Our Jam Sessions have become popular. Dust off that old guitar, keyboard, drum set, bass, ukulele or whatever you have, and come on out. The next one is on Oct. 25. Set up is between 5 and 5:30 p.m., we play for 3-4 hours. We are looking for beginning/intermediate musicians who would like to learn to play with others. You should have the ability to play a few songs, but you don’t have to be very good. And please bring a song or two that we can all play together. We have a few instruments you can use or bring your own. Call Mark at the center for more details at (661) 822-6794.
