Our Premier Set is This Monday, February 26, 2018!

Be the first to see how it all works. . . BYOG! . . . (Bring Your Own Guitar!) 

Demo on How it Works

We want to upgrade this video demo.

So . . .we will be adding photos and video from our first jams at Lestat’s Coffee House.

 

 

What Is a JamInTheMix?

It’s kind of a cross between Karaoke and an Open Mic.  It’s simular to Karaoke but much better.  With Karaoke you sing with an imaginary band. . . in a JamInTheMix you sing and play with a real band!

 

It’s better because you can play with real instruments that we provide.  If you are not a musician who sings or plays an instrument you can lip sync, rap, beat box, dance or play a cajon.  

It’s better because you can bring your own guitar and jam in the audience.  

 

It’s better because you never have to sit thru 5 minutes of torture listening to some drunk singing out of tune. . . . (and then having to be forced to clap and pretend that you really liked it).

 

It’s more fun because we give a person in the crowd to be our talent scout.  Their job is to roam the stage and the crowd and find the talent.  They have a wireless mic and when they hear a good singer or player they mic them so that everybody can hear. 

 

Our exclusive Video Chord Charts© allow non-musicians, Pro’s and everyone in-between to Jam.  We make a party out of jamming!

How a Jam Works

  • The setting can be an Open Mic, Karaoke Bar, country club restaurant, Church, wedding, a party in a home or event 

  • The DJ/Producer and Band members are amplified. . . people in the audience are acoustic

  • The DJ/Producer gives a wireless mic to someone from the audience and tells them they get to play “Talent Scout”.  Their job is to mic the talent on stage or even in the audience!

  • The DJ/Producer loads a music video in deck 1 that has our Video Chord Charts© overlayed with the lyrics and the guitar chords.

  • In deck 2, the DJ/Producer syncs up either a version minus the lead vocal or just a synced beat so that when that deck is played, you only hear the live instruments.

  • Now we are ready to have a Jam!

What Makes it Different?

  • First – it has never been done like this before – it’s like a new game that one can do at a party

  • The audience doesn’t just sit there and listen or dance to a song they’ve heard a thousand times – they actually get in to the music – see the actual lyrics, play the chords, feel it and become part of the song

  • You don’t have to be a great musician to jam – just be able to sing, beatbox, rap expressively, play a simple beat or be able to read guitar chords

Practice to be The Best

  • People can practice the jams days before the party by downloading or playing our online sets (this is coming soon).  That way they can prepare before the event and feel confident when they perform.

  • The goal is to give the great, and even the person who is not a musician, a framework to perform and an incentive to get better as a singer and player!

notkaraoke

Here’s why it is NOT karaoke:

 

      . . . .  In karaoke you sing a long solo, usually by yourself with

                      an imaginary band – you can be unbearable to outstanding

      . . . . With JamInTheMix you sing or play maybe 15 – 30 seconds with a real band

                     who jams with you

      . . . . The BAND chooses the songs from their music sets

      . . . . The BAND chooses the people from the crowd to jam with

      . . . . There is ALWAYS A BEAT for people to dance. . . . most of the songs

                     are up-beat and geared toward getting a crowd moving

      . . . . You sing from a chord chart with lyrics, the kind a band will use – not

                     highlighted lyrics

      . . . . If you are a singer, it’s the next step up from singing karaoke

      . . . . It makes you a better singer and performer because you are playing &

                      singing with professionals!
