Jazz Loft founder and president Tom Manuel recently met with New York State Assemblyman Steve Englebright (Assembly District 4) to give the Assemblyman a tour of the museum and performance space and to discuss some of the Loft’s musical programs.
Members of the local business community, Jazz Loft board members, volunteers and a representative from Stony Brook University were also present. Manuel spoke about the Jazz Loft’s Young at Heart daytime concert series which is aimed at seniors, those suffering from memory loss, and their caretakers.
The one-hour programs are designed to be interactive and provide a musical trip down memory lane for audience members. Live music during the Assemblyman’s visit was provided by Steve Salerno and Kennan Zach. Jazz Loft board member and owner of Realty Connect USA Michael Ardolino also attended the meet and greet.
The Jazz Loft is located just 90 minutes from New York City and is the only music venue on Long Island that features exclusively jazz music. Learn more at www.thejazzloft.org.
