To our friends and family of JMI,
We have been keeping a close eye on all developments, updates and advice from Federal and State Government, as well as Health authorities. We understand that it is our responsibility to reduce the further spread of this virus and flatten the curve.
Due to the unprecedented and unfolding circumstances related to COVID-19, JMI Live will unfortunately be shutting our big red doors to the public until further notice.
However, JMI Live is blessed to have our Live-Stream up and running on both YouTube and our Facebook page.
At this present time, this gig will still be going ahead but ONLINE! 
This will be a trying time for the entertainment and hospitality industry as a whole, so please join us from 8PM every Thursday to keep the music swingin’!
