Great evening at impresario and music promoter Michael Dorf’s jazz concert fundraiser to benefit the Thomas Chapin film at his City Winery restaurant/event space (155 Varick Street, NYC, 10013) on January 20, 2014. As many know, Dorf was the big giver at the film’s fundraising campaign at Kickstarter, backing it with $10,000. 100% of the proceeds from the concert fundraiser has gone toward the film!
The fundraiser headlined these world-class musicians and poets: John Zorn, Mario Pavone, Dave Douglas, Ned Rothenberg, Marty Ehrlich, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Matt Wilson, Michael Blake, Roy Nathanson, Bob Musso, Arthur Kell, Saul Rubin, Steve Dalachinsky, John Richey, Steve Bernstein, Marcus Rojas, Pablo Aslan, Peter McEachern, Jennifer Charles, Oren Bloedow and many more.
The proceeds from the City Winery fundraiser will allow filmmaker Stephanie Castillo to begin her 2nd film shoot of interviews in NYC in April, 2014.
