Audition dates announced for the 2019 Suwannee River Jam!

We are excited to announce the audition schedule for the chance to play at the 2019 Suwannee River Jam at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground in Live Oak, FL.

Auditions will kick-off on January 11 at 7pm at the SOS Music Hall. This first round of auditions is looking for solo artists and duets who think they have what it takes to command the stage at one of the biggest Country Music and Camping festivals in the South.

Each participant will have the opportunity for two sets, one song per set and the top 5 scoring performers will move on to the final audition on March 8th.

On February 8th the auditions continue; for bands only. Beginning at 7pm at the SOS Music Hall, each band will perform a 20 minute set. Unlike the solo and duet auditions at least 2 bands from this audition will be chosen to play at the Suwannee River Jam and a third will be designated a wildcard. (Wildcards will fill any available lot during the Jam).

Spaces are limited, so apply early. You can fill out an application online https://www.suwanneeriverjam.com/contests/

Auditions are free to attend, so come out and enjoy some local talent as they fight for their chance to perform at the Suwannee River Jam!
