Truth Revolution Records, Revive Music Group, Motéma Music and DL Media are proud to join forces to bring the jazz community together for one night to raise much needed funds for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in the outer boroughs. The concert is being sponsored by the Jazz Foundation of America to offer support to the many jazz musicians that have been directly affected. Please join us at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleeker St., between Sullivan & 5th Ave.) this Thursday, November 8, 2012 from 9PM to 2AM where a number of musicians from the New York community and beyond, including David Weiss & Point of Departure, Julian Lage, Gregory Hutchinson, Jesse Fischer, Philip Dizack, Manner Effect, Richie Barshay and many others, will come together in an evening filled with music that will inspire and touch many to give generously for Hurricane Sandy victims.
The support from the jazz community was overwhelming and collectively these organizations have set out to raise $100,000 both in person and online via a live video feed provided by Le Poisson Rouge. Viewers who are not able to participate in person will be able to call in and donate in real time as well as make donations online. The suggested donation for this event starts at $20, with 100% of the contributions going directly to the fund. For those who double their donation and above will also receive a digital download of the event.
Since the recovery has only begun, this evening will serve as a catalyst for ongoing donations. These organizations are also using this opportunity to partner with corporations and local businesses to match donations dollar for dollar. The outpour of support from the five New York boroughs to the affected community is unprecedented. Coming together for a night of music and solidarity is another way to provide more assistance to those in need.
Musicians and music appreciators alike are welcome to join a very special jam session immediately following the performances. Again, the suggested donation for this event starts at $20 and for those who double their donation and above will also receive a digital download of the event. Live video streaming will be available online for those not able to be with us in person.
