BENEFIT JAM FAQ

 

ARE KIDS ALLOWED?

This event is for ages 10 + up. Tickets available for kids ages 9 and under to enjoy music, art, pizza and a movie at Church Street School (74 Warren Street) 10:30am-4:00pm.

WHAT IF I DON’T PLAY GUITAR?

Don’t play? Two options: 1) take this opportunity to learn a few chords 2) come to hang, witness, and have a good time. You might even find yourself singing!

WILL I BE OKAY PLAYING WITH OTHER GUITARISTS WHO MIGHT BE BETTER THAN ME?

Guitarists, feel free to come with no practice at all, as the chords and lyrics will be projected on site. However, if you’d like to download the charts in advance, they will be available on our website a week before the event.

There is also a FREE workshop being offered at Church Street School for Music + Art (74 Warren Street) on Wednesday Nov. 12th from 6:00 – 8:00pm, for those who’d like a crash course in the music we’ll be doing at City Winery.

ANYTHING SPECIAL I SHOULD BRING?

Guitarists, please remember to bring an acoustic guitar and a strap, plus a soft case to avoid the pesky case-check line.

Please note that the value of the goods and services received per person at the Concert + Jam is $30. To determine the deductibility of the amounts contributed in excess of this, please consult with your tax advisor.

Unfortunately, Artist Co-Chair Chad Smith will be unable to attend the event this year as he will be busy working in L.A. He regrets if anyone is disappointed and is sorry to be missing this always special occasion.
