One afternoon towards the end of our Peace Corps training, Daniel Simon and I took the jeepney ride over to Jun Reputana’s guitar workshop for a visit. Most visits to Jun’s workshop usually ended with an impromptu jam session on Jun’s porch, and this one was no different. Jun and I started out by dusting off a few of the songs we played at our Peace Corps swearing in ceremony, then Jun’s son brought out his keyboard and things really started to rock. I’m hoping to get back there for another Reputana neighborhood jam sometime soon.

    Daniel put on an impromptu afternoon show for the neighborhood kids near Jun's house. He's a pretty good juggler actually.

    Jun's son came out and fired up his keyboard. It was really starting to feel like we had a band going on the porch there. Photo by Daniel Simon.

    They hung around to hear what we were going to play next, so maybe it didn't sound too bad hopefully. Photo by Daniel Simon.

    We rocked out on Jun's porch for about an hour, I'm hoping to get back there to play again soon. Photo by Daniel Simon.

    I think the little boy in the blue shirt is trying to add another item for Daniel to start juggling.

    Daniel's juggling was a tough act to follow with this crowd especially, but I borrowed one of Jun's guitars and tried to find a song they had heard before. Photo by Daniel Simon.

    Daniel really has a great knack for getting kids to be silly in front of the camera. Photo by Daniel Simon.

    After the sun set, we moved the jam session to Jun's porch. I'm not sure why it looks like I'm angry at this little kid, I think he was just asking me if I could play his favorite song. Photo by Daniel Simon.

    I pretty much followed Jun's lead, and we tore through a few songs that we had done for the Peace Corps swearing in ceremony a few days before. Photo by Daniel Simon.
