This group is for anyone interested in live music events in the Sacramento area, who love dancing, socializing and meeting new people.

We are requesting a first name and at least the first initial of your last name. We also need a fairly CLOSE UP PHOTO OF YOUR FACE. This is how the host recognizes you at an event, along with security reasons. We appreciate your understanding. Thanks!
Bay Area Drum Circle
San Jose, CA
NOTICE: I am REQUIRING all new members to supply a picture that shows their face, centered, without a mask or sunglasses, in their profile for this group. A low resolution picture or a full body picture where the face is tiny is not acceptable. This is so we can learn names of our fellow members and so I can more easily manage who attends events. (When you join a group, the picture that is used for the group is the same one that is in your top level meetup.com profile. After joining, the picture in other groups and in your top level meetup.com profile can be different. Unfortunately, you have to use the meetup.com website, not the app, to change a profile picture for a group. Here is a link to instructions - https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002878591-Changing-or-removing-a-profile-photo )
Normally, we meet and drum at various locations in the SF Bay Area - mostly in the South Bay and Peninsula, including one regularly scheduled drum circle and others that are not on a fixed schedule. We do everything in person, so if you don't live in the SF Bay Area, your request to join will be denied. Due to Covid-19, our schedule has changed significantly and we are limited to outdoor locations only. Meetup.com will let you know via email when new events are planned.
Our circles are mostly free form with possibly some light facilitation and opportunities to learn new rhythms. We don't do meditation or other rituals. We are all about having fun. <br>
Creating your meetup.com account and joining this group is free. You will only be asked to occasionally contribute a dollar to help with the meetup.com fee assessed to the organizer.
All experience levels welcome. If you are a beginner, you will learn by listening, watching, and asking questions. Most of the drumming that we do, does not require training. Some locations may be difficult or impossible for mobility impaired people.
Due to COVID-19, it’s best to bring your own drums or percussion instruments. We went through a period of absolutely no sharing. Now that restrictions have loosened a bit, if you want to loan something to one of your fellow drummers, that’s OK, if you accept the risk.
Oakland Live Music- Karaoke- Dancing 30+
Hello Music Enthusiasts! I'm putting this group together so that people that enjoy live music, dancing, and karaoke can find people to enjoy these things together with. This is not like other live music groups that posts an event and then the host makes no effort to actually meet up their members. I won't post just for the sake of posting, but for getting together with other members. Ideally, members that have attended at least one event can host their own event. It can be live music, dance, karaoke, a festival with music, their own jam session playing instruments, or whatever music related event they come up with. If there isn't much interest in that I am pretty good myself about posting regular events to keep the group going.
San Francisco EDM
San Francisco, CA
Calling all EDM lovers!
You've found one of the largest EDM meetups in the Bay Area. More than just going to shows, we're a community centered around electronic dance music.
Here's how it works:
A. We list as many EDM events going on in the Bay Area as possible. Some weeks may have 10+ events happening!
B. We pick 1-3 events per month to make official. Official meetups are "hosted", i.e. they will have a concrete place and time to meet before the show (like a pregame at a bar) and are perfect for meeting new people in the city. If you're not sure if an event is official or not, check the title or description of the event for the words "official" or "hosted", or leave a comment on the event page.
C. For any non-official (i.e. unhosted) events where our official organizers can't make it, we leave it up to you to be proactive. If you'd like to meet up with people, reach out in the comments section of the event and see if anyone else in interested!
D. We *highly* recommend our official meetup events (e.g. Dolores Park socials, barhopping, pre-games before big events) for meeting new people to go to shows with. From there, it's much easier to go to unhosted events and see familiar faces.
F. Interested in being an organizer? Some perks include free swag, community recognition, invites to organizer-only events and more! Still interested? Reach out to Jon G. and let us know.
P.S. Don't forget to join our community on Facebook too!

San Francisco Ukulele Rebellion!
San Francisco, CA
The Ukulele Rebellion has begun! Join us at our various monthly meetings (and other events).
We are an educational group, seeking to teach beginners and beyond to play the ukulele. Our primary songbooks are The Daily Ukulele (the Yellow Book) and The Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition (the Blue Book) published by Flea Market Music.
We also play some songs from chord/lyric sheets that can be downloaded (see below).
We ask for a $5 donation per meeting to pay for Meetup.com site maintenance and other expenses.
If you can print out your own copies of the "alternate" songs from the Files section of the group (Under "More" above), that would be fabulous! The songs for each meetup that have been requested (both new and old) are in a file with the meetup's date. The whole book is under "Rebellious Songbook." The Xmas songs are under "Rebellious Xmas Songs."
