The Pour House's fourth annual Turkey Jam was a music-filled marathon. Things kicked off at 1 p.m. with a kid-friendly set on the deck by the V-Tones and wrapped up inside well after midnight with Dangermuffin, who helped organize the event. From bluegrass to funk, the songs and beer kept flowing with each band typically playing five or six tunes before surrendering the stage to the next group. The talent was heavy but the mood was light as the crowd continued to grow throughout the day, first filling the deck and then filtering inside for the final sets.

"This year we decided it'd be a great time to do a little bit bigger show," said Dangermuffin drummer Steven Sandifer, "and to bring together as many of our musical family folks that are around, along with the family here at the Pour House and do a show to benefit our neighbors." All proceeds from this year's event go to the Lowcountry Food Bank, which can turn each dollar raised into 10 meals for local families who might otherwise go hungry this Thanksgiving.
