THE JAM JAR BRISTOL, JAM PACKED, COUSIN KULA & HUMANS FOR RIGHTS PRESENT:
The best refugee fundraising E.P launch dance mega party this side of the M32.
Due to unforeseen circumstances The Jam Jar has had to relocate and merge next weekend’s scheduled events. Thankfully, not too far away. The Kuumba Centre just off of Stoke's Croft have saved the day.
Boasting a rich cultural history, the Kuumba is a centre for African arts and community projects seldom used as a music venue. We’ll be filling it with our top quality sound set up, the finest lighting and decor. Oh and we’re the right side of winter to make proper use of their huge garden area. What a treat!
In collaboration with Alfresco Disco, Dub The Earth and now the extensive network of The Jam Jar Bristol this event aims to raise money and awareness for the charity Human for rights network. It’s excellent work includes the development of an app that will allow all volunteers, grass roots groups and refugees themselves to alert the charity of any violations of Human rights. They aim to use the evidence collected for legal challenges, advocacy and to overall protect those experiencing these violations and the ever growing threat to the Human rights system. Please help support their work.
Celebrating the launch of their fourth single 'WORKING FOR IT'.
Aside from NME Naming this band as one of the top acts in Bristol this year, we think they’re tip top. . Their unique psych pop sound features incredibly tight musicianship with jazzy brass, psychedelic organs, a funky rhythm section and soulful lead vocals.
Alfresco Disco has grown to become one of the most talked about groups in the UK in recent times. Gaining a reputation for capturing the imagination of those who attend with a winning combination of the best music, unexpected locations, a keen eye for detail, and the love of a good party.
With support from
Dub The Earth
These Bristol based Dub legends have been shaking stages since the 90’s. Fusing their heavyweight bassy sound with anecdotes of social justice campaigns ongoing and past there couldn’t be a more appropriate act for this event. Expect all the best bits of phat dub, reggae, ska, and punk. A live show not to be missed.
Time for T.
Their unique breed of sound travels through a rhythm of afrobeat, indie, folk and rock & roll to create waves that grow with torrential intensity. With a UK Spotify Viral Charts number 1 single and radioplay on BBC 1 and 6 under their belt, they release their debut album on the 15th of September - at this very show.
Progressive Psychedelic Trio, fresh out of Brighton. There’s an upbeat feeling with echoes of vintage Laurel Canyon harmony vocals and guitar jangles running through Jouis’ songs as befits a band named after jouissance, the ultimate pleasure principle.
