What are your top two (or three) venues for Blues in the Valley of the Sun? What do you like about each, e.g. sound system, acoustics, service, location, parking, overall ambiance, etc. Non responsive (N/A type answers) will not be approved.

Smokey's Mesa (Gilbert and Main) on Tuesdays El Dorado (McDowell, just west of the 101 at 87th St) on Wednesdays

What if anything, could be improved about Blues venues in the Valley? (Please no specific names, just general observations that might be helpful to all venue owners) Non responsive (N/A type answers) will not be approved.

In order to give everyone a fair swing at playing, at the jams, one, two, three songs you're out.... There is a tactic used by some players (who seem to be taken with their own celebrity) where they fill out the player list with every instrument that they play, and expect to be called up for three songs on each of them. Please guys, you're not making any friends.

Are you interested in actively supporting or facilitating events in any ways? Such activities might include welcoming members at meetups.... maintaining a sign-in list at major events... answering questions from new members... or others.

Sure... I'll be your greeter and signer-upper

Introduction

I've been in music, one way or another - student, pro, semi-pro - just about all my life. Guitar player (mainly) and have played in blues bands both sides of the Atlantic. Love to play. Love to listen (although it makes me want to play!)

What Simon PC F. is saying about this Meetup Group

This group is maturing nicely. I've met some great new friends, and networked with some fine musicians since joining. Basically this is just one good time after another!
