Jammin for Jon

Our beloved friend and bandmate, Jon Putnam, needs help.
He is battling pancreatic cancer, and is undergoing chemotherapy to get the tumor reduced, so it can be removed.

Chemotherapy has been incredibly tough, and Jon is unable to work. His pain levels are very high, and the additional side effects of this chemotherapy treatment are taking a toll on his health. If you know Jon, you know that he is such a very strong and optimistic person, who will find a way to smile and make the best of any situation. Regardless, there are good days and bad days. 
His medical bills are adding up, and we are unable to forecast how long this treatment process will take. We want to help our band brother and his amazing wife Shea with these necessary medical bills. This GoFundMe is one part of our plan. 
We have also scheduled a benefit concert for Jon on December 27th, at Montgomery Bell Academy. 

Here's an ever-growing list of bands/artists we have lined up so far!!
Journey to the Heart - A Tribute to Heart
Vinyl Radio
Mike Arnold & the Music City Rockers
Hill Jack, featuring Porter Howell of Little Texas
Michael Britt of Lonestar
Shea & Jon Putnam with Liz Lawrence 
Plus many other special guests!!
If you want to play or sing, please send a message to [email redacted] and we'll make it happen.

 Jon has been a solid player and member of many bands here in the Nashville area during his career, and his friends are coming out to share the stage with Jon, if he's feeling up to it.  It will be a rockin’ and great celebration!

The J4J (Jammin’ for Jon) Benefit Show will be $20 at the door. A donation to this site will include admission to the show. If you decide to donate anonymously, please send us a message so we get your name on the list.

100% of all proceeds from this page and from the J4J Benefit will go straight to Jon. Jon is very excited about the event and can't wait to see everyone!! So, in the spirit of hope and strength, please give whatever you can and please join us all at the J4J Benefit on December 27.
