Riverton Acoustic Music Jam: Was Elvis in the House?

 I guess not... But these three Amigos made his presence felt thru the songs they each sang at last Wed's Riverton Senior Citizens Center Acoustic Music Jam! 

To kick off the Elvis night of songs was Pat M with 'I'm All Shook Up'. Then came Pat C with 'Love Me Tender'. And the last of the Elvis songs for the eve was done by Mr. Rock n Roll, Tim E with his rendition of 'Blue Suede Shoes'...WOW, Wow and wow to all!!!

Soft drinks, eats and treats to pass are welcome... so, bring your favorite delectables along to share!

Remember, this group is No Longer Amped-up individually for sound and voice but rather thru a shared sound system for solo songsters to take a turn (or Take2) at one of the mics provided front and center to lead their tune, inviting others in to 'take a ride.'

Also note, a 'Jam Facilitator' volunteer will handle the flow of the jam floor at each jam session - your full attention and cooperation with all eyes and ears on that person is greatly appreciated!

Recommended early sound system set-up time is 5:30PM for those who can arrive early to lend a helping hand. Otherwise. come as you can, find a spot and pls don't disrupt the jam that will hopefully be in progress by 6:30PM. Thanks!

South Pass City Gold Rush Days Everyone loved the Jammin for Gold Jam Session we had last year so we are doing it again, with a slight twist. Instead of a straight jam format, we will alternate with a hootenanny format. The Hootenanny basically is a rotation of bands to show off their stuff.  Not a jam but groups of 2 or more that are usually performers somewhere. We did that a little last year but want to promote it more. Some folks are at ease playing with strangers but some like to stay with their group. Anyway, it is Sunday, July the 10th 11AM-4PM. Once again, all participants will be entered into drawings for cash!!! Les Hamilton from packing the mail will be handling sound etc. for Sunday.
