I know of at least 4 Harmonicalessons.com regulars who are coming to the jam. Several of you have expressed fear at getting up in front of others and jamming. We've made a couple of changes which should put you at ease and will hopefully bring more of you guys out of the woodwork.
First of Jon Gindick will be opening the jam with an introduction to jamming seminar for some of the newer players. Bring your diatonic in the key of C. Jam with Jon in private for a while, then come back out and join the group.
This seminar is totally free of charge!
We've also discussed sending a group of newer players up to jam together after the seminar. Kind of a moral support thing. Keep in mind there is no pressure to get up and play, go up and jam only if you want to.
If not, just attend the seminar and then come out and enjoy the music.
Jon is driving almost 2 hours each way to put this seminar on so it's important we have a good turn out.
Spread the word and bring your family and friends. For those who have not heard, details of the jam are below.
Southern California harp jam scheduled for Saturday January 18th from 2:00 -
6:00 pm at Tijuanas Long Bar Restaurant 14988 Sand Canyon Ave Irvine CA
92618. Conveniently located right off the 5 and 405 Fwys. The music will be
provided by Iron Man Mike Curtis and is for harp players of ALL Skill
This is a great opportunity to get out and play in a supportive environment
or just come out and listen and rub shoulders with other harmonica players.
The owner of Tijuanas is going to let us take over his bar area which is
huge so volume and space won't be a problem. Bring your, girlfriends,
wives, and friends. There will be plenty of gear there but feel free to
bring your own rig.
So far we have people traveling as far as San Diego and Pasadena so don't
let a little travel time hold you back. There is a hotel adjacent to the
restaurant that books rooms for only $79.00 per night if you want to do an
all nighter. Mark your calendars and make it a point to come out. I think
it's time we get an active harmonica club going in the LA area and this is a
good place to start. Email me of list if you can make it.
