UNION – Jazzfest For The Homeless will take place on Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Salem Roadhouse Café, 829 Salem Road, Union (Townley Presbyterian Church) from 5 until 9 p.m. Admission is $15 per person, and additional donations will be accepted. All proceeds benefit Monarch Housing Associates, which helps end homelessness. Top name jazz artists from New Jersey and New York will perform.
“This is the second year for us to hold a Jazz Benefit concert,” said Bruce Tangowski, director of the Salem Roadhouse Café. “Last year we dedicated our show and raised over $1,200 towards Haiti Earthquake Relief. We see the JazzFest for the Homeless as a natural extension of our monthly Roadhouse music shows.”
Richard Brown, director of Monarch Housing Associates, said, “We’re proud that our mission of ending homelessness can attract a venue like the Salem Roadhouse Café. Previous shows, such as the Blank-Fest, have helped us end homelessness by developing permanent, affordable and supportive housing.”
Carrie Jackson, a well known New Jersey and NewYork jazz performer, is helping the Roadhouse Café to organize and host the event, and will be lending her amazing vocal talents to the show. Alan Rosenthal on piano, Thaddeus Expose on bass, and Earl Grice on drums will be part of her group, Carrie Jackson and The Jazzin’ All Stars.
Jazzfest For The Homeless will feature continuous performances by jazz artists from opening to close.
