Friday, 7th August heralds the start of JAMSTAND 2009, which promises to be a fantastic, two day extravaganza of live music and family fun at the Caroline Symonds Gardens. After two successful one day concerts, organizer Jack Baldus and his team decided it was time for this great event to expand and have arranged yet another free musical feast for the people of Ross and its visitors to enjoy.

JAMSTAND 2009 will begin with a great mix of acoustic folk and blues, featuring the likes of the beautiful voice of Louise Richardson and the talented duo, Mike Marky and Nick Jones. Throughout the day, the music will gradually build up to give you Latin funk, Hip hop, Rock and R & B and visitors will be able to enjoy the fabulous Broome Cupboard Blues band and local favourites, The Dandelion Killers, who are headlining on the first night.

On Saturday, 'Demon of the Decks,' DJ Yoda will take the main stage for a while, warming everybody up for the bands which include Jive Stick, the Zebedy Rays and Jack's own band, Zang Tang. While all this fantastic live entertainment is happening on the main stage, the DJ Tent will be jumping to sounds provided by Robinson's Jam, DJ Odi and Fatman & Tropical, amongst others.

Children have not been forgotten at JAMSTAND and there will be plenty to keep them occupied by way of face painting, bouncy castles and other activities and, should they happen to get lost, a welfare tent will be manned to keep them safe until reunited with their parents. There will be a variety of stalls for people to browse and food stalls, the Broome Farm Cider tent and a bar will also be available.

The fun is set to begin at 12 Noon on Friday, 7th August. We hope to see you there.
