    I'm down in Rainier/ Yelm area; just east of Olympia. Unfortunately there isn't much of a music seen in Oly. and Seattle is to far away. Living in the country we are lucky if we get any live music and if we do it's destined to be a bad country band LOL. I don't know of anyone else on the forum from this area, although I believe there are a few from Portland.

    I'm on Camano Island, about 60 miles north of Seattle. Nothing on the Island. Just a couple of small bands in the town of Stanwood. (Population = 2300.)

    I used to, but haven't in years. Didn't think BeBop and Destruction was still together? I played a gig with Marc the other day.

    Is it a good session?

  11. #10
    Yeah, it varies from week to week. Its not technically be bop and destruction anymore. Jose Martinez is there every week, Eric Verlinde usually plays keys and the bassplayers rotate.

    it can be super smokin if good players show up, but like with any session, you don't want to be the guy who gets stuck playing the 25 min version of anthropology with 5 tenor solos.....

    I usually hit it every other week or so, and get called to play it every few months.

    I'll have to make one again. I'll shoot you a note if I know I'm going. Do the same if you think about it. It might get me out of the house.

    Seriously,

    We should schedule a seattle area jazz guitar forum meet up. I think that would be fun. And, I don't think this summer is perticularly slow, but I do notice, the older I get, the more I have to hustle for gigs. My cute face is wearing off I guess. Ha ha ha.

    Check out Seattle Jazz Guitar Society (SJGS). It hosts monthly jams on the 4th Thursday (with occasional exceptions for holidays).

    It also presents a few clinics a year. In fact there's a clinic on Saturday March 5th, 2016 with John Stowell and Jeff Johnson exploring guitar/bass duos.

    We have a Facebook page:

    www.facebook.com/SeattleJazzGuitar

    ...but our primary mode of communication is email. If you'd like to be on the distribution list, send a private message with your name and email address. You can send the PM either through the Facebook page or directly to me on this forum. You'll get a couple of SJGS emails per month, and no spam.

    Howdy guys, Seattle, Central District here. Any of you past or current attendees at Ev Stern's workshop or open jams? I've been in the habit of taking part every three years or so for the past dozen years. Lot's of fun and good people.

    I like playing a mix of jazz, pop, americana and originals if you're into jamming. I'd love to play with some of y'all and steal your licks and anything else I can from you. Music-wise, that is ;-)

    I attended Ev's workshops a few years ago and enjoyed them. I like Ev a lot. I try to avoid driving to Seattle much these days though.

    Have you attended the Seattle Jazz Guitar Society jams? They are announced here, monthly: https://www.facebook.com/SeattleJazzGuitar/

    Also try Jazz Night School in south Seattle. http://jazznightschool.org/

    Since you're interested in a variety of styles, you might find jams that interest you by using meetup.com. There are a couple of gypsy jazz jams, a choro jam, bluegrass, etc.

    In late February, head over to Wintergrass in Bellevue and wander the halls looking for swing jams. Especially in the evenings. If there are already enough guitars you may meed to just listen, but that's fun too. There are some great players.http://www.wintergrass.com/

    Joe Vinikow's Guitar for Grownups is excellent, but it's group lessons, not jams. http://www.guitarforgrownups.com/gfg_classes.html

    If you're interested in a camp, you might try BC Swing. I haven't attended, but I've heard it's a lot of fun with many good players. http://www.bcswingcamp.ca/

    Thanks for that list KirkP! I've heard Jazz Night School, but never looked into it. Wintergrass used to be a regular thing for me for years. So much fun, but I haven't been to it since it left Tacoma.
