Reply To: Hosting a circle jam
I think it’s totally up to you or whoever is taking the lead with the group. I’ve been around a group that requires excessive amounts of hard alcohol and around folks who just show for the music time. I’ve been to a person’s home and seen them hosted at a bar or coffee shop or restaurant or a campground/park. They are doing one here at a park by the river and everyone does their own thing: picnic, etc. At the river they often have a signature group that plays a show and afterwards small groups form all over to jam. Check out the fiddle festivals. They are places where folks just walk around the grounds and gather and jam.
