Come visit us at our monthly jam session on the 3rd Sunday of each month. (**except on statutory holidays).
We meet at the Sidney Shoal Centre, 10030 Resthaven Drive, Sidney, BC (see website). Bring your accordion if you play it, or just yourselves if you don’t! Our jam session starts about 2:30 pm. Guest performers welcome; just let us know so we can schedule you in. Usually 3 songs or 10 minutes per player, so everyone gets a chance to play. A lot of fun and great music. See you there.
