  1. I’ve just arrived in Grand Rapids after decades playing music on either coast … I’d love to catch one of your shindigs — when’s the next one?

  2. Ken Wasco says:

    Fabulous website – really have enjoyed reading the articles and looking at the picss – haven’t found any information about how to become a member although perhaps I am not looking hard enough around the site! Can anyone attend the meetings? If I’m ever in town on one of the meeting dates I would love to drop in to see what you are about!

    • Ken, NO membership, just bring your mind to this Hysterical place and suck in the knowledge, but also leave some, if you have any. Knowledge needed: Bands and Musicians that are not on our lists!!!
      About the Meetings, they are open to the public and please bring a friend, fellow musician, or just yourself, they usually last 2-3 hours. Next meeting is next Friday, April 8th. You just never know who’s going to show up!!! Regards, Doug Taylor Admin

  3. Dave Hayes says:

    I am hoping to see sales of the videos taken at the We Do Care jam at K of C hall. Any possibility of this happening? Need to do this again also.
