BLU Jazz+ teams up with some of the best & big-hearted jazz talent in NE Ohio for a very special show & jam session to raise money for UNICEF to assist the children of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. Featuring Bobby Selvaggio, Chris Coles, Theron Brown, special guest trumpet sensation, Dominick Farinacci & more!

Puerto Rico is in a state of crisis. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, mass flooding and destruction have put children throughout the island at risk.

The governor has warned that this is “the worst hurricane in a century,” and that rebuilding will be a tremendously difficult undertaking.

UNICEF USA is mobilizing to get immediate, critical support — Emergency Relief Kits — to the children of Puerto Rico.

BLU Jazz+ is teaming up with some of the best & big-hearted jazz talent in NE Ohio for a very special show to raise money to assist the children of Puerto Rico. 100% of our box office proceeds will go toward providing Emergency Relief Kits, containing basic, essential supplies such as water purification tablets, a water bucket with lid, water containers, soap, toothpaste, detergent and sanitary pads. The supplies will help children and their families keep clean and healthy, protecting them from diseases that can occur after the loss of equipment and infrastructure and the disruption of a safe water supply. Additional donations to UNICEF for the hurricane relief effort can be made here: unicefusa.org/Hurricane/Donations‎.

UNICEF is a global leader in emergency response, last year reaching children in 344 humanitarian emergencies across 108 countries. They stand ready to provide aid before, during and after a crisis.

Please join us at BLU Jazz+ as we shine the spotlight on this humanitarian crisis and draw upon the power of music to help those in need during these trying times! Saxophonists Bobby Selvaggio & Chris Coles, along with pianist Theron Brown, will give a very special performance with their band featuring special guest trumpet sensation, Dominick Farinacci, culminating with an open jazz jam at the end of the night! Let's band our NE Ohio jazz community together for a great cause — get your tickets now!
