Welcome to the Seattle Area Jazz Musicians meetup! We are amateur players of all levels and experience-- some are classical players getting into jazz, some are casual players who haven't hit the stage yet, and others have been playing out but don't do it as their first job. Whatever the situation, we all want to play with other musicians.
The meetup was put together by Steve Jones (Bellevue), but it's member-run-- it's up to you to create events, asking other musicians to play somewhere. If you haven't played with others before, it can be hard to get started, but there is no time like the present to get started. Just create an event on this meetup, describe what you want to do, and others will definitely sign up. You can limit it to just a few, or open it up to as many as you want to come.
One thing though-- Every post on this site invites all members to join you in playing jazz, not just listening. So if you are a band and you post on this site, be warned, you're giving people permission to join you at your gig! You can still limit types of instruments and the size of the group, but you can't just post your concerts here-- use The Seattle Jazz Scene meet up for that.
Members span a greater Seattle area-- Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Bainbridge, Tacoma, Everett, and surrounding areas. Folks are willing to travel!
If you have a question about how to get started, send email to Steve Jones by visiting his profile. Have fun!
