40 Hour Jammin’

25 & 26 September 2021

@ the Kendall Permaculture Farm

Violinist virtuoso Shenzo Gregorio and PermEco Inc. are organising the next 40 hour Jammin to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease on the 25th & 26th of September 2021 (Covid permitting). The event will run from 6am Saturday morning until 10pm Sunday evening at the Kendall Permaculture Farm in Kin Kin (Noosa Hinterland).

This is a fundraising event for MND & ME and all monies raised will go towards research into Motor Neurone Disease and aid for current sufferers.

The 40 hour Jammin is organised over 2 stages. We are aiming for around 2 hours of programmed music (bands and existing ensembles) followed by 2 hours of musicians jamming time with the musicians who performed and other musicians who would like to contribute. There could be some themed blocks (eg Gypsy Jazz, classical etc), but it will be fairly open. Click here to look at last year's the program.

Please check out the 40 Hour Jammin Facebook page for some amazing footage of the event!
