On Thursday, November 10th, 2016 PATH Ventures hosted their 11th Annual Holiday Jazz Revue, an unforgettable evening of dinner, music, and fun at the classic Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood, CA. The event featured Jazz Pianist and Composer, George Kahn with an all-star band of L.A. studio artists.

With the help of a sold-out crowd, plus generous corporate sponsors including City National Bank, over $54,000 was donated to directly support affordable housing developments across Southern California.

There are over 45,000 people living on the streets of Los Angeles County on any given night. They are women with children, people struggling with serious health issues, war veterans, seniors, emancipated foster youth, and families who lost everything because of the recession. PATH Ventures’ housing models aim to prevent and end homelessness by integrating supportive services, community development and permanent housing for people in need.

When asked to explain why he does this annual event Kahn explained, “I am so honored to be a catalyst for this event, and I am so proud of my band for giving their time and energy and creating amazing music for the evening. I have friends that have spent time living on the street, and I know the feeling of being one paycheck away from being evicted. This is the least I can do to give back to the community that I have lived in for 40 years.”

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.
