Every Sunday 1:30 to 4 pm Free, Open Jammm...bring your singing voice and instrument! Play for an audience that listens!
Musicians often play their own compositions or old standers that all can sing. It has become an institution in South Rockland and we usually have 50 to 75 attendees. We serve coffee & cookies and our audience is always attentive, singing along, humming or tapping their toes.
