Volunteer to Play
Members who are comfortable performing in public are encouraged to volunteer for performances (aka ‘playouts’). These informal performance events are an excellent venue to enhance your musical growth. The set lists are comprised of tunes and songs played at the monthly SCVFA Jam. Experienced musicians volunteer to lead the group by selecting tunes and scheduling rehearsals.
Have fun playing to appreciative audiences. Join our merry group of musicians and receive notifications about “playout” opportunities. No obligation! No pay! However, you might get a free meal from time to time!
We’ve played for many different groups including business and community events, private parties, school events, and retirements and residential care facilities. Recent events include:
