If you've been a long-time reader of my self-care and creativity articles (and thank you for that!), you may remember me posting in the Everyday Artist blog about Downtown Jam – here's a link to the original blog post.
It's a very unique music club in downtown Toronto, designed to provide musicians and singers with organized opportunities to make music together. Specifically, ROCK AND ROLL (woo hoo!), featuring a 500-song chord book with many of my favourites, including the Beatles, Joni Mitchell and others.
Well, it's taken me two years, but I finally joined! My first jam night is coming up on September 16 (I signed up to do keyboards and vocals), and I can't wait!
It' s exactly what I'm looking for right now: music-making that's just for me, but without the structure and time commitment of a choir, or the extra task of putting together my own group. And music that I truly love.
