CJF's GIVE THE BAND A HAND 2022 - honoring Don Was & Jeff Clayton
251 S Olive St, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA
The California Jazz Foundation is excited to announce that our annual Gala “Give the Band a Hand!” will take place Saturday, April 30th at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel beginning at 5:30 pm. We hope you will share in our special evening and join us in saluting two revered musicians as we acknowledge their immense contributions to our industry.
We are honored this year to present The Nica Award to the triple-Grammy winning musician/producer, and President of the iconic label “Blue Note Records,” DON WAS. We will also, posthumously, celebrate the life of our beloved friend JEFF CLAYTON, saxophonist extraordinaire, with The Heritage Award.
Our evening will once again begin with a red-carpet reception and silent auction; followed by a gourmet dinner; exciting live auction; heartfelt tributes and a one hour spectacular concert celebrating both honorees.
Hosted by the renowned comedian and CJF supporter, Alonzo Bodden with special guest performances by Grammy winning jazz and blues artists including:
Tribute to DON WAS: Marcus Miller, Ronnie Foster, Paul Jackson, Jr., and Clayton Cameron
Salute to JEFF CLAYTON: The Rickey Woodard Quintet with Adam Ledbetter, Don Littleton, Edwin Livingston and Charlie Owens
As many of you know, “Give the Band a Hand!” is just that – an opportunity to help countless California jazz musicians in their time of need. It is our largest fundraising event of the year – making possible our mandate to help those who have brought so much joy into our lives, often with little reward. Having endured much hardship during these past two years, these artists need us now more than ever. Many will not make it through without our help. As CJF is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, your contributions are tax deductible. We do hope you will join us for a spectacular evening and support CJF in our efforts to make a difference when it is most critical!
