We are putting together a Musicians Conference with Two assigned Stages, Two OPEN STAGES and a JAM ROOM, and Vendor’s Tables to sell and promote you or your group. There will also be a series of lectures (Agenda to be confirmed with each Lecturer prior to release of topic issues and lecturers). This is not a "GiG", this is a PARTY, GATHERING, CONFERENCE, JAM SESSION, AND NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY. Meet your peers and your mentors. On lookers are welcome and encouraged to come and watch. This year’s KINGSTON JAM FESTIVAL is also open to the public. It is on August 2, 2014 from 12 noon to close and it will be at Zorba's in Kingston. We will also be raising money and instruments for the Musical Instrument Lending Library (Joe’s M.I.L.L) as well as offering excellent door prizes every 1/2 hour. The ticket price ($10.00 per person) includes: MP3 files of all recorded performances on stage.

(Applies to all ticket holders) The $10.00 registration/ticket is retained for all the draws. The $10.00 fee applies to both spectators and musicians. Bracelets will be distributed allowing all to come and go throughout the day. This will be an all-day event and there are TWO STAGES where selected registered musicians will be featured as well as a large room dedicated to the "Circle of Friends", where musicians and spectators can openly JAM together. There will also be OPEN STAGE sign-up stage time; registered performers will only be permitted to play on any stage. We are asking you to join us simply registering on-line. If we are able to raise enough money we can eliminate the $10.00 fee to the artists and afford a budget to have a live radio broadcast of the show.
