It’s a big night for #JIMWeek because we honor vanguards and trailblazers who have paved the way for independent music in central Mississippi. This year we honor four ICONS: Verbia Harden of WKXI; Sherman Lee Dillon, Bluesman; Leonard Williams, Gospel music great; and Photographer, the late James Patterson.
Immediately after is the R&B showcase with Krystal Gem, SiKa, BrothaJosh and The Quickness + MANY MORE!
