Are you READY 2 ROCK for a worthy cause? METAL JAM is an annual Los Angeles area Jam-for-Charity event, where everyone's a star! Proceeds from Metal Jam will once again go to benefit THE CENTER FOR AUTISM & NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS - an organization of parents, clinicians and leading scientists committed to accelerating the pace of biomedical research in autism through raising money for research projects, education and outreach.


Please take a moment to check out their website and learn more about Autism and what you can do to help. THE CENTER FOR AUTISM & NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS is doing great things to provide help and hope for individuals and families living with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders. To make an online donation directly to THE CENTER FOR AUTISM & NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS,  PLEASE CLICK HERE.



Metal Jam is an annual event where musicians of all levels get together to play their favorite metal music on stage for charity. Once again, we are proud to be supporting the THE CENTER FOR AUTISM & NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS.


Shortly after the song list is determined, sign-ups are taken through a form here on our official website. We then take the submissions and create a roster based on the participants primary and alternate selections. Once complete, the roster is posted here on the site.


From that point, it is up to the various musicians to learn their parts prior to the event.

The night of Metal Jam, the musicians who have been assigned songs will need to check in before the show and find out the assigned number of the song that they are playing. It's important for you to keep track of your song number as the emcee (KNAC's JUNKMAN!) introduces each song by it's name and number as well as calling out the name and number of the song that is "on deck" so you can get ready (tune, etc.) prior to performing your song, which will keep the evening running smoothly.


Metal Jam is a charity event. $15 tickets are available exclusively through and $15 at the door. Guests with tickets will be given priority entrance at 4pm. All proceeds from admission goes to THE CENTER FOR AUTISM & NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS. Additional donations throughout the night are encouraged but not required. The more we make, the more we give. As in the past, we will be raffling off various items throughout the evening. Items are donated by generous business owners, musicians and various music stores or websites.

Admission for participants, whether musical or volunteer is $5, payable on the day of the show at sign-in.



Please contact us at with any questions, concerns or ideas and we will do our very best to assist you. We really appreciate your desire to help.


Metal Jam is seeking raffle prize donations. In addition to a tax write-off, donors will have their name/logo printed on the Metal Jam 2022 commemorative brochure, displayed as part of Gaslamp's multi-TV slideshow and will be mentioned on stage during the event. For more information, please contact Cindy Spaulding at
