We are at the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the resort towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The attractions are endless and fit for every style of vacationer: camping, hiking, cabin rentals, dinner shows, amusement parks, golf, museums, shopping, restaurants, zip-lines, horse-back riding, and so on. There are 10,000s of hotel rooms in the area. And it’s the home of Dolly Parton and Dollywood! 🙂

Hi, this get together looks like a lot of fun! does the event end at a specific time? Or does it end when we all run out of steam?
Frank Podlaha on June 1, 2015 at 9:29 pm said:
Yes, pretty much until everyone runs out of stream. Last year they made it 6 hours streaming. I think this year will go longer. 🙂

Hi everyone! I just made reservations for June and me. Can’t wait! (Well, actually, I’ll have to, won’t I?) I’ll plan on bringing my guitar and my bass. Question: Is there a “house” system that one can plug into, or should we bring our own amplifiers for electrified instruments? Or is the question irrelevant if the facility isn’t all that big?
See you on the Jelly!
Frank Podlaha on June 29, 2015 at 5:29 pm said:
Yes, Win – we’ll have amps, mics, etc all setup for you to use.
Can’t wait to meet you guys. 🙂

I know it will depend on people count, can you give an example of time per person allowed play time? Also how will order be given as to who plays when? How long will the evening run?
Frank Podlaha on July 25, 2015 at 10:27 am said:
We haven’t created the set list yet, but we’ll plan on each performer to do about a 20 minute set. Once we run thru the entire roster, we’ll let everyone get a chance to play some more, double up with jams, and just have a good ole musical time! We are scheduled from 3p to 9p, but we have the facility until mid-night.

Found another great resource website for planning a vacation in the Smokies! It’s http://www.SmokyMountains.com. I’ve added the link to the post, too. ~frankie

In regards to posting to blogs,how do we post in general? Also would like to comment on StreetJelly meet up 2015. All though it would make for a great trip and to meet everyone in person, like most I find that it is hard to pass up. What would be the possibilities of doing a state by state meet in the future? Thanks for giving us a place to meet as it is on SJ live.

Hi Ron, posting in the comments is open to everyone. Posting an article needs to be submitted to us directly, first (email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
State by State meetup would awesome. Zoiks, a Jelly road tour! We’ll put that on the big to-do list! 🙂

I almost made it happen, but the timing didn’t work out. Maybe next time. We’ll be there in heart and watching on the Jelly!
Frank Podlaha on September 12, 2015 at 11:42 am said:
We have plenty of room and the food is ordered. So if you still want to RSVP, that’s cool. We’d still love to have you visit! ~frankie
