Once a month, a varied group of musicians (a motley crew of misfits?) from all walks of life gather together for “the BACCA jam”; an informal song-swap style event for musicians of all skill levels that’s sponsored by the Babylon Arts Council (BACCA). Anyone attending one of these Sunday afternoon get-togethers will likely witness a rambunctious, non-stop, often great (sometimes a train-wreck!) flurry of songs both popular and obscure that range from folk to rock, country, pop, 60’s, along with some wonderful original material.  Well, the BACCA folks have asked us to pull together the best of what we do (not that we ever do anything the same way twice) and polish things up for a fundraising show/concert.   So, please join us for:

Jammin Tonight Featuring The BACCA Jammers on Wednesday, May 28th, 2008. Doors open at 7:30pm. The Rainbow Center, 293 Buffalo Avenue, Lindenhurst.   Donation $10 per person (includes free coffee and cake).  All proceeds support the Babylon Arts Council, a 501C3 not-for profit organization. Donations are tax deductable.   Please join us for a great night of music!  Let me know if you would like to purchase tickets in advance.   The BACCA Jammers are: Lorraine Bettica, Frank Cavalone, Mike Christian, Susan Cohen, Lynn Dunn, Todd Evans, Lora Kendall, Lou Malfi, Steve Robinson, Gary Schoenberger, Gary Settoducato, Bob Young
