The band you’re hearing now came about because a few friends were just jamming. That was 45 years ago, and Jest Jammin’ still plays throughout northern California.
Considered the last of the Chinatown jam bands, Jest Jammin’ is part of the entertainment at the 4th annual Chinatown Music Festival, which takes place on Saturday, August 17. Festivities begin in San Francisco’s historic Portsmouth Square, at 11:00am and continue to 5:00pm. You can get all the details at the Chinese Cultural Center website.
