It was announced earlier this week that Dean Ween is set to host an Invitational Jam every Wednesday night in New Hope, PA. The Invitational is a gift to any hungry or inspiring musicians, eager to jam with a hero or just sharpen their chops.
The invitational will be run by a house band consisting of members of Parliament-Funkadelic, Ween (the entire band), Vincent Martell of Vanilla Fudge, and many other notable musicians of rock’s elite over the last three decades.
The jam will take place at John and Peter’s on Main St. in New Hope because it is the oldest continuously operated live music venue in the U.S. Ween have called John and Peter’s home since forming a collective in 1984. The duo grew up in New Hope and have called it home ever since.
This opportunity calls musicians of all skill levels to play original or cover music backed by a band of elite musicians. Admission for the event is free.
Melchiondo said in a statement, “Nothing beats touring and playing music live in front of a hungry audience of music lovers. The fan that doesn’t have other like-minded musicians to jam with doesn’t get this experience. Hence, we present The Invitational.”
