Title: 2015 Spring Ham Jam Festivous!
Post by: N1ERF on April 05, 2015, 12:31:33 AM

Woot!

Well we are just under a month now for the 2015 Spring Ham Jam Festivous.

ALL musicians are encouraged to participate and have fun!

If you would like to participate, just show up with your instrument of choice, even if it's a nose flute or harmonic armpit modulation flapper...   ;D




Helpful suggestions and common courtesy things for making the event run smooth:








Be there, or be square!

We will be there as usual. Hoping it stops snowing and warms up!

I'll be there as usual, and I'll try and bring the Big Red Farfisa with me once again, after letting it sit the last one out (nothing cuts through the sonic guitar maelstrom quite like it!). I'll be bringing a few other toys as well, of course. I'll also be able to sing as usual; hopefully, we'll get to do Black Sabbath - Paranoid this time around!

Awesome!
I will bring the nose flute, if I can get the MIDI interface working. I did get a shiny new Gibson. Maybe I'll bring it as a backup, but nothing compares to the tone of a good nose flute.
See you all there!

I'm planning on being there with a Kurzweil K2VX synth in tow :)

I know how to play the drums too! :)

I wanted to thank everyone who participated in the Ham Jam this season and all the new individuals who came and participated. That's ALWAYS a good thing. I look forward to having you all come to next seasons Ham Jam.

I also wanted to thank all the individuals who continue to allow the musicians to come and play. Thanks to Mr. Mike, the volunteers and board members of the Near Fest organization. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them.

Also thank you to our Very Sound Guy, Ben. Thanks for the awesome stuff you do to keep the audio flowing.

Boy, that was fun! Thanks to everyone who played along with/put up with my keyboard 'playing', as well as my 'singing'. Hopefully, we'll get to play Paranoid at The Next Jamô............
