RiverTunes JAMboree 2022 June

Our Summer JAMboree June 10th, 11th & 12th

We so look forward to playing lots of music and being together again!

Gratitude and Reflection

WOW! Thanks to everyone who participated in our Spring Jamboree 2022! It was so wonderful to see so many of you come together as we continue to move through the pandemic that has made things difficult for us these last 2 years. The campout, the workshops, the socializing, and, of course, all the incredible music made by all of you in the jams that you created or that our jam guides helped facilitate, brought love, laughter, connection, and tears of joy in a weekend that we’ll long remember.

Learning
We learned a lot and will keep making each JAMboree experience better and better. Like any new venture, there were bumps in the road. We will strive to continue to put your needs, interests, and desires first. We do this for our RiverTunes Family, so your feedback has been wonderful and really helpful to the JAMboree CampQuarters.
 
RiverTunes 2022?
Many have asked if our mothership camp, RiverTunes, will happen this summer. With a heavy heart, we will be postponing again because of an uncertain summer ahead and the reluctance of a measurable amount of the RiverTunes Family to commit.  We have reserved our facility at the “Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School” near Morro Bay for July 2023. The RECOS Administration understands the difficult decision we’ve had to, once again, make and are enthusiastic for our RiverTunes return. So meanwhile…
 

Summer JAMboree 2022!
Registration for our summer wing ding opens soon (we will send out a “We’re Open!” announcement). The dates are 3 full days; Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 10, 11, and 12. Monday the 13th will be a pack and leave at your leisure day.

Highlights; more workshops, earlier and shorter evening concerts 5pm to 7pm, vehicle camping in a new “VC Village” that will be in the orchard area connected to where the tent camping will be. The walnut trees will be fully leafed and provide great shade for tenters.

RiverTunes Summer JAMboree 2022 - Info

  June 10th, 11th, & 12th  

WHAT;  A 3 day Music JAM campout at Northern California’s premiere “Beer Farm” just outside of the town of Dixon. Ruhstaller is a working farm that grows its own hops, then brews, and pours a wide variety of beers…all on their 47-acre spread. Free-range chickens, sheep, live roots, folk & world music, and dogs with their well-behaved humans, are all welcome! You heard right – responsible dog owners bring their dogs to the Hop Farm. Tent camp under the shade of the 35-acre walnut orchard, or lodge in a vehicle camper. Any vehicle camping will accompany a small additional fee. There is limited space and it’s 1st come/1st served. Space for large motorhomes is extremely limited. You may also reserve a local Airbnb or motel, stay with local family/friends, etc,… There are three towns within 10 miles of the farm. Dixon, Davis, and Vacaville. If you’re a local, you may elect to go home each evening as a (Day-Tripper). 

WHERE; 6686 Sievers Rd. Dixon, CA 95620 (right off I-80 between Dixon & Davis). The Brewery is open to the public during its regular hours and we’ll have plenty of designated areas for Jamming!

HOW; Schedule – A wide variety of workshops will be held each day. Sessions include instruction on the art of jamming and playing well with others, in addition to songwriting, singing, ukulele, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and percussion. There will be community drumming, fun yoga / Qi Gong movement sessions, vocal wake-ups, and a Morning Choir. Afternoons will include more workshops and facilitated jams in different styles. Spontaneous workshops are encouraged. The evening social dinner break will include a different concert each night. More jamming takes place by the fire pit and any of the many campsites spread out in the orchard and around the farm. Tons of fun is what we’re after. 

FOODBreakfast – you have a choice to opt-in on a wonderful All You Can Eat, Breakfast Buffet at EATWELL ORGANIC FARM – 2 miles down the road. Our friend Lorraine Walker will offer freshly laid eggs, homemade biscuits, fresh tomatoes, fruit, and yogurt – all grown and prepared on the premises. Coffee and or tea. No meat, but dairy and eggs. Enjoy your meal there or get it to go. $15.00 Venmo-ed in advance.  

FOOD- Lunch & Dinner -There will be delicious on-site home-style Mexican food by a family with great well-kept recipes plus an additional rotating second homestyle food option.

FOOD – BYOF – Of course, you may want to bring food and beverages of your choice from home, as well.

There are flush toilets & drinking water, but no showers.  We think 2 days w/out a shower is doable for most folks.  😉

COST; $175. per person.  If you can pay a little more, it will help bring in some folks who write to us requesting a little financial assistance. Thank You!  Your $175. fee ensures a campsite and helps us cover our expenses.       

Cancellation Policy; You may cancel for any reason. If you cancel before midnight May 26th, we’ll refund all but $25 and Eventbrite  fees of your payment, or all but $75 if you cancel on or after May 27th.
