Jibberjazz: Some Kind of Fundraiser

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of Some Kind of Jam 15. Due to restrictions on gathering size put in place by the federal government with our current health crisis, it would be legally impossible to move forward at this point. With the cancellation of SKOJ15, Jibberjazz needs your support now, more than ever.

Throughout 15 years, Jibberjazz has NEVER cancelled a planned festival. We have endured floods, tornadoes, snow blizzards and even pushed forward during statewide states of emergency. However, this situation is different and the future is uncertain for many. The future of Jibberjazz is itself in question at the moment as canceling a festival presents a huge financial defeat. We are launching a GO FUND ME to ease the burden and help ensure our financial survival, so that we can continue to bring you music for the foreseeable future. Please check it out, donate if you can and share with friends aligned to our cause. We will have rewards in place for those that meet certain requirements.

All Jibberjazz events are 100% self-produced, with no corporate ties or sponsorships, as we remain a fiercely independent grassroots organization.

For the past 15 years, Jibberjazz has produced over 50 music & camping festivals and events, including the annual Some Kind of Jam and Meeting of the Minds - as well as Madsummer Meltdown, Boogie In The Bungalow and many other music-related happenings. These gatherings have featured national and regional and international, original acts ranging in funk, jam, bluegrass, psychedelic, jazz, blues, folk, reggae, rock & roll, singer-songwriter, and many more musical styles too numerous to list.

All donations will be used to cover lost and future production costs, so we can continue to bring you music & camping extravaganzas.

The Jibberjazz focus is finding national and regional bands on the rise and unleashing them on unsuspecting audiences. We are a bridge between vast musical pockets scattered across the country and our main purpose is to find and develop these bands. We take great pride in the quality and diversity of our lineups, and we are always on the lookout for the next great sound to emerge from the abyss. Tomorrow's Headliners Today: The mantra Jibberjazz has embraced throughout the last decade.

Some of the hundreds of musical acts Jibberjazz has showcased over the years include: Antibalas, Ozric Tentacles, Man Man, Budos Band, Anders Osborne, Rubblebucket, The New Mastersounds, Twiddle, Dopapod, Tauk, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Spafford, Moon Hooch, Marco Benevento, Mike Dillon, Skerik, Toubab Krewe, Ryan Montbleau, Monophonics, Project/Object, Cabinet, John Kadlecik, Max Creek, Everyone Orchestra, Papa Mali, Orgone, Eric Krasno, ALO, The Motet, RAQ, Particle, Robert Walter's 20th Congress, Tea Leaf Green, Felice Brothers, New Orleans Suspects, Deep Banana Blackout, Jim Weider, Assembly of Dust, Scott Pemberton, Consider The Source ... and so many more to come!

​ Since 2005, Jibberjazz festivals have drummed up a buzz in the underground by showcasing a truly diverse musical lineup that blends heavy hitting out-of-market bands, national acts, and up-and-coming regional talent. These festivals have developed a dedicated fan base in the region and continue to grow in intensity and attendance, season after season. That trend continues through 2020 and beyond, as we continue to produce multiple music & camping festivals per season. Creative line-ups, killer music, and good people are what Jibberjazz is all about...

Stay Safe. Isolate. Make Music. See you in October.
