Why? To spread the love of improvisation in the community and to create a nurturing and friendly environment for all to play and enjoy live music.
What do I want to do if I want to jam with the MIC Band?
You can either:
a) email us the key and title of the song(s) you want to sing or play beforehand or,
b) you can just turn up and inform us what song you would like to sing or play.
Regarding emailing us the song title, you don’t need to if you don’t want to. It’s just an additional option so we can prepare ahead for you!
Our email is : firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also use our Contact page on this website to email us the songs.
What kind of songs do you play or should I be expecting?
Primarily, we love Jazz, Latin, Blues, Funk, Afro-cuban, R&B, Smooth Jazz, etc. so these are some of the more common sounds you will hear. However, we also love all things improvisational! Therefore, once in a while we will play and improvise other genres such as Pop, Pop-jazz, Classical, Instrumental Themes, etc. The main thing here is to improvise.
What other things should I be expecting?
Expect no egos, no complaints, no divas, no negative vibes – just a gathering of good people drawn by the love of music, coming together with respect and love for each other 🙂
