Four years ago as a pouring rights sponsor of Crop Over, Bryden Stokes sought to further cement the company’s involvement with the Festival through the conceptualisation of the STAG Jam Tune, to recognise the most frequently played song during the Foreday Morning Jam. Their aim was to create the same kind of recognition of popular music for the Foreday Morning Jam as pertains during Grand Kadooment, and to allow the musicians and artistes to pursue another avenue for earning revenue during the Festival.

Entries into the competition that met the stipulations on registration were eligible for judging at the Foreday Morning Jam. A panel of tabulators selected by the NCF was discretely positioned along the parade route to record the number of times each song was played by registered bands, similar to what happens for the Tune of Crop at Grand Kadooment.

Earlier in the season, the NCF had announced an increase in the prize offering, thanks to the sponsor STAG.
