Noted R&B guitarist Ray Fuller, who served as music director for superstars Whitney Houston and Anita Baker, and LA’s, 94.7 the Wave's Hugh Fuller will host a roster of celebrated artists in an effort to raise critically needed funds for the Weeper's Friends Foundation's after school program with the YMCA to bring creative arts to at-risk and underprivileged children.

Fri., Sept. 14 – Everette Harp, Frank McComb
Fri., Sept. 21 – Yellow Jackets, featuring Eric Marenthal; Jeff Lorber; Marilyn Scott
Fri., Sept. 28 – Pete Escovedo’s Latin Orchestra & Chielli Minucci

VIP and General Admission seating is available as well as discounts for couples and multi-date concert purchases. VIP admission includes early entry at 6:00 pm, a Q & A mixer with the Artists and dinner.

"Artist4Children is a worth while event that should be supported", says Fuller, who is a long-time supporter of children that have been placed at-risk. "It showcases artists and patrons whose hearts are in the right place and are doing the right thing with their time, talent and treasure."

Weeper's Friends Foundation is a 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1), organization under the National Heritage Foundation. The charitable scope of their work is to nurture gifted and talented artists and encourage them to support children’s causes as they achieve success.

The Jazz Gypsy Tip: We will not be remembered for what we got but rather for what we gave in life.
