This Sunday, June 8th from 2 pm until 5....
At The Black Dog, 227 West Front St. in Stirling.
The ‘Amazing Jam’! Even more amazing music...
This will be the Amazing Jam’s fifth Sunday afternoon at The Black Dog in Stirling. The space works: drinks and food are good and prices seem reasonable. We play there for about 3 hours. We are welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and restaurant. Our music is greatly appreciated; people always ask to know when we will return!
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon’s jam (June 8th) will probably be our last until September. Time is from 2 pm until 5.
The ‘Amazing Jam’ format is a ‘song circle’ with the lead changing from person to person among the group. When their turn comes around, everyone has the option to offer a DSCF1663tune or pass the privilege to their neighbour. Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc. some will choose to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and listen.
DSCF1676smIn all its incarnations (Madoc, Marmora, and now in Stirling) the Amazing Jam has had a thoroughly amazing character. A very large part of this is due to the fabulous core group of musicians (amazing characters, all of us....) who turn out time and again to bring it all together. We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends; for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s all unplugged and it’s all good! Guitar, bass, harmonica, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, fiddle, accordion, flute, celtic harp – the list goes on.
“There may be only 4 or 5 of us or maybe a whole room full of musicians. A place for ‘first-timers’ and experienced players alike. A good bunch of people playing all kinds of music together. People in their teens all the way through proto-geezers. Maybe even an DSCF1647sincipient-geriat or two....
“The blues does not rule. Any acoustic music from punk to polka!”
(Baritone sax and tuba set up in the parking lot....)
Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in Stirling.
