Sand Jam Now A Realityby Michael Patrick Brewer on Feb. 15, 2010, under Veteran Pals, Veterans Benefits, Veterans Events, Veterans' Spouses, Partners & Families
This past Friday, the owners of Hotel Congress met with a collection of veterans to launch Tucson’s first, “Sand Jam” concert in recognition and support of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of War.
The Concert will be held at Club Congress on Sunday, May 30th, 2010 the day prior to Memorial Day. David Slutes of Hotel Congress is the lead promoter of the event and will be selecting a variety of bands to perform that day. All parties involved are open to suggestions for performing acts. The event is scheduled from noon to 8pm.
The newly remodeled patio of the Hotel can accommodate approximately 1500 attendees with room for outdoor performance stages. Maynards and the Cup Cafe will be serving food.
Suppliers and vendors are welcome for this inaugural event.
Tucson has a tremendous history of support for our veterans. I am certain this will be a smash hit and a catalyst for a gathering place for vets to share stories and find community support.
