Local Jazz Musicians to Help Raise Funds for New Mexico Food Bank Association to Buy More Fresh Produce

Sunday March 2, 2014, 5-8 p.m.
African-American Performing Arts Center
New Mexico Fair Grounds      Albuquerque
Free Parking     Free Admission     Catering by the Cooperage

So you're wondering how a free event can be a fundraiser. Dozens of jazz musicians are performing for free next Sunday to raise funds for the New Mexico Association of Food Banks to buy fresh produce.

So if you don't pay admission at the gate, how is money raised?  Hint. Hint. Please bring your checkbook with you (or a wad of cash). All  of the proceeds (that's 100 percent) will go to the purchase of fresh produce.

The sponsors of the event include Faith, Hope and Jazz  (a weekly experiment in jazz worship and community experience, sponsored by Monte Vista Church), Monte Vista Christian Church and the New Mexico Association of Food Banks (NMAFB)

"We are very excited to be the beneficiary of this generous partnership between New Mexico musicians and Monte Vista Christian Church. New Mexico is home to some of the finest musicians in the world, and we’re looking forward to being able to see so many of them playing on the same stage,” said NMAFB director Kathy Komoll. “This event is a wonderful example of the community coming together to help solve hunger in New Mexico.”

By the way, the jazz musicians who will participate in this event include Mike Olivola, Dimi Disanti, Micky Patten, Michael Herndon, Lee Taylor, Carlin Veaglia, John Trentacosta, Milo Jaramillo, Stu Sacco, Stu MacAskie, Douglas Cardwell, Colin Deuble, Jim Ahrend, Asher Barreras, Cal Haines, Sina Soul, Sam Reid, Rte.66 Revelers, Scotty and the Atomics, Rodney Bowe, Cathy McGill, Andy Zydrozny, Michael Anthony, Glenn Kostur, Hillary Smith, and Susan Corley).
