Message From Omid (via Facebook).

So I've decided to call it a day with the the jam session at Offshore 44. Between not being able to pay musicians and getting shouted at by drunkards who wanted to hear AC/DC it just became more work than it was worth. Fear not though. A new venue is in the pipelines and until that is sorted out I suggest having the jams in my new house, which has ample space for many musicians, as well as ample parking. Plus this way we don't have to deal with the pesky audience. The first rule of Jam Club is: Tell Everyone About Jam Club. You can guess the second rule. Also, bring your own booze, amps and friends, and you're perfectly welcome to come just to listen. The first session will be this Thursday, so come up to the Newcastle General Hospital and then call me (07963 398202) for directions.
Omid.
