As a membership-based organization, the JCGS relies on annual dues ($20) to continue operating. We encourage all people who attend meetings, either to play or to listen, to pay dues. If everybody who attended did so, we could generate at least $700-$800 annually before any other fundraising. We’re currently up to $400 for the year.

See the evolving new website ( for videos of performances of the last meetings. Over time, the website will also include additional information like ongoing gigs by members.