Thanks, and we hope to see you strumming along with us.
HARMONY WERKS Presents: The San Jose Pop Up Choir
San Jose, CA
Welcome, thanks for checking in.
Hello all, you can read below about who we are and what we have done in the past, but during this crisis we are all struggling to keep the music going and most importantly to find safe ways to do it. Things are very different and as singing is known to be a significant spreader of the CoronaVirus, we will only plan things that keep us all safe, from singing in your own car, virtual events and special outdoor session when available.
These are not normal times and while we all share a deep love of music, we need to find ways to keep our community active and most importantly safe.
Stay well, stay healthy and keep the music alive.
First off, this IS NOT a traditional choir, but to help answer questions you might have - check out our FAQ page for answers to some general questions.
So no auditions to join, no expectation that you need to read music or can actually carry a tune. In many ways this is a social group with music. A way to express yourself with a song.
This group is for those among us that like to sing, in the shower, on the road, in line at the store and in their own head during meetings. If you ever hummed or sang long to Lion King, The Greatest Showman, Newsies, Schoolhouse Rock, Hamilton, the theme to the Beverly Hillbillies or quite frankly any music that touches you, then this might be the perfect place for you.
NO, you do not have to sing well. YES, you do have to enjoy singing.
Just about any kind of song will work, but here is the kicker, it would be nice if you were also interested in the possibility of performing in public. From spontaneous concerts in downtown San Jose, to caroling during the holidays and more. We will start with practice, individual songs to karaoke tracks and acapella group sing, to solos, duos and themed sing for special projects.
Be great to hear your voice, come join in the fun.
On the other hand, you may not want to sing, just yet. Perhaps you are a great audience and interested in hearing music from every conceivable genre sung, and you are only interested in humming along or tapping your toes - yes, you are most welcomed as well.
Sometime, someday, we hope you might be encouraged to sing along.

Bay Area Blues Lovers
For anyone that wants to go out and hear live blues with a fun group of people in a wide range of venues across the Bay Area. Occasionally other music genres such as Rockabilly and New Orleans music will be posted.
Our events are combo of non-hosted and hosted events which is explained below:
Non-Hosted Events - Non-hosted events events can range from just FYIs to members about upcoming national touring headliner blues artists, special events (San Jose Jazz Festival for example) to weekly ongoing jams or gigs our Meetup members might be interested in that our meeting organizers can't attend all the time.
Meetup members can attend non-hosted events with other blues Meetup members and/or volunteer to be the main "meeter and greeter" for a non-hosted event.
Hosted Events - Meetup organizers will be there to meet and greet the Meetup members. Generally a sign or a flag will placed on a table/tables to help identify our Meetup group.
Minimums for Hosted Meetups
At times there are minimums for a hosted Meetup and this information will be posted.
More about our Meetup Group - Tips
Seating at Venues
Depending on the size of venue, the draw of the band or artist playing that evening and when you arrive can make it challenging to save or find seating together. If you choose to arrive after the suggested time at meetup - meetup organizers can't always guarantee there will be enough tables for everyone. We hope you understand.
Notes about small venues or places that fill up quickly are always noted in the Meetup description for a good reason --> seating *really* can run out/be limited (Little Lou's BBQ or the tables downstairs near the stage of Club Fox are good examples!)
Type of Blues Music
Everyone's tastes in blues music varies. To determine if an artist or group is someone you'd enjoy, visit related links such as YouTube (or Google the artist name) to get a sense of the music before you sign up or attend the particular Meetup. This will help you "find" the right Meetup to attend with our group.
Artists Choice of Music at Their Gigs
Please note the meeting organizers have no control over the music the group or artist plays at their gigs. If a blues group or blues artist at a Meetup chooses to throw some latin, jazz, funk, pop or instrumental tunes in the set they are playing that night -- that's the way it is! Live music - is just that --> it's live and subject to the moment.
Anyone that is a member can suggest a Meetup - feel free to do so and host a meeting yourself! This is a collaborative group effort!
There is NO CHARGE to belong to this Meetup. We always note cost/cover charge of an event / venue when possible.
For example -- if there was a Meetup scheduled at a venue that is charging $5 cover on Friday night. You need pay the $5 to the venue when you arrive. The information on cost to get into the venue would be stated in the Meetup invite posted to the group.
There are also times when it is necessary for you to purchase a ticket for the event directly from the venue before the Meet-up (such as Yoshi's or SF Jazz Center). In those cases, information will be provided to you within the event announcement itself.
Blues bands who want to list gigs
Blues Bands are welcome to post gigs as Meetup events.
