Hot Picking Every Tuesday at the Feed & Seed, Fletcher

From an Asheville Craigslist ad. What a cool local event!

Hi all, every Tuesday night we are hosting Will Ray's Mountain Jam at the "Feed And Seed" club in south Asheville. Local music legends "The Sons of Ralph" are our house band. We do a short set in order to set the mood, and then start getting people up on stage who want to sit in with the band. The objective is to "jam on" some good grooves & standards, be creative, and to have fun.

If you want to just listen, there's a lot of good picking going on. We've had musicians such as David Holt and Bobby Cochran perform, as well as members from the Hellecasters, Bill Monroe, Vassar Clements, Rhonda Vincent, Michael Nesmith, Carlene Carter and Ronnie Milsap. Sometimes the picking gets ferocious on stage!

If you want to sit in, we have a sign-up sheet which works on a first come, first served basis, so get there early because we need to be done by 9:30pm. Whether you sing, play guitar, bass, fiddle, drums or whatever - this is your chance to show Asheville what you can do, and maybe hook up with some other musicians in the process. We provide the drum kit, amps, PA and pro backup band - you provide the talent and instrument (Guitar, bass, keys, vocals etc). We'll back you up and support you to sound your best.

The "Feed And Seed" is located at 3715 Hendersonville Road in south Asheville in Fletcher, at the corner of Fanning Bridge Road, next to Sunshine Chevrolet. The Mountain Jam hours go from 7:30 - 9:30pm every Tuesday night. And admission is Freeeeeeeeeee!

Come on down and sit in, or just sit back and enjoy the music and the anything-can-happen atmosphere. This is a family type establishment, with no smoking and no alcohol. They have a nice concession stand there where you can buy bottled water and soft drinks and snacks. It's a place where the music speaks for itself.
