BANDS THAT JAM FOR AFRICA is a benefit concert showcasing the musicians of tomorrow and saving the lives of children in Africa today. More than half of the world is living on less than $2 per day. This is unacceptable. A child in Africa dies every 8 seconds. Families are losing their loved ones because they are not capable of providing for their family. However, we have the power to make a difference. JAM is feeding and educating 430,000 children in Africa every day. If this 430,000 can be replicated, by the year 2012, that would be one million lives saved.Through music and Bands that JAM for Africa teenagers can have a voice in the movement for Africa. ABANDON KANSAS: Abandon Kansas is a four piece pop/rock outfit from the midwest. With 300+ tour dates under their belts and a brand new full length record to share with the world.This band is known for putting on a relentlessly energetic show and has been winning over crowds in 35 states for the last year and a half. They have shared the stage with great bands like The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, As Cities Burn, Sleeping At Last, The Classic Crime, A Change of Pace, and tons more.Abandon Kansas is five guys with a heart for music and a passion for people. Their mission is to offer this music scene some genuine songs that cut to the core of who we are. Instead of break downs, its a dance party, and everyone is invited. WEAVER AT THE LOOM: In a musical community that often thrives upon conformity, Minneapolis-natives Weaver at the Loom are making progressive strides away from constrictive genres and templates. While maintaining a coinciding attitude of respect for the classics, they have attempted to reshape what is already timeless. Local favorites and Crofoot/Eagle Theater all-stars, SATURDAY NIGHT SHAKEDOWN and STORMS IN MAY bring their charm, energy, and pop enthusiasm to the cause.
