Riverton Acoustic Music Jam Newsletter

 ***Upcoming Riverton Music Jam Schedule***

Riverton Holiday Inn - Wed. eves 6:30PM - 9:30PM - May 25th, June 1st and June 15th

Riverton Senior Citizens Center - Wed. eves 6:30PM - 9:00PM - June 8th, June22nd and June29th
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 PA system for solo songsters to take a (Take2!) turn at one of the mics provided front and center to lead their tune, inviting others in to 'take a ride.' If you want to plug in your stringed instrument on your turn (or use a mic provided), you can do it.

So, lighten your load. Leave your amps, mics, cables, etc. home (U-bass, keyboard and pedal steel guitar exceptions allowed if not room in the sound system to plug-in).

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 (TBD) 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!

TAKE NOTE - be sure to come early if you desire to be plugged-in and set-up to the sound board (FCFS as is available) for voice and/or instrument for the duration of the jam; as in if you don't, then you may have to take a pass and only be amplified if/when you take a turn front n center!

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. 11-4Once again, all participants will be entered into drawings for cash!!! Les Hamilton from packing the mail will be handling sound etc. for Sunday.

Contact Steve Beazley at 307-237-4085 or

Jimmie Bales 3rd annual Bluegrass Music Festival - dates are August 12, 13 and 14th this year.  Flyer coming out soon. 
Contact Jimmie at 307-851-0051.

Celebrating a Decade!
The Fast and the Furriest is a 5k/1k annual race to help fundraise for the Critical Care Companion Animal Fund. The Critical Care Companion Animal Fund was created to help pets who are in desperate need of critical veterinary care: however, the family of that pet is unable to provide the finances needed to cover the veterinary costs needed for medical treatment. This fund is for small, large, and exotic animals and is available for residents who demonstrate need. The Fast and the Furriest also raises awareness about preventative care of our pets and provides a fun-filled day of exercise, education, and food!
