OMG: Trombone/tuba/trumpet players wanted for an old time blues and jazz band. Think Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith, Sidney Bechet, pre-war music. There are a bunch of us already, between ages 24 and 77 and would really like some brass instrumentalists to jam with. Please respond here if you're interested!

  1. I have a clarinetist, a mandolin player and a guitar player, and I play tenor banjo and sing. There's a violin player who makes appearances from time to time. we use chord charts but generally do things by ear.

    also, I'm a grad student. We've very nonthreatening. Just want to jam more often and get some regular shows booked this year.

  4. If you're looking for gigs, try the Hep Cat Hoppers. They often host live swing/jazz/blues music for dancers.
