Sign in to view read count
It is well known in the Philadelphia jazz community that bassist Charles Fambrough has been bravely battling some life threatening health problems. Although he has insurance, the co-pays and limitations that his insurance company have placed on his treatment options has forced his family to pay outrageous sums of money to help him. Like many American families, legendary bassist Charles Fambrough is suffering from our broken health care system. He needs our help.

On Thursday March 11th, at Chris' Jazz Cafe, 1421 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA, there will be an All-Star Tribute to Charles Fambrough featuring the best the Philly area has to offer in talent: Sid Simmons, Orrin Evans, Mike Boone, Lee Smith, Bootsie Barnes, Julian Pressley, John Blake, and many, many others. Showtimes are at 8PM and 10PM. Cover: $15.

Jazz Bridge, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to assisting jazz and blues musicians from the Greater Philadelphia Metro area, will be there taking tax-deductible donations.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
