Info about the Mary O’s Virtual Session:
Until March 2020, we’d met every Thursday night at Mary O’s in Manhattan’s East Village. When the pandemic started, we moved the session online, meeting virtually twice a week! In August 2020, after 40 sessions, we took a break, followed by five CTARS sessions (“Common Tunes At Reasonable Speeds”) in September and October. Now we’re back to our original session format, with spectacular leaders and special guests each Thursday at 8pm EST.
We’re hoping you will be doing from home what we usually do at Mary O’s. Have a bite to eat, enjoy a drink, and play tunes with us! If you’re playing along at home, we recommend that you do so with headphones on…makes it much easier. Don’t forget to interact with fellow session-goers in the live chat!
We send an email each with with tune sets to practice for the session, as well as info about upcoming leaders and events. Sign up here:
Tune Supply t-shirts, sweatshirts, and merch are available as well, whoohoo…
