    BYO All Hands Jam

    We have five great sets for the All Hands Jam!  To make sure we have time for as many people to play as possible, we are not taking requests for additional sets. Those that requested time for a set but did not get on the list will be get first consideration for set times in the next All Hands Jam. 

    We do though, have room in the schedule for some Open Jam Time.  During the Open Jam sessions, we will be using the signup sheet (click here) to help coordinate what songs we play and who plays on them.  If you see a song on the list that you would like to play, put your name in.  Also, contact a couple of other Busicians that you would like to play that song with so that they can sign up also. 

    Stay tuned to your email for the next message about the this month's Jam.  We'll be providing more info on the schedule for the Open Jam portions of the evening.

    BYO Flash Jam for Charity   

    BYO Members, join this BYO Flash Jam on Saturday April 29  from 9:30 am to 12:30.  Busicians will gather at Pioneer Ridge Retirement Center to play music for residents of this facility. Please sign up in advance so we will know how many are coming. BYO Member Tim Hazzard has arranged for this opportunity where he has a relative in residence. To make this activity accessible to all of our members we have the most recent Version of our BYO Songbook (download below). We will select songs from this book so all of our members will have an opportunity to learn the songs in advance.

    This will be primarily an acoustic affair, perfect for stringed instruments, although if you want to bring a bass or keyboard with a small amp that is encouraged. We welcome percussionists to bring small instruments such as bongos, cajon, shakers, anything relatively portable and not too loud (be creative). 

    Our audience will average 85 years old so you will see some music in the songbook that is chosen with that in mind. We definitely need vocalists for lead and harmony in addition to playing our instruments. The Village at Stonebridge is very excited to have our BYO Flash Jam at their location.
