GRATEFUL JAMS have resumed in Northern Virginia! This is a monthly open Dead jam series at Falls Church Distillers on the second Sunday of each month from 5 to 8 pm. Spread the news and come join the fun!
CELEBRATE life by getting jammy with members of Stealing Liberty and other area Deadhead musicians as we recreate the magic of the Dead and JGB one song at a time! Dancers, drinkers, hippies, and other kind folks are all welcome!
FCD has plenty of free parking and the food and drink are the best! This early Sunday-evening show at a mellow local venue should be ideal for everyone: folks who are staying local for the weekend, folks who are planning to travel, folks who are going to another show later in the evening, folks who want to have a nice meal and get home early, and many others in just about any imaginable situation.
MUSICIANS --- this is an open jam, so please bring your guitar, bass, harp, banjo, sax, keys, djembe, or other small instrument. The house provides a few amps, or you can bring your own if you prefer, but stage space is limited, so please try to share amps with others as much as possible and travel light. Large items like the drum kit, PA, and bass amp are already provided. When in doubt, use this page to inquire or coordinate your efforts.
STEALING LIBERTY will start the jam off with a four-song mini-set and then begin inviting jammers to join the fun on a rotating basis. Everyone who wants to play will get a chance. We do this on an informal basis and haven't needed to use a signup list yet, so just show up, introduce yourself if we don't already know you, and we'll make sure you get stage time.
SHOWCASE sets from established bands are welcome. Get your buddies together, come on out, and show us how it's done! Please contact us ahead of time so we can plan for you and publicize.
This is NOT an open mic. All are welcome, and it's fine to come alone, but you will need to perform as part of a group with others who have come to jam.
