Jeff Loeb and Friends
Don't miss this chance to enjoy some fine local jazz and lend your support to the street children of Quito, Ecuador! All proceeds from this concert will go directly to UBECI, a nonprofit in Ecuador that provides social and academic support to street children and child laborers in Quito. UBECI's mission is to reduce the working hours of street children and child laborers in Quito and to enroll these children in public schools. A US-registered nonprofit with a permanent staff of five individuals, UBECI has placed over 300 children in school in the last five years, relying on donations and volunteers from around the world (visit UBECI.org).
Jazz pianist and composer Jeff Loeb, a longtime Maynard resident, has been active in the Boston-area jazz scene for over 40 years. He has appeared at Concord's Colonial Inn, the Acton Jazz Café, Maynard's River Rock Grill, and other local venues. He has composed jazz, country, and children's music for PBS and NPR, and he manages a recording studio where he works as a professional narrator and audio producer. Jeff will be joined by vocalist Ali Manion, bassist Mike Caruso, drummer Dave Hurst, sax/flute player Jim Repa, and Ken Accardi on "flumpet."
In 2010, Jeff traveled to Ecuador, where he volunteered for UBECI. Deeply moved by the passion and commitment of UBECI's small staff, Jeff volunteered to be UBECI's unpaid North American volunteer coordinator and fundraiser after his third visit in 2011.
