Hey, you guys, this is George from Jam Oasis--I wanted to let you know how grateful I am.  The the music and vibes have been fantastic at the Jam Oasis jams, and the your generous donations (especially those recurring ones!) have put us on more solid footing.

 

We are going to be able to keep jamming at least through July, thanks to you!!!  Keep it up, stick with us and that footing will get more and more solid.


That's all for now. Keep on JAMMIN'!!

Instead of just leaping into the old songbook as we do at the other MCCM Monday jams, we’re giving top priority to your latest explorations:

 

-Original songs

-Songs you’ve worked out

-Musical things you’ve been working on

 

If you plan to lead a tune or two or three, it would be extra cool if you’d bring charts so folks can play along.

 

Even if you aren’t planning to lead a tune, bring your instrument as always, because it’s MCCM, isn’t it? And for this showcase, the audience can play along without disturbing the performer!!

 

And because we all need to relax, feel free to just bring a smile and open ears.

 

HOORAY FOR THE INTERNET!!

 

See y’all then!!!

FREE. Suggested donation: $10.

-Original songs
-Covers that you’ve made into your own

Please note: This event was previously a jam. Starting in April we are transitioning to a listening room format, in which every participant plays a song without accompaniment from others.

Please keep your songs to under 5 minutes so everyone has a chance to play twice.

Also, this song circle is acoustic except for a digital piano (so if you play piano, it’s already provided). Charts are not provided or projected.
