It’s no secret that UNC is home to a lot of musically talented students. Chances are, if you’ve taken a stroll through the Pit, you’ve probably seen a cappella groups advertising one of their upcoming concerts. And if you ventured into Fraternity Court on game day, there’s likely been a band or two performing.
If you wanted to join a club last year that catered toward musicians who just want to jam out and play music, though, you were out of luck. That is, until Carolina Jams formed in March and took the stage as one of UNC’s newest clubs on campus this semester.
On Thursday, Nov. 30, Carolina Jams is hosting their end-of-semester concert. Hosted at Local 506 on West Franklin Street, UNC bands Web Threats, From the Breakdown and State of Uncertainty will be performing.
Zac Gonzalez, president and founder of the club, said this is Carolina Jams' first formal concert.
Proceeds from the concert will go to Community Music School of Raleigh, which provides underprivileged children with one-on-one music lessons and learning.
