Tenchi and I met last night and came up with a couple of ideas:
Bi-monthly (to begin with) meeting, with gear to exchange techniques and teach/support each other. Maybe a jam session or live set at the end. Once a year a larger event with live sets;
Monthly Open PA night, maybe based on the various “open mic nights”. Back room of a pub, bring your own gear, 20 mins slots available on a first come/first served basis.
I really like the first idea, it could grow more into a “collective” sort, with members helping/supporting each other, giving feedbacks, tips etc.
So ideally we would need to find a place for the first meet-up, I guess a pub with a decent pa in Central would do, maybe a Sunday afternoon?
