THE Coffs Coast will remember the contribution of past musicians at a special gig on Saturday.

The annual Uncle Tom's Jam - A Session to Remember - will be held at Woolgoolga's Seaview Tavern to give relatives, friends and music lovers the opportunity to celebrate the lives of musos no longer with us.

Event Organiser Ian Foskett said the impact many local musicians have had lasts long after they are gone.

"The session was inspired by friend and Jampact partner, the late Tom Kelly, who made a huge contribution to the local music scene," Mr Foskett said.

"Tom played in many local bands, taught, composed, wrote and recorded music he also encouraged many younger community members to play music and he should not be forgotten."

The jam session will also pay tribute to Dave Mason, Keith Jenner (Fish), Dave Amster  (Dr. Sax), James Dempsey, Clayton Dillon, Henry Groenendyk, Steve Currie, Tony McKimm and Robert Hancock (Hank).

Mr Foskett said the format would allow musicians that arrive early to book a spot on stage with full production and instruments provided.

Tom Kelly's sister Rosanne is giving all musicians taking part a special Uncle Tom's t-shirt.

There will also be prizes given away on the night from sponsors Park Beach Music, Envy Hair and Beauty Centre, Video Ezy, Woolgoolga Jewellers and Woolgoolga's Finest Butcher.

The Session to Remember starts at 7pm downstairs at the Seaview Tavern.
