Anyone else interested in new Bluegrass/Old Time jam in Shawnee???

I am thinking about organizing a Bluegrass/Old Time Jam in Shawnee. JoCo Ks does not really have as much of that as the Mo side. I suspect there would be some interest. Please chime in and let me know. email me at scoutks @ gmail . com

Shawnee Kansas is where I am talking about.

RE: Shawnee Jam

Hi Gary.
I know about 10 guys including myself that might be interested. We gave up on Bentley's sidewalk jam for the year and are currently looking for a host. Please be forewarned, although bluegrass & classic or old country is very strong.. an occasional 50's, 60's' or 70's tune might pop up from a totally different genre. ..and we like bringing something different to the table. Everybody walks away with a balanced diet. All acoustic of course.

3rd Saturday Jam


If you are interested in some fairly pure old time/contra dance type fare then I recommend the 3rd Saturday jam that meets at PTs Coffee House at 87th & Lackman (behind Cedar Ridge Church) from 10:00a to 12:00p. There is actually a group set up for the jam here: .

It is mostly instrumental old time tunes but there is also a good bit of Bluegrass and BG gospel played.

I plan on checking that one

I plan on checking that one out. Thanks for the info. But I am still thinking of doing the jam in addition to that.
My guess is, that somethime after the first of the year for a start. I am looking into a location at my lodge. If I can get it free, it's on.

Update on Jam in Shawnee-Old Time

It looks like I will go through with starting a jam in Shawnee. The plan is to focus on Old Time. I have a space located that would work great. I just have to synchronize with them on available days and times. When I get that determined I will post the info as well as set up a group here.

Jammin in Shawnee

was a blast. Prior to moving to Olathe, I loved the old M.M. jams.

Hope to make it back in the future, with my ukuleles, harmonici and perhaps another ventriloquist based song.
