From Rich O'Hara. . . What a great idea. Good Job.
Blues Jam/Jazz Jam
We are inviting Treasure Valley teenagers to join with other young musicians to try out their talents and learn to play together at a blues jam/jazz jam. The jam will be supervised by adult volunteers and lead by experienced teenage musicians. Everyone will have a chance to play; first come/first served.
The first jam will be Sunday, March 15th from 4 to 7 pm at the Sockeye Grill on Cole Road. We expect this to be a weekly event, although the next event is scheduled for March 29th to accommodate Spring Break.
We are advertising through local schools, BSU, notices to private music teachers, and by listing the event in the Boise Weekly and the Idaho Statesman. Posters are attached. Please print them out and post them if you’d like to help publicize this event.
Rich O'Hara and Marty Guerra orchestrated this event. Rich is the father of Patrick O’Hara, a junior at Timberline who plays guitar and harmonic. Marty has two young sons and several private students who play drums.
The Sockeye Grill was selected because it offers all-ages access, food and beverage service, a room capable of accommodating 50 – 100 people, a central Boise location, and a stage. Marty and Rich will provide band equipment. Musicians need only bring their instruments.
