MusiCares Sober Jam
Presented by the SIMS Foundation at Gibson Guitar Showroom
The MusiCares® Sober Jam is a monthly event presented by MusiCares and their local affiliate partners The SIMS Foundation, Gibson Brands, Inc., and DeMaris Entertainment, offering musicians an opportunity to perform in a safe and sober environment.
It all started when...
The MusiCares Sober Jam was founded in 2006 as a partnership between MusiCares and Gibson Guitar, produced by Brandon DeMaris of DeMaris Entertainment. Over the past decade, the event has featured hundreds of local musicians facing stage fright & performance anxiety, many whom performed for the first time ever and/or for the first time sober at the Sober Jam. A special thanks to our local presenting sponsor, The SIMS Foundation, who offers mental health and addiction recovery services to Austin musicians, music industry professionals, and their families.
