Winter Jam
Winter jam is live concerts by the top artists in Christian music. They travel around the U.S. and perform in different cities. The artist performing this year are Crowder, Andy Mineo, Hillsong Young & Free, Passion, Building 429, Red, Austin French, Newsong, and Zauntee. Winter Jam started in 1995 created by Newsong it was first called January jam because of how it started in early January. The genre goes from Christian rock, Christian rap, and contemporary Christian music. The dates are January – April for the east coast and in November they do the west coast. Every year more than half a million people attend winter jam when in their city. This year I went to the second show they had at the Amalie arena on January 11th the show stated at 6:00 and ended around 11:30. I went with the high school ministry of my church and the price to get in is only $15. When the show is over you can take pictures with any of the artist for free. When they are on tour, they perform 3-4 days in a row then are on a break for 3 days or so. One of the artists,

Austin French his wife just gave birth before the winter jam tour started and his baby isn’t even a month old. Some of my favorite artist that I seen was Andy Mineo, Building 429, Austin French and Zauntee. At the end of the show me and the group of people from my church got to take a picture with him and one of my friends asked him to prom and he said yes. There was a special guest Kevin Quinn from the Disney show bunked, and we all got to meet him as well. The Winter Jam Tour is great and inexpensive.
