Presenting a special concert honoring legends Archie Shepp, Bobby Bradford and Peter Erskine, at the Ford on Oct 7th, 2012.

Every year since 2009, the Angel City Jazz Festival has presented our flagship event featuring some of the most innovative creative jazz musicians in the world at the Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood. We were fortunate to have our concert at the Ford last year filmed by KCET. See a clip below:

This year we're producing our special event on Sunday October 7, to honor three of the most influential and rarely heard living legends of jazz: Archie SheppBobby Bradford and Peter Erskine.

Unfortunately KCET was not able to commit funds to film our event again, so we will be responsible for documenting this concert on our own. Although we won't be able to match the budget and quality of KCET's film from last year, we were able to find a couple of talented young filmmaker who are passionate about jazz and willing to work with us for a reduced fee. However, to take advantage of this situation, we need to raise a minimum of $3000 to cover the following expenses:

- rent professional video equipment (cameras, tripods and lights)
- transportation and meal expenses for our film crew 
- post-production expenses

100% of the funds raised by this campaign will go to produce the best possible video we can, so that we can share this wonderful music with more people.

Please note that the Tickets included in the rewards are will call tickets to be picked up at the Ford's Box Office on the day of the event.
