Musicians help musicians. Since 2016, Local 802 has produced a concert series called JAZZ IN THE AFTERNOON (which has now been expanded to include other genres). The concerts feature the very best in Local 802 talent, with donations at the door benefiting the Musicians’ Emergency Relief Fund. On this page are shots of recent concerts. The next show is on Sept. 28 at 5 p.m. featuring the Greg Ruvolo Big Band Collective. To participate in this series, please contact Bettina Covo at (212) 245-4802, ext. 152.
