What we're about

Jam band that meets on 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month in South Orange, NJ studio to jam on 60's and 70's Rock, Blues, Country and Motown covers!

We also will be meeting on other days, and focus on other music styles - see upcoming meetup dates!

This is "just for fun" jam for players of various levels - singers, guitar players, bass and drummers are welcome. We have TAB's of music, and studio has full drum kit, guitar and bass amps, keyboards and PA.

Jams are 1st and 3rd Thursdays of month from 8:00pm-11:00pm:

Sound Underground Studio
81 2nd St. (Near Entrance – below “Moods in Hair” Beauty Parlor)
South Orange 07079

Studio Size and #'s Per Meetup!

Unlike some places in NYC with multiple studios, we have only one room, that accommodate: 3 guitars, 1 bass, 1 drummer, 1 keyboard player, + up to two backup singers + other instrumentalist (sax, congos etc).

For this reason, we are limiting new meetups to a maximum of 10 people, and are asking all to RSVP and pay the proposed $12 contribution up front front.

RSVP and Payment

Given the limits on space, we have decided to ask all members to RSVP for future meetups and make the $12 donation payment up front to hold your spot - this seems like the most fair way to ensure that we don't have no-shows and that have good and fun jams for all!

First Come/First Serve for Drums/Bass and Keys!

As our studio only has one of each, first person to RSVP for a jam who plays these instruments is the one for that session!

Please Fill Out Profile Forms

This is really important and helps us all get to know each other, the music we want to jam to etc.

Send Suggestions!

This is a new meetup that attempts to use this platform and the space at Sound Underground studio provide a space for jams like this in the Maplewood/South Orange area - all suggestions and help are welcome! :)

There is a great YouTube channel where the Beatle harmonies are broken down. The link below is a sample, but check out the videos on how to sing Beatles harmonies. At the very least, I hope the video give you an added appreciation of the Beatles singing. https://youtu.be/sSnIHIcGCNM
