FOG holds weekly “jam sessions” to learn new music, practice old tunes from our current repertoire, and exchange tunes, tips, techniques, and tales. Jams start about 6:30 pm and usually end around 8:30 to 9:00 pm.
Visitors, both players and listeners, are always welcome; you don’t have to be a member of FOG to participate. There is a suggested donation of $3 which goes towards rental of the space from the VFW or American Legion. Instrumentalists at all levels of ability are welcome: everyone starts as a beginner. And we love an audience!
The first half hour is a “learner’s jam.” We play tunes from our current repertoire at slower tempos. This is a great way to improve your skills and to practice tunes you have been working on learning.
Please note that jam sessions may be canceled due to inclement weather or holidays.
