3rd Annual JAZZ AT SUNSET Fundraiser featuring guitarist Peter White with saxophonist Jaared and the Matt Marshak Band for the Long Island Multiple Sclerosis Society Saturday, August 21, 2004 (by Val Vaccaro)
If you’re looking for a chance to hear smooth jazz under the stars this summer in the New York area, you should check out the 3rd Annual JAZZ AT SUNSET Fundraiser to benefit the cure for Multiple Sclerosis on Saturday, August 21st (rain date August 22).
This year’s fundraiser event includes performances by a number of great smooth jazz artists. The show will feature the ever-popular Sony recording artist guitarist Peter White with Three Keys Music/Lightyear recording artist super saxophonist Jaared, and guitarist Matt Marshak with his band. Matt Marshak was the winner of the CD101.9/Absolut Vodka Smooth Jazz Artist Contest last summer. (For artist information, check out www.PeterWhite.com, www.Jaared.com and www.MattMarshak.com). Some other guest artists may also appear at this year’s benefit show.
The JAZZ AT SUNSET fundraiser concert is a very special, local event with a ‘friends and family’ appeal. The show is an exclusive garden party held outdoors in Huntington Station, Long Island with only about 200 lucky people attending the event. Last year, guitarist Peter White and saxophonist Jaared serenaded the happy crowd for over two hours, with a special guest appearance from vocalist Toni Robins, for a perfect, relaxed summer evening!
Proceeds from ticket sales go towards a great cause – helping those in need with Multiple Sclerosis in the Long Island area. Last year’s event raised over $10,000 from ticket sales and contributions. This year, help them to do even better! Tickets for this great “JAZZ AT SUNSET” event are $40 each which includes complimentary food and drinks!! There will also be raffles to win great prizes! Don’t miss this chance to see Peter White, Jaared and Matt Marshak up close on Saturday, August 21 starting 4PM (rain date August 22nd)!!
