Richmond Beach Neighborhood Association

Friday night, February 26, from 6 to 9 pm is the third annual YOUTH JAM sponsored by the Richmond Beach Community Association. The event, which is a musical performance competition for prize money, will be judged by music professionals from the regional scene.

The event takes place in the basement of the Richmond Beach Congregational Church located at 1512 NW 195th and is open to the public with a $2.50 admission.

Crowd appreciation can have an impact on the judging, so family, friends, and fans of each of the participants should show up and cheer their favorites.

Youth Jam will showcase a diverse group of acts this year, displaying some of the outstanding musical youth talent our community is known for. At press time, the acts included a solo singer/songwriter, blues rock duo, dance troupe, and pop rock ensemble to entertain the live audience and vie for a bit of local success and stardom.

The judges will include KPLU DJ and trumpetor/flugelhornist Jason Parker, drummer Jeremy Jones, and bassist Jerry Fleet, who among them possess decades of professional experience in the music industry.

Pizza and beverages will be available for purchase.
 A fund drive for the Shoreline Substance Abuse Program for youth, a department of the Center for Human Services, will be held at the Youth Jam.
