Past Events

AUGUST 2, 2014

The Kingston Jam Festival is a gathering of musicians and friends to share their music with each other and an audience. There is a $10.00 fee per person.

This includes musicians and guests. This is a whole day event and participants are asked to commit the entire day or whatever available time they have to stick around.

Why are we asking you to stick around? It is simply to support your peers and give the performers recognition for their talents and efforts. If you are a musician you know what it is like to play before a room of empty chairs.

Lets support each other and listen and learn from each other. Identity bracelets will be provided so all performers and audience will be able to come and go throughout the event.

• There are two stages with daily performances as well as the "Circle Jam".
• Vendors will be there to sell and promote items of the music trade.
• There are bars in each room and there will be food available.
• There is plenty of parking at the rear of the building and the entrance is on the west side of the building.
• Bring your business cards, flyers, cd's, DVD's to share, sell or promote.
• If you have any old unused musical instruments to donate please bring them along to donate to the Musical Instrument Lending Library.
• Amazing high end door prizes every 1/2 hour.
