All of our events can be found on our meetup page here
Second Sundays Monthly at the Rail “Wake and Bake” from noon until 4pm. (directions/parking) These are breakfast/lunch potlucks and an open jam + song circle. Primarily strings. Light drums cool, to compliment the jam. There is no official jam leadership, and everyone gets to participate! Potluck “participation” optional. Just come and eat and don’t sweat it Or, bring something amazing. Musicians and music lovers welcome. You do not need to be a musician to come! There is no charge or donation requested. *sometimes people will pay to reserve a space at Rail on the River or one of our other upcoming events, if you see that happening, don’t sweat it!
Third Wednesday Supper Songs at Shelley’s
Third Wednesday evenings we gather at 7pm at Shelley’s for a potluck and music performed live at Shelley’s house – up close and personal!. Bring a homemade side if you can. If you can’t, wine or beer or other to share. We ask everyone who can throw $10 into the musicians tip jar. If you can’t afford, that’s fine, we’d rather you came anyway! If you can afford more, we really appreciate it! While exposure is great, we prefer to honor our artists with cash that can pay rent, bills, etc.
Occasional Rail Shows – usually Saturday Night House Concerts at P&Ks.
Something special. 2 or 3 times a year we’ll bring in a great band to play for us live.
remember… “What happens at supper club, stays at supper club!”
No money to the house for house concerts but we ask for sliding scale donations ($10 and up) that go 100% directly to the band.Rail on the River and Arts and Jams Camp!
We do two musical campouts – One the last weekend in June and the other the last weekend in August. Both at a private campground about 15 minutes north of Longmont. These run from Thursday afternoon to Sunday.
Rail on the River Festival + Rail on the River Arts and Jams Camp
In June we book some great musical acts, do interactive art, light-hearted ceremony, a big potluck on Thursday night and a wake-n-bake onsite Sunday morning. Breakfast jam with pickin, coffee, toast, and spreads each morning. There’s lots of campground pickin and celebration of the amazing community we have together. Bring your stringed instruments, your singing voice, bacon, and a smile.
In August, we do all the things we do in June, but no scheduled lineup! It’s a big music jam and arts fest campout party! There are instrument, music & art workshops, bands created on-the-spot, opportunities to play in front of others, games, latenight campground craziness – it’s like BAND CAMP for grownups!
