Hey Adam (aka Dr. Optigan) what other keyboards are you bringing? ;D

Not quite sure yet, but I'll probably be bringing at least one Casio, a Bee Gees Rhythm Machine, and if things work out well, a Korg Poly 800. I actually managed to find one of my own at a flea market a few months ago; several keys don't work, and I paid more than I would've paid for yours, but it's endless buckets of fun.  ;D

I'd like to thank Mr. Mike & the people who made our jam possible. If not for for them, we would not be able to make so much noise in one place at the same time!

I'd also like to thank Ben & Crew for making it possible to hear ourselves above the noise. They always go beyond the call of duty and provide us with great sound. They hauled all their equipment and spent lots of money for gas just to get us heard.

Also thanks to John for all his high tech wizardry to get us on the air.


Thanks to ALL of YOU!

It was a great time as always, and once again standing room only, at least at the front of the room. I think I counted 12 musicians, and I would not be surprised to know that I missed at least one or two.

Thanks to all the participants. Without you I would be sitting there listening to the sounds of silence. Remember - you all make the jam, I just try to make it more audible.

We had 6 microphones dedicated solely to feeding audio to the radio station this time, and all of the feedback I got was that there were a LOT of people listening on the radio. Although it caused a bit of confusion over which Mics the musicians should play into, it worked out very well. I specifically make an effort to ensure that all the players and instruments can be heard not only in the room but on the air, and I think this time the feed over to the radio station was the best yet.

Again, thanks all, and we're planning to see you all in the fall.

-Ben

Man, what a great jam that was, as always! ;D Thanks to everyone who played, watched, and listened. I had lots of fun mashing around with my goofy keyboards, and had a blast singing! Really need to get around to getting my gear tuned-up better for the next one of these shindigs, and hope Bri can find a way to make the next one.
