  • @Brocco - We have family in Bristol, so it seemed remiss not to Ian. Yes, it will be good to catch up and Leicester has some good new songs on the list.

    Ok, I’ll join in with this. I could even contribute some more distinctly average bass playing if that’d be helpful.

    @mart, great to have you onboard. There is usually plenty of scope at these events to have a go at most things, so am sure you will have the opportunity to play some bass if you would like to. 

    All - please look out for more communication in the New Year.

    This looks like being my nearest FB event.  Could someone explain the basic setup - or point me to a link.  Do we just turn up? What do we bring? Do we know in advance what we might be playing?  Does everyone stay for the duration? etc etc

    Judging by the opening post of this Discussion, @Brocco and @fandango are the people who may be able to enlighten you. 

    Judging by the second post, nobody who has expressed an interest in attending has pre-paid the necessary £27 fee. 

    Debate about possible material to be performed appeared to peter out last October. 

    Thread starter and former-organiser, Bridgehouse, got royally pissed off with being taken for granted in early December and absented himself. (I may have contributed to this but have been too wrapped up in my own problems to notice until this week.) 

    The foundation for events such as this are a good drummer and bass guitarist. I am uncertain about who amongst the Confirmed Attendees are bassists and would have the time, patience or inclination to learn the proper bass lines for whatever songs end up on the agreed play list. Less experienced attendees will probably be depending on the jam session performances conforming fairly closely to the famous recorded versions of the material in question.

    Without Bridgehouse (or somebody very like him), the entire edifice is in danger of collapse.

    The event is in June 2019, and was announced 10 months in advance, to give everyone plenty of notice.

    We haven’t sorted payment provision yet.

    As for song choice, we never really got this started, but once someone has paid they would be able to suggest their three songs. We would start a separate thread for that. It’s a bit premature to be talking songs without having paid.

    I agree that a drummer and bass are key, and appreciate the greater challenge is finding a bass player/players. 

    However, both @brocco and I would like to see/hear far more interest in this Bristol jam now that we’re into 2019.

    And we would like others to step up and help out with organisation, please. It would make the jam better.

    @uncledick - these events combine an agreed running order in a live room based on a track list agreed by those who are participating songs with onformal opportunities to jam informally in other rooms. There is usually no difficulty in finding willing bass players or attracting a (paid) drummer. I have found these events to be friendly and supportive, and @fandango and I remain keen to see this event happen. Hope you decde to join us!

    Put my name down, sounds great. It's four hours away but I can stay with my bro in Cardiff. Not jammed for many years, put me in the lack of experience category!
