The Guild was founded to provide fellow musicians a place to forge musical bonds, try out material, work on technique, develop ensemble skills, and most of all, relax, have fun, and play music. Membership is by invitation. The focus is mostly on jazz, but other types of music often creep into the sessions. Most of us have been playing professionally for many years and we draw from that experience without judgement. As the great Duke Ellington once said, "If it sounds good, it is good". Drums and a PA are provided, and easy access to the rehearsal space make it possible to focus on relaxing and playing. We hope that new connections will evolve and growing musical skills will be nurtured.
