Sweet Nancy NYC Listening Party / Recap

Whenever we do SHAOLIN JAZZ events in New York, its always love and our Sweet Nancy NYC Listening Party was no different.  And despite us not having done an event in New York in a min, and some rain, the community (as in people walking in not knowing what was even taking place, but intrigued by our SHAOLIN JAZZ sign) in addition to family and friends – showed up making our listening party the kind of experience that we envisioned.

Thank you to Basquiat’s Bottle for hosting and all of your generosity, thank you to all of the artists who exhibited works giving our event that extra layer, much appreciated to everyone who attended, and props to everyone who helped spread the word.
