After Hours is for the career and post-career adult with a serious love of music and the time to finally enjoy reconnecting with their musical genes. It gives people a creative outlet for their music. Players enjoy the camaraderie of being in a band while working toward improving their musicianship. (ages 20-something to 90-something)
The After Hours “concept” is one of atmosphere… loose, relaxed, inviting. The different ensembles are tailored to the kind of progress the individual wants to make. Whether you want to just play, hang and enjoy yourself, work toward becoming a gigging musician, or all of the above, there’s an ensemble for everyone! Building “chops,” developing and growing repertoire, honing arrangements, the dynamics of playing in a group — and maybe even enjoying a good glass of wine — are all part of the curriculum.
