Re: Jives Coffee House

Relocated session will be Every Thursday evening from 7 to 10. Very active session with 8 to 12 or more regular locals and moderate skill level. Much more space for both audience and musicians now. Still a good idea to call before you come, until we get settled in, especially if you’re coming from out of town.

Call me for info, Doug Huggins
At 719-208-1817 or 719-260-1389

Re: Jives Coffee House

Our thanks to Randy, the owner of Jives Coffee House, for hosting us.

While we’re sad to see Agia Sophia close, with all it’s wonderful musical memories, we will be making new memories in a new more spacious setting, and we’re looking forward to it!

This session frequently has between eight and 14 local musicians, many of whom have been playing together for decades… and may include a couple of singers, a couple of fiddlers,a guitar or two, players on keyboard-accordians and button-accordions, and concertinas, pennywhistles, flutes, hammered dulcimers, mandolins, bouzouki, Uillean pipes, and other traditional acoustic instruments. Skill level is moderate to medium to high on any given night. Beginners are welcome to listen, learn, and when they are competent, join in … provided they are within the Irish, Scottish, or other Celtic music traditions.

To avoid being overwhelmed, we ask that if there are multiple bodhran players, please take turns one at a time, and don’t all play at once… Also, Slow Airs, waltzes, and many slow songs are generally not improved by drumming.

Re: Jives Coffee House

My son will be an instructor at USAFA a year from now. I am a POLITE bodhran player 🙂 who would love to come to listen and observe once my son has relocated there. I have a fleece-ended tipper for those awkward occasions when nobody wants to hear me🙂. I’d just like to listen and learn, especially with the wide array of musicians you list.

Re: Jives Coffee House

Love to jam here, with many instruments and sometimes playing to dancers and an appreciative audience.

Re: Jives Coffee House

Please call before coming. Colorado restaurants and bars are in takeout and delivery mode due to COVID-19 for at least the next 30 days, so the Thursday nite session at Jives has been suspended at least until 17 April 2020.

Once the contagion has passed we do expect to return to Thursday evening fun.

Thanks for understanding!

Re: Jives Coffee House

Back up and running despite COVID-19? Flute players, who can’t mask up when playing, welcome? Thanks, Eric

Re: Jives Coffee House

Nope, not up or running just yet…most folks in the trad music community are still shy of indoor sessions, though a handfull of the brave and hardy have restarted Quinn’s Alehouse Sunday Session…including me and a number of ladies. There’s also the temporary house session, by invitation only…as you and I discussed separately.
Thanks!
Doug

Re: Jives Coffee House

Parking is limited on the street but there are a few public parking lots around Jives that may not be obvious driving by. Mapquest or Apple Maps show several of the ones I know of. Call me if you have questions.

Re: Jives Coffee House

Update: Maintaining status quo, session starts at 5 pm and ends at 8 pm until further notice.

Jives own website is in error, the session is 5-8 pm not 8-11 pm.

Call Doug at 719-208-1817 if you have questions on the session.

Re: Jives Coffee House hours change!

Hi all.
The owner has agreed to shift the Jives Session hours to be 6-9pm on Thursday evening. The Jives’ Coffee Lounge’s own website may not reflect this change for a while, but it’s in effect as of 1 August 2022.

Thanks!
Doug
