FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BASH FOR BRADER - DEER HEAD INN JAZZ ORCHESTRA TO HOST EVENING OF BIG BAND JAZZ TO BENEFIT AILING COLLEAGUE
On Monday July 30 from 7:30 – 10:30 the Deer Head Inn in Delaware Water Gap, PA will present a big band evening to help a fellow musician. Since last winter, Ken Brader – noted educator, and renowned lead trumpet player with the Philadelphia Pops, the COTA Festival Orchestra, JARO, the Phil Woods Big Band, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Patti Page’s Grammy –winning Carnegie Hall CD, just to name a few, has been suffering the effects of a debilitating illness that has left him in a dire financial situation because of the inability for him to earn a living. He has been transported many times to the Wills Eye Institute and Thomas Jefferson Hospital. He’s lost 90% of his vision and cannot walk.
The musicians of the Deer Head Jazz Orchestra would like to invite all to the Deer Head to contribute to this great cause. The first set will consist of the Deer Head Orchestra reading some new Phil Woods charts and then from there it will be a menagerie of performers playing big band music anyone wishes to bring. Collections will be taken throughout the evening. Come one come all –bring horns, charts and above all, the spirit of giving to help a truly great musician and friend.
Donation is $10. At the door and additional donations will be encouraged and appreciated. Checks can be sent to COTA Box 249 Delaware Water Gap, PA 18327
