B&J_EddiePoster_PRODCheck out this event, organized by Jessica Tomasin of Asheville. She’s known for her work with Echo Mountain Recording Studios, but she’s branching out with her a new event production and business development company called Jet Up. Here’s the info. Sounds like a killer event:

Asheville’s Bread and Jam

APRIL 18th
39 S Market Street, Asheville, North Carolina 28801
7:30 p.m.

It’s a tribute to Motown Legend Eddie Holland and features some of Asheville’s finest, such as River Guerguerian, Jim Arrendell, Debrissa McKinney, Chuck Beattie, Josh Blake, Ryan Burns, Casey Cramer, Steve Cohen,Michael Selverne, Mike Rhodes and more. There’s a girl who just moved to town from Chicago named Jeanine Smith who will be performing and also this killer young girl we’ve been working with over here at the studio named Indigo De Souza. We’ll be raffling off some pretty cool prizes as well. The ticket is $20 and includes two drinks which are being provided by Asheville Brewing Company and Joni Artisanal Wine and Beer and food is being provided by Taste & See. We’ll have an area set up as with some photos from the Motown Records days. The main technician from Motown Records lives here in Asheville and he’s provided us with some photos to display.

We’re hoping to raise $10,000 with this single event which would provide 30,000 meals in WNC. I’m sure you already know this, but hunger is a major issue here in WNC, with 1 in 6 families not having enough food to eat. I know it’s a lofty goal, but this is something that all of us involved feel very strongly about and we’re working diligently to achieve this goal.

We have a list of amazing sponsors too. Daytrotter music blog is sponsoring, (as well as coming down for the event), Over Easy, Echo Mountain Recording, Roots Hummus, IAMAVL, Rock-a-prints, and Sweetwater (the gear company, not brewery.)
