Eran Magen, the Philadelphia Tango JaM’s founder, created websites to make our tango music accessible to you! For ease of ‘Tango JaM’-ming, it may be best to print all of the music sheets for your instrument’s key and place them in a binder. Then you’ll have it all, always!
We practice and have fun! We start by going over the songs’ basic melodies, and then we improvise around them. People are also welcome to come to the studio while we JaM it out!
An email blast is sent to the musicians on our mailing list, which has the evening’s tentative playlist (about 3 or 4 tango songs).
The JaM itself (6-8pm) is just for us – and anybody who wanders in to listen. If we feel good about the songs we were playing, we’ll often play during the milonga later that night, usually around 10:30 PM, as The People’s Tango Orchestra. There’s no obligation to stay for this later performance, but we’d love to have you 🙂
