He was the co-host of the popular Monday Night Jams where musicians from all over the state would come and “jam”. No matter what level of proficiency the musicians had, Sammy was always encouraging and open to teach. He was the kind of guy that if you needed something, he would give it. If you needed a
meal, he would cook it. If you needed a place to stay, the couch was set up for you. He was a large part of the Brevard music scene and many fellow musicians turned to him in times of need. He was a true humanitarian and excellent musician.
He passed away in 2008. This memorial jam was founded to benefit local area musicians and music professionals as a way for him to continue to help the people he loved. We will also remember and celebrate the lives of other musicians and friends that have passed, with a special remembrance for Don Fournier who was also a part of the Monday Night Jams and was a great humanitarian, musician and friend as well.
This years entertainment will be some of Brevard's most popular bands including Last Chance Band, FUNPIPE, The Bonedogs, and RJ Campbell (Blues Artist, Tampa), .
