Denton Meet & Greet + Jam Session @ the Denton Arts Council PAAC

On April 25th, in partnership with the Denton Arts Council, we hosted another get together for our musician community.  We had previously hosted a similar session in September of 2018.  Follow this link to see pictures from September:  Click Here   The event was attended by many fine musicians, including faculty and students at UNT, hence the music was great as a result.  We thank all those that attended and the Greater Denton Arts Council for hosting us once again.

Denton Meet and Greet + Jam Session

Our meet and greet back in September was attended by long time members as well as new faces and students.  It was a real pleasure to meet and hear the new faces.  We really appreciate the Denton Arts Council partnering with us and providing use of their Patterson-Appleton Center for our event.  We are continuously trying to build new community partnerships to foster more awareness of our organization but also to open new doors for our musician community to grow. The next Meet & Greet + Jam Session event is in the planning stages at this time but we are excited about new location possibilities for our next one in the Dallas area.  For information on our next event you can visit our website, make sure you get our newsletters or join our FaceBook group here:https://www.facebook.com/groups/235616120446970/

Carlos Averhoff Jr. (Sunday August 5th)
