Hey guys. Atlanta is a great music community but yet we have little to no activity on this board. We have e-mail all the people we have on our JP Folks Altanta Chapter e-mail but are getting little responses as well.

We need to start working the Atlanta area. There is so much going on and a lot of great musicians.

Let's get a chapter meeting scheduled. If you have not received an e-mail from us, please e-mail us and we will put you on the list.

Tammy and amber

Hey Tammy & Amber;
I wonder if we should focus more outside the metro Atl area. There is a converted church in Winder called 106 west(www.106west.com) that has just started an open mike on thursday nights with a $3.00 cover since there is a performer after the open mike. I intend to start going there. i'll keep looking for other possible venues in the Athens area too.

James

Hey James. I checked out 106West and it looks like they are no longer doing the open mic due to lack of interest. I e-mailed them and told them that we has just heard for it thanks to you and wanted to know if they would reconsider doing another one - we could try to get jpfolks to join in and make it a success.

yeah!!! That is a great idea!. I didn't go last thursday because I wasn't feeling well, but I intend to go next week. Thom is a great guy with a fantastic venue that just needs a little help with publicity. It could be a natural place for jpf atl. to pitch in and make a difference. He has a great sound set up, and can also video performances.

Hello. everyone. We have been trying to get a chapter meeting up for over a year now. The first meeting we held only Tammy, amber and James showed up.

I know that Atlanta has a huge music market and I know that we could really help one another so let's say we get this chapter going.

I have sent numerous e-mails to the JP folsk people and very few if any ever respond back.

Let's set a meeting up for the end of November. Amber and I are going to the JP folks Music awards show and the TAXI Road rally - we can bring back some great info.

Any suggestions?

It would be great to have a meeting towards the end of November. Since we are going to the JP Folks music awards and then the TAXI Road Rally we could bring back valuable info for all those unable to attend. Please spread the word about jpfolks. My e-mail list is extremely small for the Atlanta area and I know there are tons of jpfolks members. If you know of anyone that wishes to be on the list, please have them e-mail us at FiveStarTalent@bellsouth.net or come to the boards and e=mail me from a post.

My computer also crashed and I have lost some e-mails - so much for backup - it didn't work -

Please count me in on any get together that's planned. I just found this board and I'm an Atlanta singer-songwriter who would enjoy getting together with others. If you're looking for a venue, I suggest Sweet Java Brown - a cool little coffee place in Kirkwood where I've played before and many other locals have as well.

Hey darin. Where is the coffee shop located? How far from downtown Atlanta. If we can get it for a night that would be great. We could have a meeting and then do an acoustic round.


let me know what dates we have available and I will send out an e-mail.

Sweet Java Brown is at:
1994 Hosea L. Williams Dr.
Atlanta, GA 30317
404.377.9223
http://www.sweetjavabrown.com/

It's a tiny little place with probably only seating enough for 15-20 people, but it's been a friend to local songwriters.

That sounds like a great idea. I sent you an e-mail regarding a Dec. meeting.

If anyone did not get my e-mail regarding a december meeting please respond asap so I can add you to the list. We would like to meet in December. Please give me your avail and we will check dates with some local places.

Hey Tammy,
I didn't get an e-mail from you, so I'll give you my addy again; bratsman51@juno.com. We need to get something going!
I am ready to help in any way I can to get the chapter moving. Do you know if there is a jpf poster or brochure template that we could use?
I have microsoft word and publisher on my computer. I could make brochures or newsletters for our chapter.
Let me know what I can do to help!
James

thanks James - got it and put it in my address book. whenever I send e-mails in the future, i am going to also post here on the board.

So, now I am going to set up a meeting and just hope that everyone can attend.

I am having someone check the java coffee shop and see what their avail is. Then I will let you know.

In the meantime, anytime Amber's band performs at a venue - like Midnighters this Sat. - I tell all the other bands about jp folks and will give them a little flier about it.

There are so many Atlanta musicians, we just need to get them to understand how jpfoks can help.

Hey Amber,
My name is Jeff O'Kelley and I am a member of the Tampa Chapter of JPF. Although I live in Tampa, I perform around the southeast on a regular basis. I also lived in the north metro Atlanta area for 14 years, so I do still feel a connection to the area.
If you don't mind helping out, I have an upcoming show in Atlanta and could use some member support, if at all possible. I've included the information below if you can help at all. I would truly appreciate any assistance that you could offer. I would also be more than happy to return the favor if you ever want to escape the winter weather and come to Florida for some gigs. Thanks for your help.

take care,
jeff [Linked Image]

Show:
