Jams this week

Park jams restarting in April
Sellwood Park jams will restart on Saturday afternoons in April, weather permitting. The first park meetup is scheduled for April 3 at 2:00 as posted on meetup.com. If this fills up, please let us know if you want to be on the waiting list by sending an email to play@communityjams.org. We’ll send out more information by email in the next few weeks.

Weekend afternoons – NINJAM
NINJAM is an online format which allows distanced musicians to play repeated musical phrases asynchronously together. Community Jams stretches these online experiences using techniques honed from years of live jam sessions. This creates easy-to-access familiar jam experiences while staying online and distanced. We now broadcast our NINJAMs on Twitch so you can watch before trying it yourself. See how we slowly develop each song into a successful NINJAM session on Mondays and Thursdays at 7pm, Saturdays at 1pm, and Sundays at 12:30:

Now we have our own server for playing together with anyone around the world!  ninjam.communityjams.org:2049

Tonight – Drop in and sing, play, or listen
Staying connected with music by joining our Zoom Songshare – Open Mic from 7-9pm on Saturday evenings. We share whatever we’re working on, including songs, pieces of songs, riffs, and other musical contributions. We take turns like an open mic, but there is no need to practice or get it accurate. Play a solo you’ve been practicing, sing in a cappella, or simply play a favorite song you’ve been enjoying. Nobody has to worry about sharing a complete song or trying to make it sound perfect. The point is simply to share anything related music and support others who are staying involved with music. Please rsvp on Meetup.com and click this link to go to Zoom on Saturday evening:
