Sept. 11 victims
"One of the New Jersey pop-music scene's most ambitious
efforts to respond to the terrorist attack." - Star-Ledger

members of the music industry offering their help and support, Jersey Jams Fund is proud to announce a five-part, statewide
concert series to coincide with the March 11 release of the Jersey Jams, Jersey Cares charity tribute compilation to the New Jersey families of Sept.

New Jersey musicians who have since offered to loan their support. Momentum
