Legendary music producer Quincy Jones has joined in a million-dollar seed funding round for the music tech startup Jammcard. Jammcard is an invite-only social network for music professionals. It provides “vetted pros” for those in need of musicianship, and exclusive, members-only events. Among the app’s successful musical matches has been assembling live bands for the likes of Gwen Stefani, Zedd, Maren Morris, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jason Derulo and Grace VanderWaal, among others.
“I’m excited and supportive about what Jammcard is doing for music professionals. Jammcard elevates the industry in new ways, from connections and new opportunities, to helping represent themselves in a freelance world. Thank-Q!,” Jones said.
Quincy is known for having a powerful impact on the future of the music industry. With over seven decades of experience in entertainment, his investments navigate the most effective and innovative spaces of music technology.
“I’m honored to have Quincy on the Jammcard team. I love that he’s continued to push jazz and real talent forward, and I can’t wait to see where our working relationship leads. Quincy’s endorsement excites me on another level, and I will use that fire to continue to work as hard as I can to grow true value for the professional music community,” said Elmo Lovano, founder of Jammcard.
In addition to Jones, the company says it has a variety of angel investors and entertainment industry figures who contributed to this latest funding round.
