”Fredericton and the St. John River region is home to a long standing tradition of music and performing arts and River Jam celebrates this home grown talent with a full roster of local bands”, said Pete Stafford, chairperson of River Jam. We’re very happy to be able to support special musical projects and community groups, all while celebrating the amazing talent in the region with this event.”

With River Jam’s Band Connection program, bar owners and event and festival planners are invited  to attend so they can connect with performers and scout talent for their venues and events.  “It’s been very successful” said Stafford. “Bands that play at River Jam are getting booked around town.  This is what we want to see, especially where all of the bands play for free for River Jam- they deserve the chance to share their talents at other venues throughout the year”.

They still have a few reserved tables available for the ballroom. Tables are $200 for 10 tickets and include some munchies being served. If interested in reserving a table contact Rick Hutchins: hutchr@nbnet.nb.ca.

Remember that this is a volunteer based organization, the bands volunteer their time and all funds raised go toward music-related community projects. Tickets are on sale at Tony’s Music Box, Harvest Central and at the Delta Fredericton, and are $18 in advance and $20 at the door.

Here is Mad Mary belted it out at a previous River Jam – just one of the 21 great local bands performing this Friday night!
