What we're about

Hello all. My name is Keith and I am pleased and excited to begin hosting a Rock and Roll Jam Session meetup group in the South Brunswick area. It will be focused on attracting other local musicians who are interested in getting together for some informal jam sessions with the potential for developing into something more serious. This could turn into a great adventure.

A little about me. I am a baby boomer old rocker who has been playing guitar on and off since I was 13. I play mostly classic rock but would love to explore some jazz or fusion. I am currently with a new band 'Across the Tracks' and I am hosting an open mic night at Garvey's in Monroe Township every Wednesday night which is a great extension for this meetup group giving everyone a chance to perform in front of a live open mic audience. Please help support live music.

I rent a rehearsal studio in the South Brunswick area which we can use for some informal jam sessions.

The hope is to get a nice participation where we can create small groups of various musicians with like minded tastes, put together a set list and then schedule some informal jam sessions.

If this sounds interesting to you, please respond and let's get this thing going. Age doesn't matter, nor does skill level matter. we are all young at heart and the goal is to keep live music 'alive'.

Long live Rock and Roll.
