Jammin for Genes

From the Jammin website, ...
Jamm for Genes is a live music event that takes place on the weekend of Jeans for Genes Day (the first weekend in August). In 2004 Jamm for Genes launched a very successful maiden voyage that saw bands Thirsty Merc, Machine Gun Fellatio, Taxiride, Gus & Frank and Dave McCormack donating their time and skills to perform at two separate locations. It was fun, it was loud and it was raising funds for the Jeans for Genes campaign. Cut to 2006 it was no wonder that over 70 live music venues and 160 bands put their hands up to get involved when the event was run for the second time nationwide. 2007 saw beyond the support of the previous years with ambassadors Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Jade McCrae, Jon Stevens, The McClymonts, Glenn Shorrock and Courtney Act all jumping on board and doing there best to help out.