Meetup organizers will post your event in the DISCUSSIONS page under NON-HOSTED events with a link to your website.
We do ask that bands at least announce the Meetup at their gig and announce a welcome to the Meetup members so they can find each other/sit with each other to enjoy your show.
Any band or musician just posting gigs and not mentioning the Meetup at all or abusing the Meetup group in any way will be banned/their information removed from this group.
Thanks! We look forward to enjoying some great times and blues music with YOU!

San Jose Jam Sessions Meetup
San Jose, CA
****On 8/7/21 - A Little Bit oF This And That Jam ****
• A group to have fun, centered around music, and the people behind the music.
• A community based gathering for musicians of all types and levels, as well as music lovers who want to collaborate.
• A creative space for musicians to come together to learn, share, and let your musical desires flow.
• We will have elements for all levels of musicians (beginners, intermediate, advanced, casual players, etc.)
• A space to learn and work on songs, whether they are covers or originals.
• A space to explore and branch out into new musical directions; to explore new tastes.
• An environment to enhance proficiency in our individual playing, but as important is playing music with others.
• A place to display your passion through musical conversations
• A place to express yourself musically
✮ Collaborate....I see the meetup as a place to share all things musical and this platform enables diverse groups of people to collaborate in new and fun ways. This also can be a great place to share ideas, create new spaces and be… Creative. </P>
✮ Forums.... I’ve also started a new forum within the group to share ideas and collaborate more effectively. I ’ve turned on the messaging (Moderated for now) so members can reach out to each other and share ideas. </p>
✮ Things I’ve observed as Jammers…We jam but only sorta…. Jamming is fun but it’s somewhat chaotic if we don't have focus and structure. It's usually helpful if a musical genre and even song list is created and shared beforehand. It's also important to recognize that not all players are at the same level of ability or comfortable playing with other folks. </P>
✮ So, I've got some ideas I’ve working on: </p>
❍ Joe's Beginner Jam - Easy going space where everybody gets to play </p>
❍ Open Mic Team - I want to assemble an open mic group that plays out </p>
❍ Blues for Beginners </p>
❍ Acoustic Music </p>
❍ Vocals, Harmonies and more </p>
❍ Song writing gatherings </p>
Yours in Music,

Girls Rock! Meetup
San Francisco, CA
Girls Rock! This is a group for anyone that wants to support girls and women throughout the Bay Area and beyond who perform live music. Solo or in a band, whether they sing or play an instrument as long as they rock!! To be clear, rock means yes, rock music. However, if they perform "any" kind of music that is amazing, touches people and creates community, then it also rocks! There are so many talented female musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area. I happen to be one of them, that's why I started this group.
If you're a Girl who Rocks! get in touch with me about your upcoming events. Let's support our Girls who Rock and have some fun! :-)
My name is Groovy Judy. I'm a singer-songwriter and rippin' guitarist inspired by Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and Sly & The Family Stone. I perform my upbeat original music mixed with hits from the 60s to today all around the Bay Area with my band and as a solo artist. You can find out more about me at http://www.groovyjudy.com
Bay Area Live Band Karaoke - Singers And Musicians Welcome
Welcome to karaoke with acoustic instruments! It's dealer's choice (singers'), just like regular karaoke, but musicians may do covers also. We also tend to imbibe and eat food. It's just a good time, in the sun, with music.
ADDRESS: The address, in Hayward, is posted in the 'Comments' section for each event
VENUE: In good weather, we're outside on a covered porch, but can move indoors if it gets cold or rains.
PARKING: You can park in the driveway, which is large.
SINGERS: Since we have to improvise or read chords/notes, popular songs are best - something we're likely to have heard. You can jump on the WiFi and grab lyrics for your phone.
MUSICIANS: Bring your instrument and a way to get online and find chords/tab (laptop, tablet, smart phone, etc.).
AUDIENCE: You're welcome to enjoy. A folding/camping chair is recommended.
ALL: You have the option to bring food or something to drink. This is sort of a pot luck, also, with simple bar snacks and basic grillable food (brats, burgers, what have you). I have a grill. We're alcohol and 420 friendly.
ON POLITICS AND THE 'RONA: We try to avoid discussing politics, which can leave some people feeling unwelcome. Unfortunately, the handling of the virus has become a proxy space for politics. If you don't feel safe without a mask or protective accoutrements that disrupt singing, seeing expressions, or otherwise making a human connection with others, you probably should not join us until the 'all clear' is given. We're all adults, and music + masks, or cookouts + disruptive distancing, are not good bedfellows. Hand sanitizer is fine, and I have different (washable) pop filters for mics.
