Risks and challenges
We have enlisted the talents of more than two dozen local artists to produce this show. We need your financial support to produce a professional, fun and safe event, so please give generously! Proceeds will benefit RHS Bands program, which fostered much of the talent being featured at JazzHop.
In December 2016 the producers of JazzHop organized Fiesta Americana in Fresno's Tower Theatre. That show contributed to a $500 scholarship given to a RHS music student, and we hope Roosevelt start its school year with more funds on Sept. 2nd 2017.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
