1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    I hate those jams, but other people seem to dig it.

    The Chicago Sound sort of recreated this at every show.

    I've not done one where all bands come up together and jam, but I've done various jams at the end when other musicians make it to the stage for some reason. That can go a lot of ways, but I normally like playing them more than watching them. The one I most enjoyed occurred at the end of a benefit. I work with a non-profit (Ben's Encore) that supports music programs in the Detroit area, which is named after Ben Borowiak, a local musician who died too soon. We hold several annual shows and at the end of our Bennyfit a few years ago we ended the show with a whole bunch of musicians on stage and in the crowd playing a song Ben wrote. It was a real lovefest and not something I'll forget. I don't have video, but someone created the gif below (I'm on the far left).

    The example in the OP was of course very symbolic and just the fact that it took place would have been more than enough for the audience, whether it worked musically or not.

    I have done some things like this with varying results. The best was last November I was the main guitarist in a Last Waltz tribute show. We ended with the core band playing Don't Do It, but the song before that we had ALL the guest vocalists and musicians come up for I Shall Be Released. It was like 20 people onstage singing it together...really special moment.

    Our singer can't make it to this weekend's gig so we are splitting the night with another band. I can pull off 3 sets but we need 4 or 5 sets. The other band does pretty much all country so it will balance out.

    Share our drum kit, 2 bass Amps, individual guitars, mic everything. The plan is they play first, then us, then they play again then us again. At the end we will do a 5 song tag, both bands.

    Here's the set list for the end.

    Blow at high dough
    Keep your Hands to Yourself A
    Honky Tonk Woman G then A
    Johnny B Goode A or E
    Brown Eyed Girl G
    Wagon Wheel A.

    We will play the first song, then call up the other guys to join us. Our bass player will switch to acoustic for the rest of the set. Our drummer will play the first 3 songs and then their drummer will finish with the last with songs. We will all take turns with the verses, trading off.

    Could be interesting, could be a shitshow lol. We shall see.
