Going into Thanksgiving, Headroom Digital Audio, a commercial sound and mixing studio in New York, hosted a showcase/jam to help the hungry. The event raised $2,000 for Food Bank for New York City -- the equivalent of 10,000 meals, according to Headroom.
The showcase featured a new act from Toronto, Grand Analog, while the jam session afterward featured mostly musicians with day jobs in advertising.
Headroom used to hold monthly industry jam sessions, but stopped two years ago. "People kept asking me when are we going to do the jams again," Headroom owner Jerry Plotkin said. "When I read about the work the Food Bank for NYC was doing, I thought it would be great to reprise the famed JamNight to make some truly joyous noise."
