    I spoke to my brother about getting the American Legion Hall for a little informal Grtesch Jam session, He said ,"pick a date,its yours".

    Im thinking about a date sometime in August, A one day deal on Saturday morning into the late evening. A few people asked me already about attending but I wanted to see if anyone else was interested.

    All the usual Covid Precautions will be taken , so there is No need to turn this into a lengthy covid discussion. Everyone will be required to bring their own Microphone if they want to sing. Wear a mask,dont wear mask its up to you.

    There was a $20 donation to the Legion that included a Steak dinner, which will probably in effect again.

    Anyone interested feel free to comment.

    Thank You, since pretty much everything is opening up I figured it was time to get together and play some music with others.

    Hey, that sounds great! I don't have the chops for it but would love to be there and make everyone else sound even better. Had my #2 Moderna shot yesterday so that's theoretically all good.

    Chops are not required or expected, we play everything from easy 3 chord tunes to Van Halen. No judgements are ever given . As long as you come to have a good time , are friendly and drink a few cold ones you'll fit right in.

    That has been my role in the last 2 jams that Hydro put on. I will not disappoint at this one either.

    I went to the 1st jam having never played in a group situation. It was a blast even if I kept my amp volume low.

    Location works for me. My dearest friend for over 50 yrs lives in Sa Dimas. I can stay with him. We both bought our first good guitars together over 45 yrs ago....We both still have them. I should bring a Gretsch for him,....He is a Bluegrass, Martin and banjo guy:eek:

    I hope it happens

    That would be fun. A bit of a hike from Bay Area, but I'll consider.

    Last time , Joe C. had a his old Bandmate from his Teenage years join us and they Jammed together. It was fun to watch.

    Martin's are invited to come along, especially if Bluegrass is involved.

    If I can get my 2 and 4 year old vaccinated by then, I’m in. Any word if anyone from Gretsch is filling in for the Joe C role for these types of things? Just curious.

    Nope, Joe C is a special kind of person and is Irreplaceable, So it looks like no Gretsch Swag this year. Im sure there will be a few items that will be given away as there are going to be attendees from the GDP coming along as well.

    I can't wait, and a couple things Manny didn't mention about this venue: A) the jam area is next to the bar, and B) being an American Legion Hall, drinks are very reasonably priced. I see this as a win-win.
