In case of more snow.

During this snowy season that we are having it would be best to call ahead to see if the music is still on.

The Minglewood Shuffle This Thursday  (Just this once.)

@

Alchemy

7-10pm

 

tmax

 

The Minglewood Shuffle on Thursday night is moved to Alchemy (yes, Alchemy–no longer Pinoli) at 3 Duncan Street (a side street that runs between Main St and Rogers St) in Gloucester. The reason for the last minute switch is that the floor at Minglewood were redone and the work didn’t get finished in time for the Shuffle.

Bluegrass Jam & Barn Jam (style wide open)

Sundays

diamond cove

Acoustic Jam Sessions Invitation
Slow Jam Tuesdays 7:30 – 9:30 pm  $15
Barn Jam (style wide open)  1st & 3rd Sunday  2 – 5  Free
Bluegrass Jam  2nd & 4th Sunday 2 – 5  Free
Bluegrass Jam! …. Do you love that high lonesome sound, that infectious toe tapping rhythm? Bluegrass Pickers you know who you are, so grab your instrument and come down to Dliamond Cove Music this Sunday.

The session will run 2-5 and is limited to 12 musicians’ seats. I’ve got room to have two jam sessions going at once which should help a lot! When you get more than 6 or 7 musicians jamming, it is usually neither satisfying for the musicians nor for any listeners. It just requires too much restraint. With two jams going at once, I can encourage enthusiasts of any ability to attend, and feel confident they should be able to get in on a session where they will feel comfortable. If you are having problems or have any suggestions, please let me know.

With a 12-seat limit, they’re sure to be snatched up quickly, so register today! If you reserve a seat in advance I will make sure you have a seat when you arrive. Musicians do come and go, so even if all seats have been reserved, come anyway and we will probably have room for you at some point.

RESERVE YOUR SEAT by emailing tom@diamondcovemusic.com
Listeners – please find a spot in the front half of the main room.
Customers – I’m open throughout the jam, but checking out new istruments is probably best done before and after the jam.
Musicians – I can’t offer loaner instruments for the jams. Cases must go into the rack or stacked just through door to 2nd room. Click to see proper etiquette.

Dave says,

OK girls, lets get here pronto for the U.F.O. mass hysteria sighting of that age-old teen idol: Mr. Evan Goodrow.  Front man, Qatarist mais non oui, oui,This guy will have you rocking on your crutches with his marvelous renditions of cult classics, nouveau blues, and Transylvanian folk songs. I sure do admire this man’s dogged nerve and rubber determination. E.G. is one of our faves around these parts, and a splendid show is suspected. We’ve hauled in Mr. Benny Benson, Our Irish Ace of Pace®,  afloat since Dunkirk, to handle the the breast-beating. I’ll be on base, hoping for a sacrifice fly. So, put on that Hai-Karate® or Stetson™ and/or wrap dress (or Chinese shoes )and dance the night away while you think about yourself!
