Signup

There is a sign-up sheet for those who would like to call a song. If you are a new jammer, ask around about suitable accompanists.

Please let us know the song you would like to perform.

Respect:

  • Please be welcoming and introduce yourself to strangers. It makes a difference!
  • Only call or join a tune if you know it well.
  • Keep your solos short. Please keep them to one or two choruses, and splitting choruses on a ballad is a good idea.
  • Playing obligato behind a singer is nice, but choose only one player at a time to do this, so you don’t drown out the singer.
  • To make sure there is room for all players, generally play on no more than two tunes.
  • For audience members, please try to keep it down while others are playing.

Keep it quick and simple:

  • Make the form easy to play, without a lot of complicated arranging instructions.
  • Choose tunes that have a reasonable expectation of being known (and please go easy on Autumn Leaves, Summertime, and Route 66!) note: No Long solos.
  • Please be ready to play when your song is called. Have your instrument and music in order and quickly make your way to the stage when the previous combo finishes.

NOTE:- YOU MUST PROVIDE A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN REGISTERING - NO GMAIL OR HOTMAIL ACCOUNTS - WE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR REGISTRATION THROUGH EMAIL AND BE RESPECTFUL AS WE ARE TRYING TO START OUR SUNDAY JAZZ IN MISSISSAUGA. CHEERS
