Join us to celebrate work from several of our artists. The show will be up from now until April 6. We'll be hosting a reception March 6th. Come by to meet the artists, mingle, enjoy some live music, and see some lovely art.
The theme for this show is RED. We'll be donating a portion of our sales from this show to (RED).
(RED) is a division of The ONE Campaign, a global grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization also co-founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver. ONE fights extreme poverty and preventable disease (including HIV/AIDS), particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressing political leaders to support smart, effective policies and programs that are saving lives, helping to put kids in school and improving futures. (RED) was established in 2006 to drive corporate profits into the Global Fund to fund AIDS programs in Africa. (RED) has contributed over $275 million to support Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia. So far more than 55 million people have been reached with prevention, treatment, counseling, and care services through these grants. You can read more about them here: red.org
By early 2013, pianist Roy Regalario and guitarist Zoltan Medveczky departed from SGB to focus on their mutual passion for jazz music. Joined by bassist Charlito Angeles and drummer Michael Respicio, the quartet formed a new collaborative, New Jazz Review, to begin celebrating the legendary American jazz artists and music from the 1950’s and 60’s, including standards from Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and Wes Montgomery.
But paying tribute to the masters of jazz was not their only cure. With the aid of Regalario’s compositional and theoretical savvy, and now in 2014 with the addition of saxophonist and vocalist Steve Monteclaro, New Jazz Review is forging their own sound through a tightly-knit series of live performances and guest appearances in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a studio and recording session on the horizon for 2015.
