Jam for Justice is back in person and with a new format for 2022
Legal Aid’s annual summer fundraiser returns with a new format with three opportunities to rock to local bands headlined by local attorneys, judges, and law students. The main Jam for Justice event is Thursday, September 8 at the House of Blues Cleveland and features the debut of the “General Counsel Glee Club.” Two smaller “Jam Sessions” take place in the weeks prior: the East Side Jam Session at BottleHouse Brewery on Wednesday, August 24 and the West Side Jam Session at The Brothers Lounge on Wednesday, August 31.
The September 8 show at House of Blues will begin at 6:00 PM with a DJ set by Brad Wolfe (Brad Wolfe Law, L.L.C.), followed by First Offenders and Faith & Whiskey (headlined by Ohio Supreme Court Justice Michael Donnelly). Between the two bands, the General Counsel Glee Club – a chorus of in-house counsel singing to support Legal Aid – will make their first performance at 7:15 PM! Brad Wolfe and Delanté Spencer Thomas (President, Norman S. Minor Bar Association) will serve as emcees for the event.
The East Side Jam Session will include music by Luke Lindberg & The Hung Jury, and by Case Western Reserve University School of Law’s Razing the Bar (headlined by law school dean Michael Scharf). The West Side Jam Session will feature music by The No Name Band and Out of Order. Stephanie Haney, digital anchor and legal analyst at WKYC Studios, will serve as emcee for both Jam Session events.
Legal Aid thanks numerous local sponsors for their continued support, especially Presenting Sponsor Accellis Technology Group; Media Sponsor WKYC Studios; and Platinum Sponsors The J.M. Smucker Co., Squire Patton Boggs, Taft/, and Tucker Ellis LLP.
