Weʼve raised £1,436 to Celebrate the first 35 years of Jumpin' Hot Club by supporting the next 35 Years!
- North East
- Funded on Friday, 27th March 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Edit: the below still all stands! We are going to be 35 and that is something to celebrate. However in these times of COVID-19, people self isolating and BJ telling everyone not to go to gigs, we are unfortunately having to cancel and postpone gigs up until the end of April. Our main priority is to keep our artists and audiences safe. But now more than ever we need your support! Please, if you love JHC and Live Music please think about donating a small amount!
Please stay safe and thank you all.
The Jumpin’ Hot Club is going to be 35 years old this year….ain’t that quite amazing!?
And as part of our 35th anniversary year we are launching a funding and sponsorship package. We have been promoting live music in the North East every year since 1985, without any core funding!
Whether its Country, Blues, Rock n' Roll, Songsters, Reggae/ Ska, Soul - in fact any kind of Roots music - we have brought this to a stage somewhere near you.
Here’s a short bit of history ...In 1985 two young men were disillusioned with the music that they were able to hear in their hometown, Newcastle. Sick of hitch hiking to London, Manchester and one-time Wakefield (!) they decided to take matters into their own hands. The Jumpin’ Hot Club was born in the basement of the Bridge Hotel in the city … & named after a roots music fanzine Graham had on the go at the time.
Now, nearly 35 YEARS ON and those two men are older & only slightly wiser, and have brought some unique & truly amazing talent to the North East for their & your own aural pleasure. The longest running music promoters in the North East, they have branched out into mentoring and consultation as well as music promotion, but they still remain true to their roots of bringing great music to the people of our region.
WE NEED YOU!
The live music industry wouldn’t work without you, the gig goer who supports us & the local community. You keep a grassroots company and a live music scene alive!
As part of our 35th year we would like to present our archive; we would like to mount some of the wonderful photos we have and put them up in a curated space, and we would like to edit some of the video footage and share it on social media…and possibly do a little screening somewhere & have a full exhibition.
We would also like to have a Birthday Party in December 2020 to mark the actual moment the club was born!
We are currently programming our anniversary year, and were also focusing around women and artists of colour. Equality and fairness is very important to us, as ever, and we want to make that clear through our programme during 2020 and of course, it will go beyond that too.
£5000 – Your company name on our website and on all published material both on social media and via physical distribution (flyers and posters) throughout the 35th anniversary year, running from April 2020 – March 2021.
