After having a heart attack in May, I think it's time I go to this one.
It's just a matter of time when I won't have a choice.

I dare you to give me new stuff to learn, that you'll actually play at the jam.

Things have been crazy around here as (un)usual, but I'm still planning to go if things work out. Have some new toys to haul along with the Big Red Farfisa, so it should be interesting to see how things shape up. Should be fun!  :)

Good morning Ham Jammers! Rick here, I had a conversation with Ben yesterday.
He will be bringing his PA! Of coarse I will bring the Electronic drum kit!
I will bring along my folder of lyric/chord sheets!
Somewhere I have a list of songs that we have played in the past.
I will find it and post it here ASAP, if possible!
All are welcome to come up and play!

Ok, Attached file is a list of some of the songs we Jammed in the past (for reference). Depending on which Jammers attend, we may play some of these again...
If you have a song or two you'd like to do post it here.
Keep in mind we have all different skill levels. So if possible bring a lyric & chord sheet for your song(s).
Remember the Ham Jam is all about Fun not perfection.

Drummers..... We have an electronic drum kit all are welcome to play. We usually have a few drummers and take turns playing.
If your a drummer and would like to play just ask.

Ben is bringing his awesome PA!

For first timers... Thanks to Mr. Mike & Team we have a nice warm building with plenty of seating for Jammers and audience.
So even if you don't play come join us!
Usually we start around 8:00pm friday!
Any question or comments post here!
Hope to see you all for another great NearFest!

I will need to miss this one so I can pick up the XYK in Newark Friday - yuck.

John, I hope you are doing well - jam on.

Rick, thanks for all you do. The song list is a good idea.

See you all in the spring.

Wow, what an excellent jam! ;D Thanks to everyone who made it in spite of the nasty weather forecasts, and to everyone who put up with my keyboard playing and singing. Can't wait for the next one!

Yeah that was a really great jam and several people commented to me the next day how much they enjoyed it, plus it was neat having some newcomers and making sure they got their turn on stage!  Great job everyone!

I did want to thank the new individuals that were brave enough to come up and play.

Assuming you have access to this site, our hope is that you are able to return next season and keep us musically challenged.
I was certainly working out of my comfort zone.

As usual, all are welcomed.

The Adam & The Ants saying goes: Don't Be Square (Be There)

Thanks for being there!
