We have been having a great time with the jams. While we all recognize that participating in person is better, these virtual jams have helped in these crazy times. Since April of 2020 we have held a Zoom based jam every two weeks and have covered over 560 songs! It looks like it will still be some time before we are able to get together in person.
We are taking a small break and will be holding our next jam on October 25th. Should be lots of fun and we look forward to it! Take care and hope to see you in October!
Our next online jam is on August 30th, 2021. As usual we will start the Zoom session at 6:45 PM and start strumming at 7:00 PM. Th details for the Zoom call are:
