    Too late to jump in? My wife and I had tomorrow afternoon bookmarked for yard work, but it is supposed to rain so I'm thinking a road trip (from Pittsburgh) might be in order. We have a camp near Andover, Ohio and I've attempted to meet a couple of you in the NE Ohio area, but it never seems to work out. I'll probably mingle more than play, but you never know. I can bring a few mando's and a guitar or two.

    I'm going to have to bring a notebook to record mandolincafe user names of everyone I meet today. May be 10+ of us!

    edit: and I picked up my tenor banjo yesterday afternoon so that should be fun.

    Hey, I am trying to plan the next jam that I will be hosting and would like feedback on dates that work for everyone. I am thinking the following:
    Aug 25, or Sept 1, or Sept 22, or Sept 29th. Please let me know what works and I will provide a new forum with all the details on this fun-filled event.

    Just wanted to thank everyone involved in the Wellington get-together. Thanks to those who hosted it and those that took the time and trouble to drive so far to join the little group. It was a lot of fun for me.

    Obviously, it was an eclectic group to say the least. A lot of the music that was played was far beyond my capabilities. Thanks for taking it down a notch every now and then so I could jump in with my three chord hillbilly stuff!

    I look forward to seeing you all again sometime in the future.

    I second the sentiment, it was loads of fun, and Mandolee was the highlight for me ! I will plan on trying to host something down here in the Cleveland Akron area later in the summer.

    I was just about to post the same thing! Thanks to all involved at the Wellington get together. I had a great time. It was fun to sit back and hear the different songs being called out and doing my best to follow along watching the hands / chord changes from whoever called it out! I just wish the picking would have been longer than the drive! When the phone starts blowing up...it's time to go. Some of us really should get together at our camp this summer and play by the lake or around the campfire. Think about how far it would be for you to Andover, Ohio (on Pymatuning Lake). Keep it in the back of your minds anyway. Thanks again.

    Wow, what a good time. There ended up being.... twelve of us from the cafe showing up throughout the day? Thanks everyone for coming out. Not sure where Andover is at but I'll be there!

    The establishment owners wanted me to thank everyone for coming by, they had a wonderful time listening to everyone.

    Mandolinleee, I'm so glad you were able to make it this time and I hope you enjoy your day sightseeing in Cleveland today, even with this rain.

    I'm really happy we had such a great turnout this time around and I think a thanks is in order to mandolincafe for giving us mandolin folks a place to orgainze such events. Without this site, this kind of stuff wouldn't happen.

    Hi to the Wellington Crowd -

    WOW what a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon. Eric C thanks for your organization of this event.

    Also, a big THANK YOU to all the musicians that showed up. It was a fun event. I am glad I got to meet all of you.

    A quick apology for my breathing problems, just something I have to live with.

    It would be fun to get with you again to work out some tunes. Hoping that happens.

    A big thank you to the Red Iron Bar & Grille for hosting us.

    It was worth 150 miles of rainy highway.

    Regards,
    Lee

    To all the folks that lament on the 'Cafe that they don't have anyone to play with, go re-read this thread.

    Put up a invitation for players in your area, find a venue and hold an event.

    This started with three players last Fall and grew into 12 - 13 players yesterday.

    Eric C had a good idea for this get-together and it was successful. Now future events are being considered.

    Thanks, again Eric, Ed and Londy and everyone else.

    Thanks again to Eric and his band and everyone who showed up. That was a great time! Looking forward to the next one. I was thinking that maybe a small dry erase board would have come in handy to scribble down some of the more complex chord changes.
    Just an idea.

    i too had a GREAT time. was great to put faces with the cafe handles. the fact that the band was there to anchor things made it so much easier. that was a great idea and it was very nice of them to do it. as to that 3 chord hillbillies comments, if i had your voice i'd sell my mandolin & guitars and just sing. i thought everything went smoothly. everyone fit in, everyone played & communicated. that's what it's all about. i've been to too many things where it was more of an open mike thing. someone would play, then someone else etc.... it was nice to be in a good old jam. brought back a lot of memories. i will be at the next one, and the next one and the next one.
    londy, as for your get together, i don't plan ahead so any date is good for me. start praying that the fish bite and i can stock pile some.-hermie/dwilken

    as i reread my post i see it could be read into it that i was slamming flatrock hillbilly and telling him to sell his mando!!!!!! not what i meant. he is an excellent musician. i was just sooooooo impressed with his voice. he and the guitar player from the band had voices i would kill for----hermie

    Doggone-it Hermie, I misunderstood and already gave away my mandolins and guitar!
    Only kidding of course. Thank you for the compliment. I never took it to be 'slamming' in any way.
    I do like to sing my old country/bluegrass/rockabilly songs. Problem is sometimes I don't know when to shut up and give the other guys a turn.
    I really did have a great time hearing all the different styles of playing and it was lots of fun to meet the people from this friendly forum.
    Gotta thank Doug for 207 and the 'Stubby'. I'm still pretty new to the mandolin and I love trying new picks!

    I also wanted to give a loud shout out to Eric for arranging such a GREAT time with all the wonderful people that showed up. This group was a lot of fun to play with and provided much variety in music. Thanks for inviting me and will definitely attend again.

    PS: I will be hosting an event as well. I just need to assess which dates work best for most.
    Aug 25, or Sept 1, or Sept 22, or Sept 29th. Please let me know what works and I will provide a new forum with all the details on this fun-filled event.

    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    A dry erase board sounds like a good idea to me. I brought 4-5 copies of several songs I play, some paper to create a sign-in sheet and a camera and got so excited making music forgot and left them all in the car.

    On the ride home, I mentioned to my wife 2 things we were missing: there were no female mandolinists or left-handed players.

    Thanks, again for a great day and I look forward to "doin' it all again."

    Folks, I need to confirm 2 dates for the September Jam I will be hosting. Which date is better, Sept 21st or 22nd. I was not sure if people could make Saturday the 21st due to folks gigging. Please let me know and I will confirm with all the event details.
