[image-1]The Bend, a new outdoor performance venue in North Charleston, has announced its first Marsh Jam, which will feature local hip-hop, R&B, and blues-rock performers as well as comedians. Originally scheduled for May 4, the Jam has been moved to Thurs. June 1.

Co-presented by Eddie White and the team behind Awendaw Green’s Barn Jams, Marsh Jam features hip-hop artist Tyler Cash, R&B singer-songwriter and one-fourth of IllVibeTheTribe, Poppy Native; hip-hop artist and winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the hip-hop category, Johnny Jr.; comedian Jeremy McLellan; and charismatic blues-rockers, HoneySmoke.

Gates open at 4:30 p.m., and the show ends at 9 p.m.

Formerly Ashley Shores, The Bend is a 17-acre “natural gathering place” on the banks of the Ashley River — more precisely, its address is 3775 Azalea Drive. The venue hopes to “create mindfully with a larger community vision guiding all the decisions.”

Dating back to the 1600s, the Bend plans to deliver cultural events and learning experiences to share with the community.
