The second annual DC jam is now official! We've reserved the Electric Maid, a good venue for a 30-person jam, on Sunday, March 5, from 10 AM-7 PM. Music will probably commence around noon.

If you attended last year, we plan pretty much the same event, kind of a Junior version of Clamfest, yet with our own special DC weirdness :^)

So far, gmanNJ has agreed to crank up his terrific List of Love system to allow participants to nominate and vote on the tunes we'll play.

Stay tuned here for more details. And please chime in if you can make it and share any ideas and other comments.

March on, brothers!

Thank you tiller and gman!

What about Led Zeppelin?

Not an Zep-expert, so please help with some input on their songs that are doable in our format, skill levels.

What about:
Over the Hills and Far Away
Heartbreaker

I'm in. I'll be coming with Geno and assisting with PA setup like we did last year.

Songs I'd like to get on the list being I didn't get any last year.

Billy Joel - You may be right (Vocals and Guitar)
Black Crows - Remedy (Guitar)
Black Crows - Hand to Handle (Guitar)
Blue Oyster Cult – Godzilla (Bass)
Crowded House – Dream Its Over (Guitar)

I have charts made for all of these already and can share when the time it right for that.

-Scott

Those songs will be put on the list we all vote for. If enough people want them they will make the final list. Then if they do the slots will be open to all on a first come first served basis.

This is done in rounds where we can all pic only 5 sings per slot.so you can grab 5 vox, 5 guitar and 5 bass slots in round 1. this makes it fair to all

I'll double up with Geno on guitar on Who can it be now. Yeehaw

gmanNJ Emails bounce back all the time from Geno's work address. I had one come back to me today that I had sent to him weeks ago. Weird!

I didn't know about the Royal Southern Brotherhood before, but this song would be a great one for the jam...

Gary Moore's "Still Got the Blues" is a good song and an opportunity for soulful guitar soloing (and horns)--though Moore's guitar pyrotechniques are way beyond my level!

Do you advanced fellas think this one would work?

Still Got the Blues
