Hi all in Cyber Space,
A good friend and master guitarist Val Lupescu who plays in Master vocalist Cara Lippman of Cara Being Blues Band told me about them having a pro-blues jam at a venue called "The Country" in Nashville, TN. Having been to many of these in Nashville and not liking them do to politics I was very skeptical. I headed down to club, The Country on Tuesday to see and hear my good friend/master guitarist Val Lupescu play. Cara Lippman's band is awesome and Val was giving it up on the guitar! After the band set came the blues jam at 9pm. My friend Val Lupescu come over to me and introduced me to leader Cara Lippman, she explains the blues jam to me and there is a sign up sheet, I like this already. The other blues jams there was no sign up sheet and had to wait for whenever until the friends of the band were done jamming. So I sign up for the 2nd round not knowing what will come of this.
At 9:20 pm I'm called up to jam. The singer calls out a key. Mostly a 1-4-5 blues progression, counts the tempo off and everyone starts at the same time. I like this blues jam even more and what excellent fun! All the musicians are very well gifted and knowledgeable on their instruments and vocals. I can say living in Nashville, TN for 20 yrs this is not only best blues jam in Nashville, TN! It is the most professionally blues jam in Nashville,TN! If you are a pro-musician and looking for a place to jam with other pro-musicians, 'The Country" on Tuesday Nights is the place to be. Check website for times http://thecountrynashville.com/
Until next time. Thanks for your support & reading,
