JAM On It is kept together by the support of the people that continuously attend our gatherings and events (you!). We are a small group of friends and family from Southern and Northern California that come together to enjoy music, dancing, art, nature, fellowship, and to experience life in a positive way.
We’ve been doing this since the Summer of 2000 and will continue to do it as long as we can. You can find us in the forest, the desert, a warehouse, or a city club. Regardless of the venue, you will find us on the dance floor surrounded by friends and smiling faces.
Slinky (Slinky Family Gathering) is a labor of love; a project put on by individuals with an intense appreciation for music, dance, and community. When we gather, we come together as one. Originating from all different areas of the world and all different walks of life, music is the glue that binds us together. Music is a language ubiquitously understood by all. The beats, the rhythm, the vocals, and the feelings that music evokes are universal. We gather to express our happiness and enjoyment of life and each other through music and dance.
Over the past 20 plus years we have met many wonderful people, many of which have become integral parts of our daily lives on and off the dance floor. We have grown with each other over the years and together we have experienced marriage, divorce, careers, the birth of children, and the death of loved ones. Through all of this, one thing has remained consistent with us, Slinky. As we get older and take on more responsibility in life, our opportunities to get out and lose ourselves for a night under the stars are fewer and far between. It is an honor and a privilege for us to be able to provide Slinky as an annual reunion of family, friends, and acquaintances where we can come together and enjoy the things so instrumental in the development of our lives. These are the things that made us who we are today.
To us, Slinky is an extension of our lives. As our lives change and progress, so will Slinky. This is what makes Slinky such an amazing experience. We strive every year to bring you something new, fresh, and unique while at the same time remaining true to our core tenets and maintaining the same energy and vibe you have all come to know and love. We look forward to continuing to grow with you and be part of your lives, as you are a part of ours. Itis truly a blessing to watch our loved ones produce beautiful children and watching those children grow up in a loving community of positively focused individuals. We think of Slinky as Family, Community and most of all Love.
As we progress and grow together we want to encourage all attendees of our gathering and events to become creatively involved. Become participants. We want you to feel a piece of ownership in making the gathering enjoyable for those you encounter and those that encounter you. What this means is that we want you to bring out your art, theme camp set up, costumes, or safe technology that will enhance the gathering experience for everyone.
