“They’re all incredible musicians and people, one and all.” said Sweet Rachel Pack, bass player and founder of Blues Against Hunger Society, “Their music will give us an opportunity tell our story, help fight hunger, and share the blues.”
The Brewers & Blues Against Hunger events are always FREE to the public and all are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items to support the work of North County Food Bank. "We learned how music and meals can heal." said Sweet Rachel, "Now it seems it’s all we want to do; we love the blues, and the reward of doing what you love while help others is overwhelming." All donation will be accepted at the door in provided food bank containers. The goal is fill the community food bank and fight hunger while sharing the passion of blues and artisan of fine craft beers.
The Blues Against Hunger Society have been producing blues jam food drives since 2014. Their mission is to produce, help produce, and promote blues music food drive events. The Blues Against Hunger Society has helped provide over 10,630 meals in 3 years. “We’re growing each year, however each year it seems there is an even greater need” said Sweet Rachel, “we want to get everyone involved - the more musicians and fans we can get involved the greater the food collected.”
In addition to food drives, and a celebration of blues, the jams are also a celebration of craft beer. Aztec Brewing Company is the host of the Vista California jam. The brewery is little bit of nostalgia and a little bit of new life. Although they’re working to revive an old-style brand, they are also working hard to be conscious of the importance of being green and natural. “Savor the flavor before you taste it”, as they say. From a good kick back beer, to a beer that will kick back.
Craft brewers and blues musicians are both artisans, unique, and special unto themselves, and when paired together great things can happen. Please help fight hunger and preserve blues music. Music and meals can heal, and you can be part of it too!"
