Count Basie

Blues Band!

Learn how to make music, rehearse and jam in a live band setting! All ability levels are invited to have fun learning, rehearsing and jamming with other musicians. Guitar players, harmonica players and horn players are invited to join the bandleader for five consecutive weeks of rehearsal as he sings and plays live on the "Hammond Organ" along with various drum and bass tracks - band members are welcome to sing as well. Learn how to play solos, generate rhythm section parts, use dynamics, unlock your creativity, and more with each session. Join just for fun, or join the band to grow the experience required to attend join local jam sessions, join a band or start your own musical project! Either way, this band experience is meant to be a fun way to learn, grow and make new friends!

Check out the video to hear what the band sounds like, and feel free to jump right in even if you are a beginner (to learn by doing)!"
