King Cong Brewing Co - Acoustic Jam
King Cong Brewing Company's acoustic jam is one of the most interesting jams in Sacramento. Hosted by Winko Ljizz of the Acoustic Sanctuary, the event welcomes instrumentalists and singers of all skill levels.
The proficiency level varies from simple folk music to sophisticated progressive jazz. An extensive repertoire of over 1,000 tunes (lyrics & chords) is show on a big screen TV for anyone who wishes to play along. All charts are in C concert pitch. A small 4 channel PA is used for balance and EQ, but no other amps are allowed in an effort to rein in volume. The event focuses on mentoring rather than performing.
Guest bands may host a set if they are willing to accommodate participants at the jam. If you want others to play along with your songs on the big screen TV, email Winko and he can work out the details with you.
This event has no signups: just bring yourself and an instrument if you have one.
If you don't have an instrument, several unusual house instruments are provided:
- Upright bass (5 nylon strings with high C)
- Classical guitar (3/4 size)
- Kids toy piano (3 octaves)
- Trumpet (key of C)
- Violin (5 string)
