Benefit Concert for Haiti Organized in NYC

The Groove Collective presents fundraising show with special guests at Le Poisson Rouge on Tuesday, January 19

With the world’s eyes affixed to the disaster in Haiti, it’s likely that there will be plenty of benefits organized by the jazz community to raise money for the earthquake victims. However, the acid-jazz-funk band Groove Collective may be the first with its impromptu benefit concert scheduled for Tuesday, January 19 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City. The concert will feature that band, plus DJ Logic, Bernie Worrell and Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio, as well as various surprise special guests.
