The dance music jam sessions continue in Rehoboth every Sunday night from 7-9 p.m. All are welcome!
Once a month throughout the year, the session is a Community Dance, at which we teach everything that needs teaching, depending on the experience of the dancers. The Community Dances go from 7 to 9 p.m. and are preceded by a potluck at 6 p.m.
The 2019 winter and early spring dances will be held on January 13, February 24, March 17, April 28, and May 12 along with the New Year's Eve dance on Monday, December 31, 2018. All Jammers dances are held on Sunday nights from 7 to 9 with a potluck at 6 p.m. except for the dance on December 31 which will be from 8pm to midnight with a dessert potluck.
For information or to check about cancellations, call or text Bob Elliott at 774-644-1369.
The Sunday Night Jammers are a group of (mostly) instrumental (mostly) musicians, who play (mostly) Celtic-inspired dance music. Our music is (mostly) for couple dances, such as waltzes, hambos, polkas, and schottisches.
Now, to clear up those "mostly"s:
1) Sometimes we sing...or at least some of us sing.
2) Some of us are very serious musicians, some are duffers, many are in between. We are VERY polite about each other's errors.
3) We started with English, Scottish, Irish, Canadian, and New England dance music, but we have gotten more international as the months go by.
4) After Scandinavian and German couple dances, a few Israeli line dances appeared, followed by some Greek and Balkan dances with "interesting" time signatures.
In brief, all of us have learned a lot, and we welcome others to come play, teach, learn, and, in general, have fun!
