New Open Jam Club For Sligo Musicians Nov 17th!

A message from Greg of the Bluestack Jammers that he asked me to pass along to you all.

The Bluestacks Jam Club is coming to Sligo to its fourth venue in The Garavouge Bar Wednesday November 17th at 9.30pm and every Wednesday night after that. The club is all about Jamming with other musicians and started in Donegal last year, So far it operates in 4 venues where over 400 musicians have performed and 10,000 people have came to the gigs.plus 4,000 fans on Facebook. We want to show the world our talented musicians and artistes and we do that by taking videos and posting them on Youtube.

The Club is open to all Musician and live music lovers of all ages who want to network with other Musicians and Jam with them. or maybe you want to start a band and get to know people in the Music business like Recording Studios, Music Venues, Artistes and Managers. So far we've seen some band formations and gigs coming out of this and it doesn't stop there. We've established The Bluestacks Backers, a Multi Member band who perform The 4th Fri of each month @9pm in The National Bar Donegal town, The 2nd Fri monthly in The Bee Hive Ardara at 9pm and every sun in Voodoo Club Letterkenny at 8pm where some 400 plus Musicians have Jammed so far.
This is fast becoming a network of session musicians that can backup any Singer or Songwriter in a professional way. We want to expand this so that at any given time we can have a band on call for any occasion. You maybe in a well established band and want to try something different. We don't expect you to run away and join the our circus forever!! as there will always be someone there to play your position just like a football team.You may only be able to turn up every know and again so that way it suits everybody.If you wanna become a member just send an email titled with the instrument you play or if your a singer do the same to BluestacksJamClub@ymail.com and that way it makes the whole thing much easier for us all to manage. We will put you in contact with all the other members and who knows what that could led to.

The Bluestacks Jam Club was launched back in June 2009 with special guest Johnny Gallagher from The Boxty band who toured all over Europe and has been on several TV shows over there. Also The Mirenda Rosenberg Band have performed. Mirenda has shared the stage with Blues Legends Buddy Guy and Chuck Berry. Donegal singer song writer Sean Needham who supported Bo Didley and Tracy Chapman and was interviewed by Dave Fanning about his new album Time Is A Friend ,plus Mark Black, whose live appearances included Glastonbury 2009, guested and performed with Moya Brennan and Liam O Maonlai at the Spirit Voices Show, and a string of festivals and packed out gigs across Ireland. Also Matt McGranaghan from Kintra a 12 piece Band who have entertained President of Ireland Mary McAleese in Áras an Uachtaráin.Kintra have played the biggest Irish festival in the world in Milwaukee USA back in August this year.

The latest Guest to the club was Elvis Presley's Bass guitarist Jerry Scheff who we put a band together for to play the Frosses Festival Co.Donegal
Jerry played bass on The Doors album L A woman ,John Denver,Elvis Costello and Bob Dylan and many many more.

These Artists became successful as a result of Networking with other Musicians and like minded people and fully support our mission and some times drop by for a Jam , a chat, and a bit a craic and we look forward to you doing the same next Wednesday November 17th at 9.30 pm in the Garavogue Bar and every Wednesday nite after that plus its free entry at the door.
