What do you do if there ARE no sessions?
I’m getting very frustrated. I’ve lived near Santa Cruz, CA, for nearly six years now, and have yet to find anyone on my side of the mountains to play with. I know there have been sessions here before…I saw a flyer for one at a Mexican restaurant (yes, really) in Felton (which disappeared before I could check it out) and another once for a house session (phone calls never returned). We have two "Irish" pubs here…one features jazz, when they have music at all (and is a bit of a high-brow place, from what I’ve seen), and the other seems to be all about poetry readings. I know I can’t be the only Irish musician on this side of the Santa Cruz Mountains, but I have no idea how to hook up with people who might be interested in getting together and playing once in a while. Any suggestions? I thought about just putting up flyers, but hereabouts that’s as likely to hook you up with a psychopath as with anything else.
