Club concert: Wednesday 9 October 2019

Daylight saving is in, and spring is sprung, so you can head up to the Bunker in daylight again, for another great Auckland Bluegrass Club Concert.  

We can pretty much guarantee some pretty tunes, slick tunes, sad songs, happy songs, and songs glorifying alcoholism, smoking, gambling, rambling, God, life in prison, broken hearts, dying parents, gravesides, and all the other themes of bluegrass and Americana music,  sung happily by people who are far too nice to get involved in anything nasty or untoward.

Should be fun!

If we have time, we’ll have a jam at the end, but don’t forget the jam the week before in town, which is good practice for a slot in the club concert.

Jamming at the Greenhouse

It worked! Last month we had a great jam session at the Greenhouse in Ponsonby and this month we’re going to repeat the fun. It was a great occasion to have a go, or sing without fear of being an egg. We have a club concert the following week, so hopefully this jam will throw up a few good ideas for that.

The idea arose thanks to the generosity of an Auckland Bluegrass Club supporter. We get the key to The Greenhouse in Ponsonby on the first Wednesday of the month for a jam session and as a bonus there is parking in the vacant lot next door

Of course you can come and sit quietly and observe, sit on the out edge, or come to listen – we don’t mind.

But if you are up for it, we’d love you to work up a song or two you’d be prepared to sing – something you know will work for jam. If you need some ideas, check out the Auckland Bluegrass Club Songbook available to newsletter subscribers.

If you find yourself retreating to the bedroom and playing to yourself, for well …fun… here’s a tonic that will restore your musical self esteem, give you instant social credibility, and put everything right with the world.

Thanks to the generosity of a supporter, Auckland Bluegrass Club has got the key to The Greenhouse in Ponsonby on the first Wednesday of the month for a jam session. Better still, there is lots of free parking right next door. (If you’re not from Auckland you might not realise what a big deal this is).

Of course you can come and sit quietly and observe, sit on the out edge, or come to listen – we don’t mind. But if you are up for it, we’d love you to work up a song or two you’d be prepared to sing – something you know will work for jam. If you need some ideas, check out the Auckland Bluegrass Club Songbook available to subscribers.

By holding it the week before our regular Bluegrass Club events at the Bunker there will be lots of chances to put together something that sounds good for a floor spot the following week.

And we can jam.
