60 Party Live Music Videos!  

The 60 Party included a unique gathering of great musicians jamming for a few hours on the cabin deck, overlooking the water.  Fortunately, we came away with some really cool audio/video recordings, most of which are shared via the links below, by song, in no particular order.

Although completely unrehearsed, due to the excellence of our musician friends, the music was great.  We all enjoyed the jams greatly, and were/are very grateful to our friends for jamming for us so well and for so long, and for all it took to make it happen. 

These live recordings have pretty darn good sound quality, often excellent (and have been a lot of fun to listen to repeatedly in pulling this page together!). With the camcorder sitting on a table, mostly without supervision, mostly from a single angle, the recordings periodically include people walking by, talking, etc., and the view simply wasn't wide enough to include all of the musician most of the time.  But they are cool to see and really sound quite good!

Please note that we are trying to protect people's privacy. If you were recorded and have any reservations about the recording beling posted/shared, please let me (SG) know. All comments are welcome. [After going back and forth a lot, wanting to post as much as possible of the videos/music, always concerned about people's privacy, an adquately conservative (while still sharing) solution is to substitute audo-only recordings for video recordings where there is any potential concern about (someone's privacy). In any case, if you do see anything that concerns you at all for yourself or others, please do let (me) know via ("Contact Us").

Following are (almost all of) the videos from the 60 Party, with Jeff, Rick S, Paul I, Greg M and/or Danny F (the XBHS Jam Band II, as it were...). Just keep scrolling down and you'll be able to hear (and usually see) the jams, should be about 25+ tracks.   [The large files may or may not load very slowly for you, but they do work great on cell-phones, etc.  The first couple are short recordings; if they don't work for you, the others might not either...PLEASE let (me) know if they don't work for you [so (I) can try to figure out what to do...].

(Clicking on either the photo, or the underlined red text to the right of it, should work).]

Here is an eastern-sounding, almost haunting, version of the classic Blind Faith tune, with many great moments (but some issues, so this is the semi-controversial abridged version; probably my favorite recording from the event), Can't Find My Way Home:
