40 Hour Jammin’

14 & 15 November 2020

@ 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 14th and 15th of November 2020. The event will run from 6am Saturday morning until 10pm Sunday evening on the Kendall Permaculture Farm in Kin Kin (Noosa Hinterland) by not for profit organisation PermEco Inc.

The event will be ticketed with capped attendance due to Covid, 20% of takings go towards organising expenses of the event, 40% to the MND & ME foundation to support people with Motor Neurone Disease, and 40% will be divided up between all participating musicians, in order to support them during these difficult times. If musicians waive their fee it will automatically go to the MND & ME foundation.
This year we will possibly buy equipment like ventilators and iPads (for communication) to donate to the MND & ME foundation, so they can distribute those items to existing MND sufferers. We will keep you informed!

The 40 hour Jammin will be organised in 4 hour blocks over 2 stages on the one property. We are aiming for around 2 hours of programmed music (bands and existing ensembles) and the remaining 2 hours will be jamming time consisting of 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. Tickets will need to be pre-purchased, there will be no ticket sales at the gate. There are a limited amount of VIP all access tickets available (entire weekend access) for silent auction. You can find the form below to place your bid.

Due to Covid there will be capped attendance and limited amounts of people who can be in any one area at a time. This will be strictly monitored, so we can adhere to all the Covid Safe practices. This will be a Covid Safe event, adhering to the Covid Safe Event Checklist.

Please stay at home if unwell or have a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath. If you become unwell during the event, please seek assistance by notifying the event organisers. Maintaining physical distancing requirements is the individual's responsibility.

This is an alcohol, smoke and drug free event. Food is available for purchase onsite from Bearded Brothers Eats and coffee/tea is available for purchase from 5th Element Coffee. There will be a fundraising cake stall onsite and a massage stall which will offer chair massages for $1 per minute.

We are really looking forward to this event, and we are immensely grateful for your support!
