On March 23, about 10 days after temporarily closing the venue to the public, we received an email from one of our musician friends who had just performed at our space. The letter had the most amazing, surprising, gracious words we have received during this miserable time that had just begun.
And within a week, we received a donation from Café Royal Cultural Foundation. Their only "request" for us is to stay open for the community.

At that time, we had just paid a large monthly bill to our insurance company (that has an exclusion clause for Loss due to Virus or Bacteria) and rent was also coming up.

We cannot be more grateful for their generosity and will continue to do our best. Although it looks like we are a little "quiet" now, but we will have a lot of "noise" coming soon!

Café Royal Cultural Foundation awards grants of up to $10,000 to visual artists, performers and writers and in some cases up to $30,000 for musicians.
The remaining grant cycles for 2020 are March 2 - May 18, June 1 - August 31 and September 14 - November 16. Visit their website, apply and let them know what you are creating!

Good Luck!

4pm Doors, 5pm Concert

https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4297501

On August 11th, New York City based musicians will come together for a one-of-a-kind benefit concert in support of the ACLU's work to protect immigrant rights. As a response to the atrocities committed at the southern border, we will unite to celebrate our shared humanity and raise funds to bring dignity and justice to this country's newest migrants. The jazz community is one comprised of many immigrants. This concert is both a show of solidarity and a call to support the important work of the ACLU.

"But we're not just responding to the moment we're building for immigrant justice in the future. The ACLU is a nationwide organization, with an on-the-ground presence in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Because we have a vibrant presence in every state, we at the ACLU are not only able to push back against abuses and litigate, but also work to enact pro-immigrant rights laws." - ACLU

Music For Human Rights

New York Times: MUSIC FOR HUMAN RIGHTS at ShapeShifter Lab (Aug. 11, 5 p.m.). Four noted contemporary jazz bandleaders are on the bill at this show, which aims to raise awareness on behalf of migrants detained at the United States’ southern border; proceeds from ticket sales will go to the American Civil Liberties Union. The drummer Antonio Sanchez will lead a quintet, the tenor saxophonist Dayna Stephens and the pianist Shai Maestro will each bring a trio, and the pianist Aaron Parks will perform a solo set. Judy Rabinovitz, the deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, will deliver remarks.
