Jammin" at the Truckstop

Recommended Posts

Some friends and I were asked to be the "host band" for one of our BluesJam Class open jams at a local truckstop club in Portland, Ore. We intro'd with 5 songs ( we had 2 practices beforehand the week before), then the open jam began for an hour. After a break for all, we came back for 4 more songs from the "Vancouver Boys", followed by the open jam. Two of the players (one on the left and the guitar player on the right with the cap) are 2 of the instructors in the class we asked to join us for the sets. Again, iPad poor quality for recording, is a couple of our songs at the beginning of the night. Lots of fun. The drummer(my brother-in-law) played for 2 1/2 hours, no replacement, poor guy. 

 

Going to take a break for a couple weeks. I have had a bunch of practices , classes and performances over the last 3 months. Need to work on some skill building....back to the books for a spell....and the Americana trio of course.

That's great Greg, you're really getting out there!

It's good to see clips of forum members out there performing and having fun. It's what all the hours of practice has been about, right?!

Keep it going Greg.

This is great Greg. I'm digging around on the site to see what I can see and wanted to give you another comment. Congrats for getting out there. Fun stuff, eh?

I can't speak for your brother-in-law, but playing drums for a long time can be super fun and a huge shot in the arm for playing. Playing West African rhythms for dance class used to be so challenging. Drums are a vital ingredient, but not the main event. If anybody is off, everybody knows instantly! Visiting African dance masters took it a step up from there. I left a lot of sweat playing on the dance floors.

Thanks again Greg. I'm watching guitar/Western music equivalents to dance class playing. Dance class was a sign your skills were to a certain hard-earned level. I'm looking forward to experiencing that level playing the guit'!

Nice Greg, that's what it's all about, music with your friends.  It doesn't get better than that....unless you get to play for an audience that appreciates it.  Guess you have it all👏👍
