Dagney's Coffee Shop Bluegrass Jam

Dagney's Coffee Shop Bluegrass Jam was today. It was a great jam with pretty much an even distribution of instruments. The coffee shop people were very nice and a lot of patrons came in a listened. The Bakersfield Californian sent a photographer over to do a sound-slide presentation on their web page. Unfortunately I was to busy wrestling with my old banjo tuners to get the players names, but they were to involved in picking to do much interviewing. I came over with Lloyd Reading, whom used to play the old Blackboard in the late 1930.

Here is the notice:

Hey folks,
Just a reminder up the upcoming Dagney's Jam this saturday at 2:00 p.m. We held our first Dagney's Jam last saturday. I really had a great time and even though the jam was small the tunes and the music were great. Thanks to Dagney's for opening up their doors for this jam. We are not sure at this point if this is going to be an every saturday jam or every other saturday. Come on down and enjoy the tunes or help make the tunes. Jeff Russinsky will be hosting the jam and you can call Jeff @ 364-1553 or 324-7604 for more info.
