Blues New From Portsmouth September 2012

Hello and welcome to this months blues newletter...

* Jamming At The Auckland *

The new Sunday Lunchtime Jam at the Auckland Arms has got off to a great
start, with two Sunday sessions under our belt and the "Festival Jam". As a
slight variation on the previous Jam at The Florence we have a set of
congas set up as standard, giving more options for rhythmic additions to
the sounds, and ofcourse the acoustic piano is miced up through the PA. 

We've add a few new players to the regulars, but more are always welcome, as
of course are listeners! If you want to play get there early we set up at
12:00 players should arrive arround 12;15 if possible, although wewill
still try and fit you in if you arrive later. We start jaming at 12:30 and
play through to about 3:00 ish. (2:30 official end plus overun :-))

Next one is Sunday October 7th
