Holiday Party: Saturday, December 3rd. 7pm-11pm
We are teaming up with Al and Cicely of Al Strong Music and The Art of Cool Project for an evening of holiday fun! We are throwing a holiday party/live jazz jam session at LabourLove Gallery. This event is FREE TO THE PUBLIC! We will provide the music and the space to cut loose. BYOB and favorite festive goodies. It’s a Potluck, y’all. We are celebrating the Christmas Holiday as well as Al’s birthday.
Information about the Chair Campaign:
In the spirit of Christmas, gift giving, and supporting local charities, The Art of Cool Project (our jazz advocacy group) will be holding a Holiday “Chair” Campaign during the party. Every month the AOCP promotes local talent and one of the monthly costs incurred is chair rental. We’ve held a series of sold out concerts and have realized that these monthly concerts will continue to happen and grow. We’d like to buy chairs in lieu of renting them thus eliminating the rental costs each month. The AOCP’s chair campaign is much like sponsoring a brick. A sponsorship of $40 gets your name put on the back of a concert chair as well as premium/preferred seating to any show in the future with RSVP. Our goal is to get 20 chairs sponsored in order to buy 80 chairs.
Please feel free to sponsor a chair by going toTheArtofCoolProject.com!

About Marcus Anderson:
After his breakthrough in contemporary jazz circles as the 2009 winner of the Capital Jazz Fest Challenge, Marcus Anderson is embracing every opportunity to perform and inspire fans – and most importantly, as the title of his third and latest CD attests, fully living in the NOW. The multi-talented composer, saxophonist, flutist’s, and choreographer has had a powerful ongoing development of his career and his move toward the top tier of contemporary jazz has been unmatched. With the release of NOW, his third solo CD, and fourth release “Tender Loving Christmas”, Anderson’s goal is to capture the energy from his live shows and make this collection of music his most dynamic, joyful and creative recordings yet.
