hi, anyone to share any music they're working on or check in with any questions or updates.

It'll also be a chance for those going to that week's jam (currently online on JamKazam) to agree which songs they're going to work on (and in which key!). If we have more than one room's worth of jammers, we'll work out who's going where too.

This is a good chance to get yourself added in to the groups' WhatsApp too if you're keen.

Everyone is welcome, even if just to listen in or stop by for 5 mins to say hello. This is a lovely friendly group and we all remember how embarrassing it is to turn on your zoom camera to a new group for the first time!

Online event

If you're interested in participating you will need to download the JamKazam app to your computer - see link below. You will also need some sort of audio interface to plug your instrument/microphone into a computer and a set of headphones at a push you can use the computer mic but it will sound a bit ropey - headphones are a must. You will also need to have a wired internet connection (not wireless!).

To give you a bit of background here are a few useful links:

There are quite a few other videos on You Tube about setting up your instruments but they are all very old and, as you can imagine, the platform has seen a huge amount of change/development over the last 9 months. Once you start the app there is a menu system that takes you through the set up but if anyone has problems I'm very happy to jump on a session and help before the event.
