What is a "Jam Sandwich" you ask.
How a Jam Sandwich runs
Each Jammer fills in a simple Rego Form on arrival.
On the Rego Form, we ask for your Name and 'main' musical talent / instrument. along with any other instrument/s that you would be happy to 'sit in' on, for a jam.
Jammers' names are then drawn out to create random 4 or 5 piece bands and displayed on a white board at the front of the stage..
Subsequent bands are announced progressively throughout the afternoon.
Each new 'band' will have time to get together to agree on and quickly work up three (3) songs. Then just tune up your instruments (with a TUNER!!) and hit the stage to perform your fresh musical masterpieces to the adoring crowd!
Jam Sandwich Process – A random draw to form a band
This 'random draw' Jam Sandwich format is open to musos of all abilities, ages and musical styles but our focus is Blues Music.
Singers and singer /guitarists, come prepared with a few lyrics / chord sheets for a few really well known EASY to perform songs - 3 chord classics.
When the new band is selecting the three songs, make sure everyone is reasonably comfortable with the songs chosen and maybe make a quick cheat sheet if needed. Song name, starting chord, progression any odd chords in the bridge etc.
Before you get on stage... Tune your instrument WITH A TUNER.
When on stage... Give your new band mates the chance to take a lead break... or two maybe even, if you have two lead guitarists, a harp blower or a cool cat on the keys.... share the love around..... but not for too long, we only got limited stage time.