Tuesday Night Music Jamming Meetup -LA
Los Angeles, CA
We are currently not accepting any new members due to Covid-19. To attend a Jam Session, you MUST provide your confirmation card of full vaccination, with the final shot no earlier than 2 weeks before attending. This is a "Jam Club" for experienced players/singers wherein the goal is to have fun jamming out to Classic Rock, Current Rock, Pop, Blues, Folk, etc. If you have played in a band (F/T of P/T) for at least 5-10 years, played numerous gigs, and this may or not be your main profession, this may be for you. We are looking for people who sing, (Lead or Harmony) play an instruments such as Bass, Drums, Percussion, Horns, Sax, Guitar, Keys, Violin, etc., This is NOT for newer players, but for people who know how to work in the dynamics of a band setting. Everyones input and contribution to a song, and song suggestions, will be welcome and encouraged in order to make music that WE create, not attempt to copy, a particular version of a song. It will be flexible that way, with songs being done according to what the vocalists can do, and the musicians can play. Therefore creativity and fun are the goals. Maybe we all end up re-arranging the song altogether, maybe we play it the way it was recorded. Overall, the idea is to have a fun, and creative musical jam while creating a musical network, plus create acquaintances and friends, that can play well, form projects or bands or duets, just jam, whatever. We currently have seven identical binders of music with hundreds of songs each so we can all be playing off the same page. Session fee is $20.00 per person.
South Bay House Concerts - SF2SJ music connect
Los Altos, CA
If you build it they will come…a South Bay network of house concert and small live music venues, and all us fans who love the up close and personal music experience. This site is for music lovers of all genres to check out what's happening on the San Francisco peninsula down to San Jose. The artist talent pool is amazing. Let's build the audience!
Never been to a house concert? You're in for a treat! Defined as "true listening environments", they are typically small gatherings in the privacy of a home or small stage. Usually 30-50 people. Occasionally, like if someone has a super cool back yard, it's easy to fit in more. Every host runs things a bit different. Typically, seating is provided. But you may be asked to bring a chair or a blanket. Typically it's BYOWhatever. But, there might be social time and/or a potluck.
Guests are asked to be very respectful of the house. Stick to the concert area, be clean and no smoking.
The artist reflects the flavor of the host, from classical to singer songwriter. Don't' worry if there are just a couple rsvp's. Most experienced hosts have cultivated a mailing list. This site is an adjunct to that and to help new house concert providers get started by establishing a shared pool of fans. The more house concert venues, the more fans, the more artists who get to share their amazing talents.
Want to become a host? It really is easy. But please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Here are a couple resources: http://www.americansongwriter.com/2014/02/songwriter-u-make-real-money-donation-based-house-concerts/ http://www.concertsinyourhome.com/CIYH_HouseConcertGuidex.pdf
PLEASE NOTE!!!! Seating is limited. You are not allowed to rsvp yes and then not show. No shows are a big deal. Attendance is taken. The reputation of this meet up will be one of dependability, as if you paid for your ticket in advance.
LA Music Connections
Los Angeles, CA
This is an opportunity for musicians, singers, and songwriters in Los Angeles to connect! We will host virtual and live events to help you establish and flourish a community for the creative scene.

Peninsula Ukulele Group PUGs
San Carlos, CA
We are a Meetup.com group based in Belmont, CA (**Update: all online during COVID-19**). We meet monthly to play a set of about 20-25 songs over a two-hour session from 6-8 pm on the third Wednesday each month in Belmont, and one Saturday a month in Woodside (check our Meetup site for exact dates). Our usual meeting places are the Belmont Public Library, 1110 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA, and Woodside Library. We play a wide range of popular music and welcome players of any level to come to join us. There is no pressure to come every month or for you to feel nervous about playing with our members. We believe that sharing music should be collaborative, fun and instructional. We are a welcoming group and want to share our love of music with all comers.
Each month, a group leader selects the songs we play. Those song selections usually are based around a common theme. For each Meetup, a link to the song chord sheets are posted on our Meetup site for you to download to a computer or tablet or just print hard copies. At the meeting our group leader will lead us to play each song and take extra time to look a special riffs, strums and chord changes. We take one break halfway through and have some refreshments and have a little time to get to know each other. We then finish our set.
We play songs from easy to advanced to give challenges to all players. We use songs from a number of different genres. It’s our goal to help everyone learn to play the ukulele and sing the popular songs from the early 1900’s to the present.
So, please bring your ukulele, tuner, and this month’s music. PUG takes donations each month to support the costs of our Meetup account. You and anyone you want to bring along are welcome. We always have a good time!
Keep on strummin'
