Unique and inspiring jam sessions
for musicians near Lisbon
Live the music. Share the joy.
When's the next one?
Based on your playing experience and preference, we’ll send you an invite to the jams that would be most enjoyable for you.
Share the Joy
This is a precarious time for musicians. Cancelled concerts, lockdowns, uncertainty over the music industry…and it brings feelings of anxiety and social isolation. This is why we really want to help you rebuild a sense of community by creating a safe, relaxed, fun, and inspiring environment in which to meet other musicians over an afternoon and create music together. This is your chance to escape the stresses of Lisbon and fully immerse yourself in the stunning natural surroundings of the Groove House.
In the Groove
Once Covid is significantly behind us, we’d love to welcome musicians of any level. Over 2000 people have registered for the ‘Groove House Jams’ on Meetup, but in the meantime we welcome players/singers who:
1. have jammed for at least 10 years
2. can effortlessly pick up a basic progression by ear
3. can keep a solid groove for a while
Part of the uniqueness of these jams is that we have professional headphones for all players, with a superb live mix of all the instruments. You’d have to experience it for yourself to see what an enormous difference that makes in a jam setting.
Book Your Spot
Instead of performing particular songs, we’d love to try and get into a collective flow state. More than what notes are being played, we’re interested in 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 them with absolute intention, while understanding that on some level there’s no such thing as mistakes…then we can see where the journey takes us. As long as we’re really listening to each of the other instruments, I think we can make some magic! Styles typically range from groovy, funky, prog rocky, experimental, to anything that’ll get you grooving your socks off.
