Ham Jammers
« on: September 16, 2018, 04:16:01 AM »
FAIR WARNING, and hopefully enough advance notice to find an alternate solution ..

I do not think I'm going to be able to provide the sound system for the upcoming NEAR-Fest XXIV jam session due to some unforseen circumstances. I have some commitments where it's likely I may not be able to be there at least part of Friday night. First one I've missed in...9 years...since back in the days of the WOK-Fi..

My apologies, hopefully other arrangements can be be made.

Ben,
No apologies are needed and thanks for your support all these years. We have never been able to blame the sound guy on those occasions when we did not sound great.

Is anyone else planning to attend? Does anyone else have a small PA? I can bring an extra guitar amp if it will help.

Bummer, Ben. :(

I'll probably be coming to the jam as (un)usual with some oddball keyboard instruments in tow, though I don't really have anything in the way of PA gear (or experience running sound in general).  Hopefully, we'll be able to figure something out. See ya's there!

I plan to be there and will bring an extra mike stand and 2 extra microphones. I should also have some extra cables.

Ok, HamJammers....

I have a PA packed. It's enough for the Electronic drum kit and a couple microphones. I've got two boom stands & mics.
And of coarse the Drum kit.

Bring a small amp for your Keyboard setups guys!

ok, see you all soon!

I'm sorry. I'm sorry if at any time I had a sour face. It wasn't because of anyone there. I had a tooth break a few days before the fest and had it filled and it still gives me some trouble. I know someone took pictures and they seemed irritated at my sour face but I assure you it wasn't aimed at you.
   It was a good jam session and it really picked up when more people came to jam.  I will make it a goal to learn some songs and get more practice in. Even if its only a few minutes a day. I can't believe i forgot the words to ghost riders in the sky. Perhaps we could put out a list of 5 songs to practice a few months before the next fest.

Wow, what a jam! Thanks to everybody who was there or tried to make it, as always. Hope my keyboard playing and singing didn't annoy people too much. ;) Had a great time at the show in spite of the weather. Can't wait for the next one!  :)

As for the practice idea, that might not be a bad idea. Bry tried holding practice sessions in his garage a few times, but few attended. Hopefully, we can figure something out.
