At some point or another in life we “get by with a little help from our friends” and a lot of the time music is that remedy, a cure of sorts. We’re bringing you some of our favorite local artists with Digital DubJam 2020.
DubJam, over the years grew from hearing about great Georgia music artists from across the state, to getting to groove to their sounds quite literally in our front yard, at Stubbs Park in Dublin, GA. The first notes of DubJam were heard in 2016 when Dublin hosted Bicycle Ride Across Georgia during their overnight camp and the high notes of musical performance and art followed every summer during three years of DubJam, a three day music & art festival.
These artists played, sang and jammed straight from theirs hearts, right into ours during DubJam. Over the next several weeks while you’re looking for a musical reprieve, look and follow these artists up on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube and keep an ear on their Facebook accounts for personal live performances right in your home with Digital DubJam!
