Ham Jam
« on: September 21, 2023, 09:29:29 PM »
The "Ham Jam" is just a little extra fun to have at Near-Fest.
Happening Friday night! At Near-fest In Deerfield, NH!
Ham Jam is an "Open to all" get together.
Do you play an Instrument or sing?
Or Just come and listen...
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!
Bill M! Will be bringing his electronic drum kit . We usually have a few drummers and take turns playing. If you're a drummer and would like to play, just ask.
I will be bringing a PA! (For Electronic drums & a Couple few Mics)
Please bring your SMALL Amp for your instruments. No volume battles Please!
For first timers... Thanks to the Mr. Phil & Near-fest 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 8:30pm Friday! (8pm Setup Drums & PA)
Any question or comments post here!
Hope to see you all for another great Near-Fest!

Awesome! Great poster Rick.
I am in. Let's Rawk.

Possibly off topic - I am finally ready to part with some of my "better" musical stuff. My car space is limited and I don't want to subject some of this gear to unnecessary abuse. If you might be interested in any of the following please let me know by private email at jtgorsky@yahoo.com. I will be happy to send photos or speak with you by phone. I will need to get pretty close to the asking price so please no really lowball offers on these items. No obligation. I just dont want to drag these around if there is no interest.

-Late 70's Fender Deluxe Reverb. Real deal handwired Fender. Not a PCB reissue. Good "player" condition. Sounds exactly like you would expect.  $1200 firm.

-1965 Ampeg Jet J12. 15W. Original, not reissue. Sounds very cool and has a nice early breaup. EC. $400.

-Early 80's Fender Super 60. US made all tube 60W combo. Immaculate condition. It does the classic loud Fender clean tone very well. $350.

-Early 80's Dean Markley CD-60. 60W all tube combo. Original, not reissue.  Any tone you want is here. VGC, $325.

-Fender Blues Jr. 15W tube combo. I brought this to the last jam. It sounded great when other people played through it! Not too heavy, not too loud. Excellent condition. $350.

-Gibson custom shop ES-139. Black semi-hollowbody single cutaway guitar. Comes with original Gibson gig bag and certificate of authenticity. $1100.

-Fender B-Bender Telecaster. 1995. Very unique American standard Telecaster with a factory installed Parsons-Green B bender. Immaculate condition. $1400.

Possibly more to follow, if I don't get yelled at. See everyone soon!

hey all, I 'think' I'll be coming. Just working out a few logistics...Jersey is a haul from Deerfield. If so, I've got a couple mikes with stands I can toss in along with my keyboard stuff and cajon stool-lol!

I'll be bringing the drum set, of course.  Looks like Scott and Raj will be coming this time as well.

It will be fun as usual.

Great, I'm glad more people are chiming in. It will be nice to have an actual real bass player again.
I am expecting to be in the camping area Thursday night so if anyone wants to hang out or jam feel free.
I did not get any bites on the high dollar items that I posted earlier so I will be bringing some other items at more ham friendly prices, so bring cash! I will have a couple basses, some smaller tube amps and probably a guitar or two, as well as some radio boat anchors.
If any other equipment is needed for the jam, let me know.
Will we be in the same building this time?

Hi Everyone! PA is packed and ready!
Yes, as far as I know we are in the same building as last May.
Please see attachment for building location.
Only thing I can think of that we may be in need of is some lighting.
In this building it's either too dark or too bright & nothing in between. LOL
Preferably LED DJ or party lights. If you got anything like that bring it along!
I got one I'm bringing.

Ok everyone have a safe trip. C Ya Soon!
