The event, happening Feb. 19 at The Intersection, features a whirlwind of live performances, 24 in all. With that, 20 awards are given to the best local music released in the past year. Jammies, which span an array of genres, are selected by WYCE Programmers, critics and by community vote.

“Jammies XVII is about celebrating the talent that we have here and providing a fun and supportive environment to nurture the music scene,” said WYCE Station Manager AJ Paschka.
“Local Music is often the driving force of audience engagement programming for businesses, non-profits, and community organizations,” Paschka added. “It is critical to support and nurture the talent that exists in our community because this type of expression is inclusive and helps bridge the differences between our shared experiences as people.”
