Saxophonist, multiinstrumentalist Don Baraka and guitarist Val Leone are now hosting the Sunday
jams at Blondie's. "It's important that we keep the open, noncritical atmosphere of this historic area
jam session that's our charter."
Part of the plan is to encourage a more eclectic mix of blues, funk, onechord "Fillmore" jams, poetry,
bebop and avant garde music. There will be a drum set, Ampeg 3Pro bass rig and a small Line 6
guitar amp proved for the "back line." Vocalists wiil use a small 150 watt PA. The gear is donated by
the Hip Hermit blues band, as long as there's no conficlt in scheduling.
Leone and Baraka offer a first set at 5:15 and the jam starts at 6!
