The blues concert and jam is presentation of Jammingout.Net and is a food drive to benefit the San Diego Rescue Mission. The event is FREE, however they are asking for a non-perishable food donation. In addition to a jam with popular blues musicians from the region, the event also includes a concert performances by Chet Cannon & The Committee an award winning band that has been playing blues in San Diego since 2001, and the leader of the group Chet Cannon is known to be a “terminal blues fan”. Also performing is Wild Pack, a hard-hitting blues trio from Mexico that combines old school blues with a heavy blues
sound of 1970’s.
“This is a great time for this event because the community is in need,” said John Pack, Director, Blues Against Hunger. "Statistically, donations are much lower over the summer months forcing many families and elderly to turn to food banks and donations for help. This event is a great way to help provide much needed food while giving the locals a fun and inexpensive way to be exposed to blues music and help their community.”
