The 15th Annual River Jam Fredericton is set to take over the Delta Hotel on Friday, July 3rd !
The music starts at 4:30 pm on the Dip Pool Patio at the Delta Fredericton and wraps up with an all-out jam session at DJ Purdy’s!
River Jam is considered a favourite music event for both patrons and performers alike. It is an opportunity for the music community to mingle under one roof and is held close to many hearts. It is made so sweet by all the volunteers who contribute their time and talents with much joy and enthusiasm.
The organizers have programmed 21 bands over 4 stages, each with a different vibe, providing something for everyone’s musical taste. They’ve got your easy listening, ‘soaking up the sun’ on the patio rocking blues, an intimate club setting and a dance party. And they’ll top off the night with a rockin’ jam session hosted by Paul Campbell in DJ Purdy’s.
These talented local musicians, donating their time to this worthy cause, will fill the hotel with the blues, funk, country, jazz, rhythm & blues and much more. All proceeds from the event are donated to local music programs and community projects.
River Jam is also host to the presentation of the Diane London Award, which is presented each year to a female musician or artist, or works in the arts field who has contributed to the community.
