Money4Jam is here

Dum dum da. Triumphant trumpets and bugles blowing announce the online arrival of Money4Jam, StarJam’s way cool Busking Challenge. I could tell you all the great opportunities and the very tempting prizes for you and your mates but best you go and have a look at the website. You’ll see people from Hollywood raving about it…… not hundreds of them…. yet. You’ll enjoy seeing Joe Mantegna from TV1’s hit show Criminal Minds and also Dominic Bowden, our very own Kiwi star now based in LA. http://www.money4jam.org/ We’ll keep you posted about all the teams who are signing up. The sooner you sign up, the nearer the top of the website you will be 🙂 If you make a video of your busking and load it up, it will be considered for a very special prize and even better celebrity judges Temuera Morrison, Ben Lummis and Ray Woolf will look at the videos to decide the winner. Yes, all very exciting. J

First “International” Summit

The crew from Hamilton arrived bright-eyed and bushy tailed On Sunday to join the Auckland tutors and volunteers for StarJam’s first multi-StarPod Summit. Yes it’s true we only have two at the moment but the north-south team spirit started within a few minutes. Starting with spontaneous CoolJam ‘workshop’ performances we saw Ali from North Shore (Auckland) Dazzling Dance singing a very entertaining version of “My favorite things.” She teamed up with Kat and Charrissa from Hamilton’s Sensational Singing workshop to give a fantastic performance. The words they created were something else…. all about Blue StarJam T shirts and sparkly sequins things, which they said were some of their favorite things. Each of the four group performances was stunning especially and they had only had 30 minutes to prepare. The spontaneous Dazzling Dance performance included Jessica (volunteer Central Hip Hop- Auckland), Carola, tutor West Dazzling Dance – Auckland, Loren and Laurelle, the two Dazzling Dance tutors from Hamilton workshops and Phil and Susan, volunteers from Auckland. There was more hilarity and some careful manoevering in the musical wheelchairs game. Amongst all the magical moments shared amongst the group were some really moving stories with tissues needed here and there. The group shot was taken at afternoon tea time when everyone down-tooled their drinks and scones to pose. Thanks to Patrick Bellett who took these great shots for coming to join in on the activities. Roll on next year’s Summit.
