  1. Back in the 80’s we had the Southern Nevada Bluegrass Music Society (still have the t-shirt). We’d meet every month or so w ~150 people, 100+ would bring an instrument (or three). It was a big time. Does this group have it’s roots in that one?

    • Hi Russ. We are one in the same! Still going strong after 40 years. We get together more often now and have lots of great things happening. Would love to have you rejoin and come on out!

    Still meeting on Tuesday?

  3. Hi, this is Joe Kahl. I am a board member of the SNBMS and I am looking for volunteers to help out the at the upcoming Logandale Fall Festival.

    It will be at the Clark County Fairgrounds in Logandale on October 21-23, logandalefallfestival.com. I need volunteers to take care of the RV camping gate and the Dry (no frills) camping gate. We will operating the “Green Room” that is used by the Bluegrass bands performing at the festival. This will entail keeping the room stocked with drinks and food; keeping things picked up and clean. The society will be putting on a Bluegrass Instrument Petting Zoo! This will be open to the kids to come in and learn about the instruments and try their hand at playing them. Obviously we will need volunteers who play and are comfortable teaching kids. If you have an extra instrument that you would like to let kids practice on, we could sure use them.

    Finally, the society will be hosting a Bluegrasser’s Ball on Saturday night after the fair shuts down for the night. It will be a two hour affair with an hour of Contra dancing and an hour of jamming (with the bands from the festival). This will be an event for the campers, bands, vendors and BBQ contestants. Some of the volunteers will be compensated with day passes to the festival for their participation. All volunteers will be very appreciated and will help to ensure a successful festival and hopefully more Fall Festivals that feature a Bluegrass Festival. If you are interested in heading up one of these activities or a portion of one of them, please let me know. You can reach me at 702 293-4714 or patchworkjoe@gmail.com. Thanks!

  4. Hi, I live in Bullhead City, AZ, across from Glitter Gultch…Laughin NV.

    At age 67 I had a senior moment, forgot my age and picked up a mandolin….so, I’m a beginner.

    Question, I understand you have Tuesday & Thrusday night jams…anything for beginners??? If so could you provide me with info on where and when.

    Thanks, Bert

    • Hi Bert,

      There are two weekly jams here in Vegas although neither are run by the SNBMS. The Tuesday one is more of an anything goes one and the Thursday one is more strictly bluegrass/old time. You’ll need to check them out via our Facebook page however because I believe the Tuesday night one is now on Monday nights and the Thursday night one is on Friday. I can’t keep up!

    Thank you for any help! 920-993-6985

    • Hi Cinda,

      You’re best bet that weekend will be the Friday night Jam at 6 PM – 8 PM at Mountain Crest Park 4701 North Durango Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89129. Other than that the club doesn’t have anything going.
