Why Cal Jam? A Letter from the Founder - TBT October 2013

The number one “WHY” of Cal Jam is to keep this great profession pure and unsullied, to preserve our great philosophy and principles and keep us drug free!!! That was one of the main reasons I went to chiropractic school, because it was a DRUG FREE healing profession.

One of the main WHYs of Cal Jam is to introduce to the world REAL principle-based chiropracTIC, not an allopathic back pain model. As a teenager I went to huge event called California Jam where 250,000 people gathered to celebrate great music. After going to Dynamic Essentials in the late 80’s and literally having Sid Williams change my chiropractic destiny, I was motivated to take that D.E. energy and elevate to the next level with live music.

Now, after 6 years, our Cal Jam vision not only includes chiropractic as the centerpiece, but we also want to shed light on other issues that plague the health of humans and planet earth in the future. The goal is to create an eclectic health festival with music to attract the general public to the event. This is my first year really opening up the schedule to not only the chiropractic story, but also nutrition, exercise, GMOs, Geo Engineering, Natural Child Birth, Vaccines, Fluoride, Breast Health etc. This year will sell out the 3,000 seat Segerstrom Center for the Arts and it will be the largest premiere chiropractic event on the planet.

As this event continues to grow both in size and financial support it is our goal to attract not only bigger sponsors but also bigger, more popular bands (i.e. Red Hot Chili Peppers or Black Crows). With more prominent popular bands our ability to draw larger crowds will be enhanced.

Cal Jam also hosts a black tie Speakers Gala where you can mingle in full elegance at the Center Club with our rockstar speakers. Saturday is the best party EVER thrown in the chiropractic profession with the band Boogie Knights. Costumes and wigs are optional. Sunday is 5 hours of X-ray, if needed.

If sustainability of pure principled chiropractic, getting the big idea to the world and sustainability of the planet and human race resonates with you, you will love Cal Jam. If celebrating the coolest profession and celebrating in a rock n roll party atmosphere tickles your fancy, then this event is right up your alley. Hope to see you there so we can collectively get chiropractic to the world and save the planet.

Love, BillyD
