In early March our good friend Jean-Sebastien Belleau, better known as JS, and known to some as Johnny Moon-Hammock, left us far too soon.
To honour this beautiful loving man we are throwing him an epic bash, just as he did for his own 30th birthday. ILYJS Fest is a full day of awesome music and friends gathering together as a tribute.
The day will feature many bands rocking both floors of the Montgomery Legion on Kent St. We are also working on coordinating a softball tournament, a bike parade, and more.
The goal is for all proceeds to be donated to Girls+ Rock Ottawa (formerly known as Ottawa Rock Camp for Girls) a cause JS held near and dear to his heart.
So let’s gather all sing along at the top of our lungs for our good pal, brother, son Jean-Sebastien.
