Student performers and artists will gather for one evening to perform in a benefit concert raising money and collecting goods entirely for the Hoosier Hills Food Bank of Bloomington.

The goal of this benefit concert, titled the Bloomington Holiday JAMboree, is to get as many canned food items and monetary donations as possible during this extremely busy time for the Hoosier Hills Food Bank, according to a press release from the Bloomington Holiday JAMboree.   

The concert will take place at 8 p.m. Dec. 9 at 330 Eastside Dr. Those wanting to attend the event will need to bring three canned food items or a $5 donation to be admitted.

B-Town Brass Band, Jared Griffin & Side Hustle and ExWo are featured acts of the benefit concert. 

Neo-soul band ExWo is based in Bloomington, according to the group's Facebook page. The ensemble is made up of a vocalist, bassist, pianist, drummer and guitarist. The musicians, united through their love for jazz, perform funk-influenced selections with electric touches, according to ExWo's Facebook page.

IU's B-Town Brass Band plays a variety of musical styles ranging from jazz and rock to funk and hip-hop, according to B-Town Brass Band's Facebook page. Some of the band's recent performances have been in the People's Park music series, IU's homecoming parade and at Food Truck Fridays in Bloomington.
