Fam Jam is coming to Summer Jo's
Rogue Fam Jammer's after performing at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Green Show.
This Sunday is Fam Jam!

Get ready to get down and give big because the Rogue Fam Jam is coming to town, and we couldn't be happier to host them right here on the lawn at Summer Jo's.
The musical benefit was born from a birthday jam for Grants Pass local and fifth-generation Oregonian Michelle Bellamy, a rising star on the local folk music scene. The first jam was such an epic event that it immediately became a monthly dancing-room-only jam session featuring the best of the best of the Rogue's many music makers and benefiting a different local non-profit each month.
Thanks to musicians donating their time and talent and local businesses ponying up raffle prizes, Fam Jam has raised a lot of money for local charities in the year or so since it started. Best of all, 100% of all the donations go directly to the charity of the month. A representative of the organization is always on hand to answer questions and brought on stage to share a bit about their good work in the world, and exactly what the donations that night are going for, from furnishing a homeless shelter to funding the food bank.
This is the second time for Fam Jam at Summer Jo's. Last year's event was a great success, and we have an impressive lineup of musicians this year, including Jenny Skudstad, Ambur Rose, Gene Burnette, Michelle Bellamy, Antonio Melendez, The Illies, and Frankie Hernandez.
Fam Jam is the most fun you'll ever have giving to a good cause. This second Fam Jam at Summer Jo's is Raptor Creek Farms, which supplies the Josephine County Food Bank!
