Encore Set for GemJammin’ Tucson 2012
The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) is pleased to announce the return of GemJammin’ in conjunction with the 2012 AGTA GemFair™ Tucson. Back by popular demand, this open-to-all trade professionals music jam, is a benefit for Jewelers For Children. The event will be held at The Hut on February 2, 2012, from 8PM to the last lingering note fades in the early morning hours. Participation and attendance is open to all members of the gem, mineral and jewelry industries.
On February 2, 2012 GemJammin’ Tucson 2012 will offer the opportunity for jewelry industry musicians to take the stage, playing together in an un-rehearsed, and spontaneous musical evening. AGTA is once again producing and underwriting this unique event.
“In 2011 GemJammin’ netted over $5,000 for Jewelers for Children,” said AGTA’s CEO Douglas K. Hucker, “I’m sure we can top that this time. We expect more musicians and more fans to perform and attend,” he continued.
