July Jamm ready to
rock downtown again
By Patrick Kelly
The downtown Lincoln area will
be jammin’ as Nebraska’s largest
blues, fine arts and food festival
returns to Lincoln. The eighth annual
July Jamm will kick off on Friday, July
23 and last until Sunday, July 25th.
Ground Zero, The
Updowntowners along with numerous
other groups have come together to
sponsor this year’s festival.
This year’s event will feature more
than twenty five acts ranging from
jazz, blues reggae, contemporary folk,
swing and rock ‘n’ roll. The event
kicks off Friday with a performance by
the Fab-tones at 11:30 on Friday. Each
day the {festival begins at 11:30 and
admission is free until 6:00 on Friday
and Saturday. After that time on those
two days admission will be $5. The
festival will span from 11th to 13th
streets on “N” and “O”. The concerts
will be held at two separate locations.
The main stage will be positioned at
12th and N while the E2-Energy
Square Stage will be located inside the
Energy Square Building.
The festival is
strongly rooted in
the tradition of
supporting local
acts. Jane Byram,
chair for the
event is excited
with the prospect
of showcasing
acts that other
wise would not
receive the atten
“We can give
local artists the
exposure and
take local music
to a new level,”
Byram said.
The July
Jamm also serves
as a showcase for
many national
acts as well. One
of the performers
who will cap off
the festival is
blues musician
Big Bill
whose father is
better known as
Muddy Waters.
While the
July Jamm is not
limited to blues
music, it does
become apparent
that that particu
lar genre of
music is integral
to the event.
Many of these
blues acts have
already become

The main stage is located at 12th and N Streets, with the
festival stretching from 11th to 13th Streets on N Street and O
to N Street on 12th Street. The E2 stage, inside the Energy
Square Building, is located at 12th and O Streets.

downtown area
because of their
performances at the Zoo Bar. The
Zoo’s owner Larry Boehmer is famil
iar with many of the acts performing at
this year’s Jam.
“It’r good publicity for Lincoln. It
provides bands with more exposure
and it brings people and money to the
downtown area,” said Boehmer.
Diversity seems to be a key ele
ment to the July Jam. Apart from the
Matt Haney/DN
broad range of music, the audiences
can dine on an eclectic mix of foods.
Fifteen local restaurants will be on
hand to broaden the pallet.
Between shows audiences can
visit the displays of local artists. The
art ranges from painting to sculptures
to fine crafts.
With numerous artists and spon
sors the July Jamm looks like a tradi
tion in the making.
