SACRAMENTO BANJO BAND

CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Public Event Performances

You are invited to the following public events:

  • First & third Sunday Jam Sessions - Our venue for these informal jam sessions is changing. Our next session (this Sunday, January 7, 2018) will be held at Straw Hat Pizza Parlor at 2929 Mather Field Rd., Rancho Cordova, CA 95670-5417 (Mather Field Rd exit north off of Hwy 50), where we have held forth for the past several years. However, due to a request from the new owners, we will be meeting from 12:00 noon until 2:00 pm, rather than our regular time.

    On the third Sunday of this month (January 21), we will be meeting at the Round Table Restaurant at 1307 Florin Rd, Sacramento, CA 95831 (between 14th Street and Freeport Blvd., just East of Interstate 5). We will convene at 12:00 noon for lunch. Members with paid up dues will enjoy the buffet for free. This is the time for our Annual Meeting and Election of Officers, which will begin at 1:00pm in the back room. At 2:00 we will begin our normal Jam Session, for a couple of hours.

    Our plan, for the present, is to begin meeting at the Round Table on Florin Road (address above) on first and third Sundays at our normal time of 2:00 to 4:00pm, beginning in February.

    Banjo players are welcome to sit in. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the music for free. Excellent pizza and other refreshments available for purchase. Fan clips of jams.
