Please note these new rules:
1. No personal guitar amps (but personal effects are OK). All guitars go through the PA (we've got direct boxes) and bass guitars go through our resident bass amp.
2. If you have an instrument (other than vocal cords) without a pickup, bringing your own mic (and stand) is encouraged. Otherwise, we'll do our best to accommodate you, but our mics are mostly reserved for singing.
3. Old rule reminder: Maximum of 3 guitar players at a time!
Thank you for your attention. Now, we return you to our regularly scheduled blurb:
If you're an engineering geek kinda person and play an instrument or sing, come join us for an evening of music making!
We've got mics for singers, an electronic drum kit, a keyboard, a PA, and a bass amp. Beyond that, bring anything with a 1/4" or XLR connector and we'll plug you in.
We play just about anything but tend to play songs that everybody knows (ie, pop and rock hits released sometime in the last 50 years or so). Songs are selected on-the-fly each night and we project the chords and lyrics on a big screen.
At any given time, we'll have a couple of guitars, bass, drums, keyboard (as well as violin, horns or whatever happens to show up) playing and a few folks singing. We rely on players to yield after a few songs to give others a chance.
It's a geek jam so exotic electronic and home-built instruments are definitely welcome!
