Jam Sessions - Every Monday @ 7:00 PM!

1st Monday - Acoustic Song Circle (songs of the simpler variety) - In-person
1st Monday of each month, 7:00 - 8:30 PM

The heart of a song circle is you. Join Laura and Eric (aka Toast and Jam) for this musical round robin. Everyone gets a turn to call and lead a song. We will have Mid-City song books you can choose from and a whiteboard you can write on. Bring songs with 5 chords or less for the best chance of everyone being able to play along. See you there!

Sign up to play a tune! First Come First Served!!



Are you feeling your Star Power? Showcase your latest musical achievement, play along with what your friends are doing, or just kick back, listen and smile!



-Have you written a song that you're ready to try out in front of people?

-Have you worked out a new cover tune that you want to share?

-Are you just wanting some more challenging and new tunes for jamming?


Here's a chance to

-show off for your friends

-play along with what your friends have been doing, or

-just kick back and listen with your buddies.


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.




See y’all then!!!


-- George and the MCCM staff
