People sometimes ask us: The Great Southern Jam Night…. what should we expect?
The musicians who’ll participate on December 1st have met each other on the road or backstage during concerts and festivals. That’s where they chat, have fun, drink a beer and often say “we should do something together”. This is precisely what’s going to happen during The Great Southern Jam Night!! With changing line-ups, they will play well-known classic (hard) rock songs without any rehearsals. As Kiss sings: “I want to rock and roll all night and party every day”, no doubts it will be a party on December 1st!
