Last Year's Christmas Music Concert Toy Drive Was Great. Here's a visual walk down memory lane highlighting some of the performers.
But as good as it was Christmas Jubilee Jam 2014 promises to be even better with some of Gainesville's finest musicians, singers and dancers coming together and sharing the same stage for a One Night Only performance...singing and performing to some of your favorite Christmas songs.
Imagine visualize constant motion, an ebb and flow of entertainers entering and exiting the stage with hardly seconds going by as they transition from one scene to another.
Finally, imagine performers filling the aisles, singing, praising and rejoicing - just an arms length away from the audience, so close that you'll be able to reach out and touch them. It's not Cirque Du Soleil but it could be...kinda, sort of, oh how I wish it was so!
Christmas Jubilee Jam is all of this...and more, featuring Christmas Music...from tunes you hear on the radio to songs sung by your favorite church choirs and favorite artists; songs like The Christmas Song and Mary Did You Know and my favorite of all - Emmanuel

Christmas Jubilee is a Toy Drive For Kids
Gifts - gifts and donations will go to school age homeless kids Alachua County. Our focus is on High School aged kids, but we will accept gifts for all ages.
Want to be a partner/sponsor? Financial contributions to pay costs associated with producing the program are appreciated. Plus, a small donation will get you RSVP Seating (there's only 100 RSVP Seats available for the show for the concert, so you might want to act fast when they become available November 1).
The Story Behind The Event
During a hot, sweltering day in June I was thinking about cooler weather...and naturally thought about one of my favorite holidays, Christmas. it ocurred to me that despite my love of Christmas Music and all that goes with it I've never played and/or performed as much of it as I'd like.
So, I thought why not do something about it. Thus was born the idea of Christmas Jubilee Jam. Basically, it's a Christmas Concert featuring Christmas Music Only and I'd like to extend a personal invitation to you to join in and make it an event that all of Gainesville will enjoy. So, please help me spread the word!
It'll be a good time, with musicians jamming, choirs singing, dancers getting their spiritual groove on and deaf interpreters signing to songs. I heard that Santa Claus may even be there.
