Thursday Afternoon Jam Session

Every Thursday afternoon musicians from around the RV Park meet in the Club House to practice and play their instruments. Terry first started this a few years back and it has progressed into what is now called a Jam Session. Every Thursday musicians from 3 other neighboring parks join in and Terry welcomes them and encourages them to get the word out. We “non musicians” are there to listen, enjoy and encourage them with our applause.

Meet Terry from Canada singing a slow song “Wish I Was 18 Again”. Kind of a fitting song to sing in a 55 and over RV Park in Florida don't you think?

That being a fairly slow song, we also have musicians who "pick it up" a little like Richard. He plays the guitar and harmonica at the same time. Here is Richard singing "Diana"

As you can see below in the 2 photo's we had a pretty good gathering of musicians. 

They pass the mic around and each musician plays a song of his choice. It may take 10, 15 seconds before the rest join in and play along. I don't know how they seem to do it as each musician has his or hers individual style, but it works.

This gent travels 45 minutes one way to attend. He is the only one that plays a flute and most of the time Betty joins in with her instrument. Have a listen with the link below.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
