Not only will we be celebrating the life of the Legend himself, we're also building towards a tremendous cause. All Proceeds from the "Blowin Down The House Benefit Concert" will go towards the funding of the 2020 Big Jay McNeely Rhythm & Blues Festival!!
"We wanted to create something that would allow his impact on Rhythm & Blues and the Jazz genre to forever be recognized. He has truly paved a way for today's musicians and helped create what we know and love today as Rock & Roll."
The Festival is expected to take place the Spring of 2020 in Los Angeles, Ca with over 75 live acts (musical & non-musical), vendors, food trucks, informal and hands on art work shops, as well as Art Installations! More information to come soon!
Get ready children, because we're going to blow our brains out!
