Not ready for microphones, stages and crowds? This may be the place for you. “The Sandbox” is intimate, not intimidating – all acoustic and very relaxed, held in the community room of the First Unitarian Congregation of Waterloo (which is actually in Kitchener).
We (fellow jamchasers Pete & Trish & myself) were particularly interested in catching up with the hosts: Ken Brown and Jay Moore. Ken & Jay invite people to share songs, laughter – and a cup of tea. This week there were 6 players and up to 5 listeners over the course of the evening, and plenty of stories and conversations interspersed with music.
If you come to listen, Ken’s voice, accompanied by his own bass or guitar will keep you mesmerized while Jay’s original songs are engaging. You are welcome to bring your voice, instrument, covers and compositions. Don’t be surprised if you find your music enhanced by warm harmonies and brilliant bass lines.
