Default Recurring song circle and open mic in Philadelphia, PA

Hi there!

If any of you live in the Philadelphia area (or anyone visiting, of course), check out our song circle / open mic.

We have a bunch of fun! We actually refer to it as our "guitar party".

Here is the link to our meetup group:
https://www.meetup.com/PhillyMusicalAchievers/

Hope to see some AGF'ers there!

Cheers,
Jerry

Interesting. I'm planning a jaunt to Ardmore on 10/15. I see the venue is an Ethopian restaurant. How big is it inside? It's been forever since I played someplace and might want to bring someone along for moral support.

Dang, kwak - sorry I'm late to respond. Hope you make it to the area again soon!

The owner give us our own room upstairs. We've had 30 people in there. That's pretty much the max.

We've been doing this for about 3 years now almost every two weeks

That's okay. I ended up going to Nazareth and meeting up with friends. I even gave them a house concert.

Default I'd be a jam buster

I was really interested in going,
looked at the website,
I was getting stoked about going,
I looked at the photos of the people at the last one,
Saw my ex playing and singing

I guess I'll keep looking for a Philly / Bucks County jam to join.

Cheers

Really??? Wow... small world, I guess, right?

Can you PM me more info if I may be so rude as to ask? Maybe it's someone who has only shown up once or twice. I run this meetup so I'd be able to tell you who comes on a regular basis.

Wow; what a great time! A decent turnout considering the crappy weather, we ended up leaving at 11:45 PM after a 7 hour stint (and if we had brought it up, I'm sure that at least a few people would have stayed longer).

Jerry, thanks a ton for not only setting this up some 3 years ago & getting the venue; but also for schlepping a major sound system & video display capability for everyone to be able to follow along and join in. Obviously, a load of dedication goes into this.

I also met at least 3 other first timers (along with me) there. All in all, quite the wide ranging bunch, both in age & style. I have to say that I'm looking forward to the next one!

Thanks for the kind words, Michael and it was awesome to have someone show by finding us through an AGF post! We definitely have a lot of diversity, in both people and music genres covered.

Glad to hear you'll be coming back!
