John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Squidlips Jam

Squidlips Jam

Every Thursday, the JQB band hosts an open jam at Squidlips Bar and Grill in Melbourne, Fl. On Thursday 8/8/2013, there were 12 musicians all coordinated by John Quinlivan (JQB) and everyone was a pro. You couldn't ask for a better sound and the music was diverse. That's me in the middle with my "cool" shades playing my Blues Harp (harmonica). There are so many talented musicians and singer-songwriters out there, it's a shame that most people only see and hear what's on American Idol or the Voice. Most of the musicians last night played for nothing because music is in their soul. The next time you see a tip jar, put something in it, go up to the musician and tell him or her how much you enjoyed their show. You will both be happier because of it.

John - very cool shades! This is a great way for people to see just how much fun and laid-back your neat area is! We've got a place here on the island called "Up the Creek Pub" that has the same kind of vibe! Love the name of the place too - very evocative :-)

John, you know I'd show up just for the name Squidlips.  Looks like our kind of place if we get out of town this summer.

Thanks Susan - It took me a while to find those shades....polarized and not too dark. I'll bet you have a good time Up the Creek :-)

When I first read your title line, the picture I had in my mind was some exotic delicacy that Cocoa Beach citizens put on their toast.  I'm relieved to find out I was wrong. . .tsk, tsk!

John- good to see you here.  I agree with you... there are so many good musicians out there who just haven't had the exposure of American Idol or being groomed by a Disney channel.  My brother plays in a band in Houston and loves it.

Jean - No they don't but everyone else in the bar does :-)

Myrl - I did that on purpose to shamefully get more viewers. I can provide more photos of patron's lips if you like :-)

Kathy - The only way to make it these days is to market yourself online and get a following. Then you can sell your songs on Reverb Nation or CD Baby.

John, That does look like everyone was having a great time!  It is true there are some great, talented people out there who are not famous and are not on American Idol.

Tony and Darcy - Everyone can download a lot of music for free these days. The pay day only comes when you are famous enough to pack 'em in at a concert.
