Dance Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall
Aug 19 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dance  Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall | Rehoboth | Massachusetts | United States

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.

All Jammers dances are held on Sunday nights from 7 to 9 with a potluck at 6 p.m.

For information or to check about cancellations, call Bob Elliott at 774-644-1369 or email him at bobolinkelliott@yahoo.com.

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!

Enjoy a sampling of summer’s bounty from local R.I. farms, seafood, Whalers Beer, and more!
