Just a quick note - Waxajam has been moved from Oct 2020 to April 10, 2021 because of the pandemic. It will still be at the Waxahachie Amphitheater, (Chautauqua Auditorium as the rain backup venue), Lord willing and the Covid-1984 don't rise!... stay tuned!

WAXAJAM 2020 scheduled for Saturday Oct 10, 2020, at the new Waxahachie Amphitheater (down by the creek and the Katy Railyard)... is taking shape. Plan for the music to start at 10 AM and continue non-stop until 9 pm with two (2) stages: the main stage for full bands and a side stage for singer-songwriters. Many WHS grads including the Taylor (Scotty, Sammy) and Todd Brothers (Johnny, Dickie, Bobby, Donnie), Larry White, Bobby Hill, Steve 'Catfish' Cagle, Phil 'Steak' Freeman, Jim Capers and many more are expected to perform. If you previously played Waxajam and would like to again, you'll need 50% of your band/performers to be WHS grads and send a request to: waxajam[@]gmail.com Hurry for spaces are filling up quickly!
Waxajam would like to give a special shout-out thanks to the City of Waxahachie & KBEC Radio for supporting Waxajam 2020!
