#opened12 Jamcamp

Are you an aspiring musician? Seasoned session player? Total amateur? Whatever your skill level, it matters not – we want YOU to join the #opened12 band!

During our sojourn on the high seas a scantily organized and under-rehearsed group will be providing entertainment, both light and heavy, on the Luau deck of the Queen of Diamonds. So sign up, suggest a song you want to sit in on, and pack your maracas, ‘cos this boat is rockin right until it is docking.

(And seriously, check the egos at the door – it’s all about participation, not perfection. And even if you don’t play an instrument, you can still shake a leg!)

theremin, various random noise sources, divine flangy-loopy effects – will play with anything weird. Also elec guitar & amp, can join in on various rock stuff – will wait to see the list

Oh yes bass as well. I’m assuming by the way that the Minnow song will feature prominently in the setup.

This sounds fun! I’m primarily a guitarist (blues, rock, jazz) but can play a bit if bass and banjo too. I won’t be able to bring an instrument but would love to borrow one and get involved! I’m pretty flexible in terms of material…

Rob, sign up isn’t mandatory or anything, but we’d love if you’d join in. If you can make the Tuesday practice session (or just want to sit in or pitch a song idea) add it here – https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Z075xScOVYd1jJl-kW-Wb9NEpbgiwLqk2myh7jXRVT8/edit

Wish I could be there!!! Someday…

I’m all for shakin’ a leg or riffin’ some spoken word. I might even pretend to play the bass (but only if I feel I can improve upon the beautiful cacophony, the right moment strikes, and the creative juices are flowing, of course!)

I will be holding down the wheels of steel most of the night, but you can expect me to pick up a tambo or gourd at some point destroy it!

I’ll be there tomorrow to high five you yesterday. I’ll play whatever, whenever, wherever, because I love all of you and you are made of love.

Zack, you have to play, man! And Jason, you ought to nab some vocals again.

I’ll make annoying noises on harmonica

Viv October 12, 2012 at 8:54 am

The saxophone fits in the suit case so I will be there!!!
