    I thought about doing this years ago, but don’t have the space at my house. However, it just dawned on me that I part time manage a small bar that I have full authority to use for pretty much anything I want. We’d just have to schedule a day. Which I’m kind of in charge of anyhow. It’s a small room, holds 30-40 people. We have PA set up all the time, and I can backline it easily if there’s enough interest in a jam. I have no interest in having eighteen guitars all noodling at once, and don’t understand why anyone would. But I could easily put up a drum kit, bass rig, and a couple guitar amps and we could all just rotate around and take turns.

    If there’s enough interest in this thread, we’ll take it off-board to email and get it worked out. I know we have quite a few members here in the Northeast Ohio area. I think it could be fun.

    I can't get there, but check the cheap hotels, I think Lefty is living in one of them.

    I'd come from Indiana. I can play drums, bass, and keys too.

    Do it!

    Our bass player is originally from Cleveland ( we are in VA) and in the early 2000's our band drove up a few times to play for his best friend's Summer Party ( Lake View, Lake Wood?)

    Had fun and and went to R&R HOF too!

    If Lefty shows up, keep in mind that he can't sing the blues like he used to, especially later in the evening.

    Cleveland in Winter? Any chance we could schedule this for March or April or sometime when there will not be snow on the ground? Might have a better turnout, if that matters.

    Thanks Jake for putting this together! I might be able to make a roadie next year.

    I might be able to make the drive from Pittsburgh. If I can find the bread to go, of course.

    Wish I lived close enough, too. I’d love to go to something like that. It’s a great idea!

    I'm keeping an eye on this. o_O
    I'm not much of a guitarist (full time bassist, dabbling on guitar), but am in the Cleveland area.
