When's the next one?
The jams are currently limited to ten experienced (info below) musicians to keep things safe.
We’re happy to send you an invite to the jams that are ideal for you, based on your playing experience and style:
Share the Joy
It’s a precarious time for musicians, filled with uncertainties that bring feelings of anxiety and social isolation. This is why we’d really love to help you rebuild a sense of community by creating an inspiring, chilled, fun yet safe environment to meet other artists over an afternoon/evening and create music together. It’s a breath of fresh air from the stresses of city life, where you can immerse yourself in the natural beauty that surrounds the Groove House, just 30 minutes from Lisbon.
In the Groove
Once the pandemic is significantly behind us, we’ll have bigger jam sessions and would love to welcome musicians of any level (the ‘Groove House Jams’ Meetup page has over 2000 subscribers). We’ll also be inviting an audience to listen in. In the meantime, we’d love to see you here if you:
1. have jammed for 10 years or more
2. consider yourself a good listener
3. can effortlessly pick up a basic progression by ear and/or keep a solid groove
We have amazing-sounding headphones with a professional live mix for every musician. You’d have to check for yourself to see how special the experience is.
Book Your Spot
Instead of performing particular songs, we’d love to encourage a collective flow state. More than what notes are being played, we focus on how they’re played. Less is often more, so anyone is always welcome to start playing a super simple progression with one to four chords max – and to play every note with absolute intention, while considering that on some level there’s no such thing as mistakes. Then we can see where the journey takes us. By remembering to fully listen to each other, we might lock into the flow. Styles typically range from groovy, funky, prog rocky, experimental, to anything that’ll get you grooving your socks off.
