— The 14th Annual MammoJam Music Festival will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at Baltimore’s famed 8×10. Proceeds will support local breast cancer screening and treatment programs for low income women.

This year’s show has a distinct local flavor as Baltimore blues and funk band Spirit Parade featuring MammoJam favorite Ursula Ricks will headline the show. Brooks Long and the Mad Dog No Good returns on the heels of their hit single and WTMD #2 song of 2016, “Got Soul.” They will be joined by South Baltimore’s Roses n Rust with 33 West making their MammoJam debut.

Festival tickets are $45 in advance and $55 at the door and can be purchased at the 8×10 or at www.mammojam.org. Last year’s festival sold out.

“What’s makes our event so much fun is the way our neighbors and the local businesses come together with our bands to celebrate those touched by breast cancer,” said festival founder Bill Romani.

MammoJam is proud to be working with great organizations like the Hoffberger Breast Center at Mercy Medical Center and the Breast and Cervical Cancer Center at Harbor Hospital to provide diagnostic and treatment services for uninsured and homeless women in the Baltimore area. Since 2009, MammoJam has funded a Translator at Harbor Hospital to help arrange screenings and review test results for Spanish speaking women. In 2016 over 400 women were served through this MammoJam funded program. Advance tickets are $45 and can be purchased through at www.mammojam.org.
