10 Ways to JaM with Us–Near or Far

If you couldn’t tell, we’re pretty big fans of music around here. And honestly, with a name like “JaM Cellars” how could we not?!

When our founders, John and Michele (the ”J” and the “M” in JaM) launched JaM Cellars, their main goal was to make delicious, accessible wines that everyone could sip back and enjoy.  You know how sharing a great bottle of wine brings people together? Well, we think great music does that, too!

To keep the JaMs (and wine) flowing at all times, here are all the ways we have for you (Our JaMFans!) to JaM with wine, music, and us–from curated Spotify playlists to in-person music events!

1. “Summer Festival JaMs” playlist on iHeartRadio

Keep sippin’ on the best summer JaMs, all year long! Our perfect pour of all your favorite festival artists from BottleRock Napa Valley to Ohana Fest, and more. Keep those summer vibes rolling and tune into our “Summer Festival JaMs” playlist, poured by JaM Cellars on iHeart radio! This sweet summertime playlist is perfect to sip on for any occasion.

Just sip n’ click play!

2. JaMHappyHour

JaMHappyHour is our LIVE wine and music show, hosted every #WineWednesday and Thursday @ 4:00pm PT on our JaM Cellars Facebook and YouTube.

Over the past year (and counting!) we’ve been lucky to virtually host a wide variety of talented musicians from all across the country, including The California Honeydrops, Mondo Cozmo, The Ghost of Paul Revere, Matt Costa, Luke Mitrani, Will Anderson of Parachute, and SO many more!

This virtual happy hour is a great way to enjoy live music, great wine, and fun times from WHEREVER you’re sipping. Pour yourself a glass of Butter and join us!

3. JaMHappyHour, Benefiting Sweet Relief

Here at JaM Cellars, we truly believe in the healing power of music, so we want to help make a difference in the lives of artists who have made a difference in ours.

On the last Friday of each month, we host a super special LIVE #JaMHappyHour on Facebook and YouTube dedicated to our fabulous non-profit partner, Sweet Relief. The Sweet Relief fund helps support musicians and industry workers who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. As a result of this collaboration, JaM Cellars and Sweet Relief are able to help hundreds of struggling artists!

We usually bring the best and brightest musicians for our #JaMHappyHour, but on Final Friday’s we pull out all the stops. You’ll be treated to shows from the likes of Lisa Loeb, G.Love, and Mondo Cozmo–you’re not going to want to miss these shows!

In addition, for every like, share or comment that’s made virtually during a live performance, JaM Cellars will donate $1–up to $2,500 per show, committing to a minimum of $25k this year. Interested in learning more? Check out our full FB Live schedule here!

Tune-in across the world to watch all of our #JaMPad JaMSessions LIVE on Facebook and YouTube–bonus points if you open a bottle of ButterJaM Cab or Toast Sparkling  (add links) and dance along like no-one’s watching. Or if you’ve got the moves, tag us #JaMCellars!

And, not to brag…but, did we mention that USA Today named BottleRock one of the “10 Best” music festivals in North America? Pretty sweet, if we do say so ourselves. The best part about being Presenting Sponsor? We have passes to give away to YOU, our JaMFans. Sign up for The SCOOP and follow us on FB and the ‘Gram to win(e) and JaM with us at BottleRock Napa Valley, 2022!
