Sunday Sounds: Jazz for a Cause

January 7 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Generally the first Sunday of every month, Big Wrench Piano Care, in partnership with Sunday Sounds, presents a free live show, often featuring a vintage electric piano from our shop.  This is a fabulous chance to hear professional musicians playing genuine analog pianos such as a Fender Rhodes or Wurlitzer, in a unique and intimate setting.  Great guitars from our sister company Brooklyn Fine Guitars are also sometimes featured.  Another great reason to attend is that a portion of your donation will support a different charity every month.  Past charities and causes that have benefitted include the Alzheimer’s Association, National Endowment for the Arts and the ALS Association.  Your support is important for both live and professional music and important charities!

All shows begin at 7:30pm in the mezzanine space at 61 Local, 61 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, NY. Free admission with suggested donation of $20 is encouraged to support live music and the charity featured in the show.  All ages are welcome.  Shows usually feature 2 shorter sets with soda, beer, wine and food available at the bar.

This night in the series features Chris van Voorst van Beest trio with Kyle Wilson and Hayden Hawkins and is a benefit for the Coalition for the Homeless.
