JAM: “Funding Artists Musical Dreams"

"JAM" with us in the Koret Auditiorum this Saturday, February 26th, at a musical showcase hosted by Tia Donyale. As leader of the fledgling JAM organization, Donyale is partnering with local businesses and non-profit foundations to nurture and promote new artists, between the ages of 18-24. JAM’s goals are to provide musicians with performance venues, networking opportunities, and support in the form of musical training, instruments and gift certificates.

This event will feature special performances by modern dancers, acoustic guitarists, conscious lyricists, and stunning guest vocalists. Other highlights will include an open-mic forum, a networking opportunity for ambitious young artists and the presentation of support awards to five pre-selected artists.

For more information about the event or to join us on stage, please contact Tia Donyale at: (415) 505-9679, or e-mail:
