Like the music we're playing? Want to try some of it yourself, or play with us next time? Most of the tunes we play are up on our repertoire page. If you want some people to play this stuff with, talk to me (jeff at freeraisins dot com), and I'll put you in contact with other people who are learning and would like musical company.
