About this event

We must Bragg On. Bragg Jam will present for summer 2021, Bragg On, a free community concert on Coleman Hill. While Bragg On will be smaller in scale than our traditional concert crawl, we believe providing a place for the community to gather and enjoy live music is the best way to safely fulfill our mission of creating, curating, supporting, and promoting live music experiences. Come join us on Coleman Hill as we Bragg On!

Organizer Bragg Jam, Inc.

Organizer of Bragg On

During the summer of 1999, Macon singer/songwriter Brax Bragg was on the brink of something big. He had just recorded a CD with his new band, the Buckleys, and they were scheduled to set out on a national tour. Before hitting the highway with his band, Brax took his baby brother Tate, an accomplished classical guitarist, on a cross-country road trip. While traveling through Texas on July 3, the brothers’ lives were tragically cut short by a car accident.

Back in Macon, friends were reeling at the news of the brothers’ tragic deaths. Russell Walker, a friend of the family and fellow musician, organized an impromptu jam session of local musicians to celebrate and honor the Bragg brothers’ talented lives. The healing power of music began to perpetuate, and a year later, the jam session resumed. “Bragg Jam” had officially been born. What began as an untimely tragedy, has evolved into a way to give back to the community.

21 years later, and countless hours of time put in by an all-volunteer board, Bragg Jam has culminated into Macon’s biggest weekend of music with a two-day, multi-venue concert crawl on the last weekend of July. What started out as a handful of bands at a couple stages, has grown to 50+ bands at 10+ stages all around the heart of downtown Macon. Money raised from Bragg Jam is donated to the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, Amerson River Park, as well as other local causes in memory of the brothers.

Today, Bragg Jam has grown to envelop the Second Sunday Concert Series, Arts & Kids Fest, and the legendary Concert Crawl.
