You saved the Southland Jamboree!!
Good and faithful Southland Jamboree fans, I am excited to announce that, with YOUR help, a partial 2018 season of the Southland Jamboree will open on Monday nights beginning July 2.
FUNDS STILL NEEDED: As of 5/25, we are over $6000 toward our goal of $8000 to fund the 10 Monday nights between July 2 and September 3 Labor Day, so we are going on faith here that our fans will continue to donate to get us to that goal. And past it if possible which would mean more security for planning next year’s full season.

We hope to publish the schedule for this abbreviated season soon.
ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING: We need your help! Not just financial help, but we would like to expand the troupe of volunteers to more than just a small handful. We need help with PR, sponsorship recruitment and scheduling, food truck scheduling, trash can pickups after the concerts, putting up and taking down signs, jam leaders and starters, etc. If you can help us, please join us Tuesday June 5 – contact me (message Southland Jamboree on Facebook or email Beth R. Tibbitts) and we’ll arrange a location, probably in the Southland Drive area. Some of you have already volunteered but more are welcome.
You saved the Music! Can’t wait until Monday July 2 at 7:00 pm.
Hopefully I can announce our opening band (and more of the schedule) “real soon now.”
