“JIMMY JAM” CONCERT FEATURING DAILEY & VINCENT, DEL MCCOURY BAND, SAM BUSH, THE GRASCALS & MANY MORE STARS TO BE HELD ON AUGUST 6, 2013 AT NASHVILLE’S 3RD & LINDSLEY
Proceeds to benefit award-winning producer/musician and co-founding
Mountain Heart member Jim VanCleve and his family
Jim VanCleve, award-winning founding member of the contemporary Americana/Roots group MOUNTAIN HEART has recovered from his near fatal bout of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever, contracted from mosquito bites he received while performing in St. Croix in late March. Jim, a noted musician and in-demand session player and record producer, was hospitalized, bedridden and out of work for over six weeks.
To help offset the extraordinary medical expenses amassed during his hospitalization and subsequent home care, his many music industry friends are hosting the “Jimmy Jam” benefit to help the VanCleve family in their time of need. Jim has given of his time and talents so many times over the years for similar causes. Now he finds himself faced with his family’s own need.
As the married father of three young children (and at the time the sole breadwinner with no health insurance), this event has caused a tremendous financial strain on his family, forced him back to work earlier than doctors wanted and impacted his family in numerous ways.
We invite you and your friends to join Jim and a host of musical stars including Grammy nominated, three-time IBMA Entertainer of the Year winners Dailey & Vincent, the multi-year IBMA Entertainer of the Year/Grammy winning Del McCoury Band (featuring Bluegrass Music Hall of Famer Del McCoury), Newgrass legend Sam Bush, two-time IBMA Entertainer of the Year winners The Grascals, multi-Grammy nominated group The SteelDrivers and a host of other luminaries who all happen to be good friends and admirers, in what will be a memorable night of music and fellowship to assist this wonderful family.
There will also be a Silent Auction that night with items donated by many famous artists, like Rock legend John Oates. 100% of the net proceeds will go directly towards reducing the family’s medical bills.
Here is the list of artist commitments as of this writing. More expected.
