Wolfe Jam is back to Benefit the Joy of Music School

Knoxville musicians are primed to play Wolfe Jam, a tribute to Rick Wolfe and benefit for The Joy of Music School.  In the tradition of previous celebrations, this year’s Wolfe Jam will contribute half of the proceeds to a local musician in need.

Wolfe Jam 2013 will take place Saturday, April 13th at 7:00 at The Well, located at 4620 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN.  The Well is one of Knoxville’s top original music venues and is owned by Gina Truitt.  Truitt is the former proprietor of The Spot, one of Wolfe’s favorite places to play in Knoxville.

Wolfe Jam is a benefit for the Joy of Music School, created in honor of Rick Wolfe's Birthday.  Wolfe was a vital part of the Knoxville musical community for over 35 years as a musician, soundman, instrument repairman and mentor to many.

The Wolfe Jam costs just $7 to attend. Separate donations can be made on site and there will also be a silent auction.  Proceeds will be split equally between the Joy of Music School and an unnamed Knoxville musician in need.  People who cannot attend but would like to make a donation can do so at The Well prior to the event.

Wolfe Jam 2013 performers in order of appearance are Northshore, Jodie Manross & Leith Keilany, Jenna and her Cool Friends, The MACDADDIES and The Bearded.

The Joy of Music School was founded in 1998 in Knoxville, Tennessee upon the belief that all young people should have the opportunity to experience and create music regardless of income. The mission at Joy of Music School is to provide quality music education programs for financially disadvantaged youth. 

The 2013 Wolfe Jam is sponsored by WUTK The Rock, WDVX and BLANK Newspaper.
