Play salsa music, latin jazz and jamming get togethers. Come prepared to play pre coordinated songs, then ready to improvise and jam (Descarga). To start, we will try and meet up formally every two months, but I do anticipate some ad hoc get togethers as people want to play and/or rehearse more frequently in smaller groups.
I have plenty of songs to choose from along with the scores for the most common instruments; piano, bass, trumpet, trombone and sax. Everyone is welcomed to bring music or suggest songs. All instruments are welcome. This is to include vocals either as a lead or backup. It is hoped that we will get multiple people playing the same instrument. This helps keep the sessions going when folks cannot attend every meet up.
Some general expectation and guidelines:
• If you RSVP to attend an event, please make sure you attend or change your RSVP notice. Not doing so will result in removal from the Meet Up group. This is all along the lines of commitment and being courteous to others (e.g. no flakes)
• At initial request to join the PSLJ, you must indicate what instrument you play. All request will be reviewed for this information.
• Folks will be at different skill levels so patients and being respectful is a must. I myself am at an intermediate level and am looking to get much better.
