Facebook ‘Live from Ja’Ville’ tonight: A Decade of the Daysies

Special Announcement

Update: You can now watch the video of the live show. It was really nice seeing folks from all over who enjoy the Daysies’ music.


On Thursday, July 16, Rebecca Day and Jennifer Day Thompson who perform as The Crazy Daysies will mark a special date. This is the tenth year performing, with Rebecca starting out solo and Jenn joining her as a duo a couple years later.

The show begins at 6:30 PM (EDT) when ‘Live from Ja’Ville’ begins on Facebook Live.

The Daysies will debut a new song, draw for special giveaways including some donated by Indie Art South, and make announcements about upcoming events.

Tune in and weigh in on the comments.
