the 40 hour Jammin!
14 & 15 November 2020
@ the Kendall Permaculture Farm
Kin Kin, Noosa Hinterland, Sunshine Coast
Violinist virtuoso Shenzo Gregorio and Not for Profit organisation PermEco Inc. are organising the next 40 hour Jammin’ to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease and participating performing artists on the 14th and 15th of November 2020. The event will run from 6am Saturday morning until 10pm Sunday evening on the Kendall Permaculture Farm in Kin Kin (Noosa Hinterland) by not for profit organisation PermEco Inc.
The event will be ticketed with capped attendance due to Covid, 20% of takings go towards organising expenses of the event, 40% to the MND & ME foundation to support people with Motor Neurone Disease, and 40% will be divided up between all participating musicians, in order to support them during these difficult times. If musicians waive their fee it will automatically go to the MND & ME foundation.
This year we will possibly buy equipment like ventilators and iPads (for communication) to donate to the MND & ME foundation, so they can distribute those items to existing MND sufferers. We will keep you informed!
The 40 hour Jammin will be organised in 4 hour blocks over 2 stages on one property. We are aiming for around 2 hours of programmed music (bands and existing ensembles) and the remaining 2 hours will be jamming time consisting of the musicians who performed and other musicians who would like to contribute. There could be some themed blocks (eg Gypsy Jazz, classical etc), but it will be fairly open. There are a limited amount of VIP all access tickets available (entire weekend access), and limited day tickets (Saturday or Sunday, 16 hours per day of non stop music, adult, child and family tickets!) are also available now.
