We have said it on many occasions in the past here at Rapid Growth, but with each passing year, Grand Rapids’ music scene continues to evolve into some new kind of wonderful.
Not only is our region becoming a draw for musicians, but also an attractant for folks who enjoy not just access to live music but such incredibly diverse musical styles available almost nightly on our scene.
And this year is another milestone for local musicians as it is the 20th Annual WYCE Jammie Awards
celebration at The Intersection.
This night is a chance for fans of our community-sponsored and volunteer-DJ radio station 88.5 FM to honor the hard work of our music community with a program jam-packed with an impressive roster of artists.
And with the recent expansions at The ‘Section, the 20th Jammies grows to become a four-stages experience for the first time in its history!
This means that you will have some choices to make from this impressive list of acts performing at the event. The 2019 line up includes:
The War and Treaty*
The Bootstrap Boys
Carrie McFerrin Music*
Cønrad Shøck + the Nøise *
KJ & The Good Time Family Band *
Lady Ace Boogie
Last Gasp Collective*
North Country Rounders*
Peace to Mateo*
The Skinny Limbs*
(Those acts above marked with an “*” are performing at the Jammies for the very first time!)
Stick around after the show for a special performance from The Hacky Turtles!
The Jammies is an all-ages concert experience. Admission is just $5. (This is a suggested donation event, but do give more if you are able since the funds support an amazing service in our community.)
