Great show, as always! Thanks to everyone who put up with my keyboard playing, as well as my vocals! Been dealing with a bit of a cold as of late, so I wasn't quite up to my usual range (which is why I was delayed on starting with Hotel California until I was sure I could manage the higher notes). Someone is supposed to be sending me a CD of some videos he took, so hopefully I'll be able to figure out how to post them whenever they arrive. Can't wait for the next one!  ;D

I just want to say thanks to all in attendance; both players and audience.
I thought John D. did a fantastic job pulling it together and awesome guitar chops on "All right Now"
Everyone played well and gave support to the other players as well.
I do feel bad for the 2 accordion players as we didn't know their repertoire. In the future please ask for stage time.
We would be happy take a break and welcome all types of music. You might be surprised who offers to come back up and support your efforts.
I did record the event and will try to edit out the babble and eq it over the weekend. It's guitar heavy; Sorry about that but I put the recorder at my feet and it was close to the guitar amps.

I'm still working on the garage/band practice space. Should be done in a few weeks. I'll send out email to locals in the hopes we can jam/properly learn some material.

I can't wait till spring.
Stay warm and dry my friends.

The only thing to fear is fear itself.....and crazy bat-shit people. We should really fear crazy bat-shit people.

Hi Jammers,

Ok now don't shoot me if it's not how you thought it went.
Disclaimer: I didn't have time to mount the recorder on the ceiling so it's very guitar heavy and not very clear (which to some players might be a God send)
I edited out most of the gab and did a little tweak to the eq. It's as good as it gets.
The point here is "these are of the songs we usually play. If you want it to come out better then I suggest you learn and practice them"
If you'd like to download the entire jam here it is:

Be warned. It's a 267mb file.
