Work for NYC’s musicians has come to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic as performances have been cancelled and venues have closed indefinitely. Live From Our Living Rooms Music Festival and Fundraiser will help to fill in the gap for struggling musicians by bringing the joy of music live-streamed from artists’ homes in NYC to viewers anywhere in the world. Viewers will have the opportunity to donate online, raising funds to provide performance grants awarded to musicians during this crisis.

Organized by NYC musicians Sirintip, Thana Alexa, Owen Broder and their nonprofit partner MusicTalks, the festival is proud to present a stellar lineup of artists contributing their time and talents to this cause. As the community is doing its part to stay safe and help prevent the spread of the virus, a stellar line-up of musicians will perform solo or in small groups who live under the same roof. Starting on April 1 and continuing through April 7, there will be 28 performances in 7 days: 2 evening performances, 1 masterclass or interdisciplinary presentation and 1 children’s show. Shows will be streamed on Crowdcast and simulcast on each artist’s Facebook pages.

Participants include Chick Corea, Joe Lovano & Judi Silvano, Linda May Han Oh & Fabian Almazan, Becca Stevens, Bill Frisell, Christian McBride, Antonio Sanchez & Thana Alexa, Owen Broder, Sirintip, Julian Lage, Dave Liebman, Tali Rubenstein, Michael Mayo, and many others.



The organization is soliciting tax deductible donations from audience members and institutional funders to provide performance grants to NYC musicians who submit an application and meet our performance grant criteria. The application for air will be released on March 31st and due back by April 8th with payouts to be processed before the end of the month. More information about the application, eligibility and deadlines can be found here.

All performances are free for viewers, but every dollar counts. Find out more at here.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
