Event description

Description

Join Steve Vai and Friends on Septmber 28th at noon through September 30th at 4pm for "The Big Mama Jama Jam-a-thon" -an open improvisational music/art event where the music doesn’t stop for 52 hours. Various professional and novice musicians, speakers, painters, celebrities, visual artists, poets, etc. from various genres are invited to support each other in an “in-the-moment” impromptu jam. The event will be streamed live worldwide through various cable TV stations, websites, and radio outlets.

100% of the profits will go towards raising funds and awareness for Extraordinary Families, a leading non-profit foster family adoption agency in the Los Angeles area, dedicated to improving the daily lives of children and youths in foster care. Steve currently serves on the board of E.F. These folks are extraordinary, and do vital work for families and children in L.A.

The event will be held at Musicians Institute’s brand-new auditorium, "The Live House" in the heart of Hollywood, California. The stage will be festooned with all sorts of musical gear and creative “toys” and visited on-and-off by all sorts of artists (including perhaps your good self).


*If you choose to purchase an opportunity to take to the stage, you will be given access to a schedule page where you can choose a time slot between midnight and 7pm on any of the days. Participants do not need to exclusively be musicians. Anykind of interesting artistic, eclectic, or abstract thing that you can do that you think others would get a kick out of will work. The band will improvise music in back of you. If you are a musician and choose to join the stage, there is a list of songs on the schedule page that you can request from, or you can request a song for the band to learn, (If it's simple enough). You can also be a solo performer and entertain the audience by yourself in your time slot. We can offer up to 10 minutes of stage time. Could be more, but if it's less that's up to you. Enjoy!
