Jammers, Players, Pickers, Singers and Wailers:
I'd like to get your 2 cents on how to conduct future jams.
The last one I believe was a great success but there is room for improvement.
We were blessed with getting a sound man (Ben along with Andrea and Julie) who not only provided sound but all the equipment and did all the setup/breakdown!!
I'd like to get as many players as possible to join us.
This includes the non electric players, beat poets, A cappella, rappers, minimalists and stray cats.
I don't know about you but I can stand to learn from someone playing a different style or musical taste.
I've been asking some of the players from past jams for input, but I also need input from those that would like to play but didn't because of what ever reason: song choices, electric VS acoustic, skill level, personnel, lack of equipment.
Please stand up and be heard. If you don't speak up you can't be counted!
Should we have separate sets for acoustic, pre arranged songs, jams, blues, original music??
Or it that too much structure?
Should we start the jam earlier to accommodate different/more interests?
Is anyone interested in getting together mid winter to work on some songs to play at the next fest?
Lets hear your ideas.
I figure I should be able to lay the coming jam by mid. January.
This will give everyone time to get acquainted with what's going to happen and how.
But.. I need to hear from you! If I don't get feedback, the jam format will probably remain as is.
And if thats the case, there is a no-bitch policy.

See you in the Spring,
