Charity Blues Jam - Fri Nov 28 - A Dough Re Mi

The Lowcountry Blues Club is proud to host its 2nd annual charity blues jam at A Dough Re Mi in Mt. Pleasant, SC, on Friday, November 28th.

It's the day after Thanksgiving, and we're already sick of Turkey and shopping. And a few of us are probably sick of family as well.

So what's a blues lover to do... well we call our friends, meet up at A Dough Re Mi, have some killer pizza, and we throw a jam! Not just any jam, but the mother of all jams!! And everyone is invited!!!

Last years day after Thanksgiving jam was epic. In fact, it was so epic, we ran out of time! Those darn pesky 2AM closing laws got the best of us. So this year, we're starting an hour earlier at around 8PM, but feel free to come by at time during the evening.

And just like last year, we have a cover charge. You need to bring 2 cans of canned food. That's it. Just two cans. And if you forget, run next door to the Piggly Wiggly and pick up a couple of cans.

All the food collected will be given the East Cooper Meals On Wheels program. The folks at Meals On Wheels do good things, and we're here to help those folks continue to do good things. We collected lots of cans last year, and this year we're looking to collect more.

So other than bringing 2 cans of food, what do you need to do? You need to bring your love of pizza, your love of the blues, and if you're a musician, bring your instrument.

Because we love blues music, and we love to play the blues with everyone that we can. So make certain to bring your instruments, and get signed up on the musician jam list near the stage.

And if you don't play, please come anyway. The food goes to a good cause, you'll help support a local business, and the jam is going to be great.

In addition to the charity nature of the jam this year, we're also celebrating our recent acceptance in the Blues Foundation as an official blues society of the Charleston, SC, area. So we're asking all our friends and club members to swing by and celebrate with us. Some of the best musicians in the region are some of our members, and we'd love to have our entire family there to celebrate.

If you have any questions, please feel to email us at

If you don't know where to find A Dough Re Mi, they are located at:

A Dough Re Mi
1220 Ben Sawyer Blvd, Suite H
Mount Pleasant, SC 29464

And everyone, have a happy and safe Thanksgiving, and swing by the charity jam on Friday night to enjoy the evening with good friends and great music.

The jam starts at 8PM, but come early and socialize.
