A Benefit Virtual House Party with Performances & Caribbean Home Cooking

November 14, 6:30PM

Newberry Market

5 South Main Street, WRJ, VT 05001


Coming out of the month-long Black Joy Project, JAG Productions will share its creative energy and healing power throughout the Upper Valley and beyond virtually this year during its annual fundraiser Juke Joint on November 14.

The cabaret has been adapted to keep everyone safe while enjoying songs and soul food, ballads and beverages from the comfort of home. Tickets are $75 and include a single meal, cocktail, and the link to watch the virtual performance, or $20 for a ticket to view the show only.

New York-based West Indian-American chef Latoya Henry will prepare soul food with a Caribbean home-cooking twist. Food pickup is from 5:00-6:00 PM (location TBD). The menu will consist of fried chicken with six-cheese macaroni or black-eyed peas, or a vegetarian smoked shepherd’s pie with six-cheese macaroni or potato salad. All dishes include a side of smoked collard greens, bourbon banana bread pudding, and the “Justice Allows Growth” cocktail from JAG Ambassador Wolf Tree craft cocktails.

Cocktails and conversation with surprise guests begin at 6:30 PM and performances begin at 7:00 PM, going until 9:00 PM. The virtual cabaret will feature some of JAG’s favorite artists.
