Our friends over at the Art of Cool are gearing up for a 2 day mega music festival down in Durham, NC — a much needed platform for a truly underrated scene — and they need your help to get it funded!

The Jazz Gallery, an “international cultural center” that produces close to 150 performances a year, is working on a Kickstarter campaign to offer free rehearsal space for jazz musicians. The Jazz Gallery is one of the most innovative and fresh performance spaces for up-and-coming artists. For audiences, a donation of $75 a person ($50 per student) gets you significantly discounted ticket prices to see artists like Gretchen Parlato, Ben Williams, Gerald Clayton and many more.

The Jazz Gallery, one of our favorite jazz venues in the city to see music in a unpretentious environment where music and artistic expression come first, is launching The Woodshed at The Jazz Gallery. The Woodshed is a new initiative to offer musicians the use of the Jazz Gallery space at no charge for rehearsals. Starting in 2012, the Jazz Gallery will be available during “dark” hours to artists for about 15 hours per week, resulting in over 750 hours of free rehearsal time for NYC musicians in 2010.

To launch these efforts, the Jazz Gallery has gathered together a gang of the best musicians in town – Marcus Gilmore, Robert Glasper, Mike Moreno, Becca Stevens, Miguel Zenon, Jaleel Shaw, Marcus Strickland and many more – to launch a Kickstarter to set the program into motion.
