Experience hosted by John

What you'll do

We will play music and record our jam in a professional music studio. Recording a performance with professional equipment allows you to keep a memory forever. I specialize in electronic music, including drum machines, looped synth lines, and manipulated vocals. I will bring you into my world whether you are an expert or a novice. I have many different pianos, guitars, drums, and hundreds of electronic gadgets to perform with. Throughout my many years of live shows, I've learned an incredible approach to performing live, and I look forward to sharing my expertise with you throughout the jam. You will leave the studio with an understanding of the creation process, and an experience that is usually reserved for seasoned musicians with a label to back their studio time.

I purchased this Experience as a surprise 10th anniversary gift for my husband. We were surprised to have a 3rd player round-out the jam session, which made it all the more fun! John did a great job of making both Jim & Drew feel comfortable, and giving them each some insights to help them relax into “the jam” with 2 other strangers. They both did great! Thanks for a great Chicago Experience, John! It was worth every penny. In fact, on the way back to the hotel, we talked about bringing another musician friend or two up to jam with you again. ✌🏼

John is a chill and friendly host. You get to jam on a couple of beats in a free flowing style. Highly recommended!

John was great. He made me feel at home from the very first second. We did both some jam and a couple of songs chosen from me. Great experience and an unconventional way to collect a memory from Chicago. Will definitely come back. Just be yourself, follow the flow, and let the magic happen!

I highly recommend this experience if you’re thinking about it! I booked very last minute and he replied and squeezed me on short notice. I am a trained classical musician and was on a short trip to Chicago (without my instrument on me) and wanted to try something different or out of my typically zone musically before dinner. Went in as a novice and learned quite a bit in such a short time because John was GREAT at answering any and all questions. Multiple times that I had no idea what I was doing (lol) and he carried the session and helped me find easy ways to jump back in musically. Your only limit here your creativity and willingness to experiment! Have fun!

I wanted to play and sing some specific songs rather than just “jam” and John was cool with that. It was a really fun hour.
