Calling ALL LOP musicians and vocalists!

A new group is forming  - The LOP Acoustic Jammers Group.  Our first jam is scheduled for Sun., Feb. 26, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Sports Lounge meeting room.  If you play an instrument or sing you are invited.  We will go around the room and take turns singing songs and soloing as our various skill levels permits.  All acoustic instruments are welcome as long as they are not louder than the vocals - there will be no PA.  Join us - we hope to make this a regular group here at LOP.  If you have any questions please contact Dave Atkinson at or (916) 230-1335.
