November Cruise on the Horizon


Chieli Minucci and Musicians for a Cause

ChieliGerald2.jpgSays Chieli, "This fall, I hope you will join us for an incredible long weekend (starting in Miami) of great music, a fun 70's disco party and more importantly for a great cause. This jazz cruise we will donate a portion of the proceeds to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. I am very excited to be able to help out this worthy organization as they educate and work to prevent domestic violence."

Chieli adds, "The guest artists that are involved in this venture are nothing less than stellar performers. I can't think of better performers to represent us in this first event." Jay_Beckenstein Spyro_Gyra.jpg
