BomberJam 2015

Every year for the past three years I along with my family and my neighbors put on a big Musicians’ BBQ and fundraiser to benefit the National Brain Tumor Society and the Philadelphia Race For Hope. To date we’ve raised over $10,000 and have had a great time in the process.

Last year’s even was attended by over 400 musicians from South Jersey and Philadelphia for a day of jamming and camaraderie, but my backyard was slammed and the parking situation was dire.  This year we’ve decided to go a little bigger and hold the event at an outdoor venue called Indian Acres.   We expect at least as many people as last year and could easily have 500 people in attendance.

We feature many great local bands as part of the event and this year is no exception.  The band lineup for this year is:

Jersey Peaches
Greenwood Blues Band
Quixote Project
Reggie Wu & Mark Evans
Black Cherry
Fuzzy Paradise
Deck Band
Pool of Thorns
23 North
Whiskey Grin
We’re also going to have acoustic acts that play two songs in between the bands on a second stage, appearing so far this year are:
Taylor Lanahan
Jakki Roberts
Native Riff

Nick Greely
Jack Callahan
