The ever-popular Slow Jam starts at 1:30 PM. It is for beginning to advanced beginners who can play chords at a steady rhythm pace by vamping or chopping. The intent of the Slow Jam is to keep the tempo down, between 60 and 90 beats per minute (bpm). Several notebooks with the sheet music will be available. Bring a music stand if you have one. Check out the SCVFA website for the current Slow Jam tune list.
Come prepared to share your talent on stage.
"Afters" Join the group for dinner after the jam at a local restaurant. Relax and get to know one another. This month, we will meet at Sam’s Bar-B-Que
