Live Jazz Concert earns Nafl. 4,376.94 for Cultural Center Curaçao

In honor of Avila’s Blues Bar & Restaurant’s 25th anniversary

WILLEMSTAD – Friday December 1st, Blues Bar & Restaurant of the Avila Beach Hotel celebrated her 25th anniversary with a grand Live Jazz Concert at Avila’s Octagon Plaza. The revenue of this fundraising concert ended up being Nafl. 4,376.94 and has been donated to foundation Cultural Center Curaçao (CCC/Sentro Kultural Kòrsou) to encourage young local musical cultural talents.

The cheque was handed over during the weekly Live Jazz Night at Blues Bar & Restaurant. The two artists which took the lead during the Live Jazz Concert, Hershel Rosario and David ‘Ronchi’ Mathews, awarded this, together with Marloes Schoep (Blues Bar & Restaurant Manager) and Farley Hollander (Resident Manager Avila Beach Hotel), to Carolina Nicholaas and Steve Teunis of foundation Cultural Center Curaçao.

Additionally, there was a pre-show by students of Cultural Center Curaçao / Sentro Kultural Kòrsou during the celebration. Very special was the fact that the youngest musician was the 12-year-old nephew of late Uti Gregorio. Uti performed almost weekly at Blues Bar & Restaurant for years, until his death. After the pre-show, the musical heavyweights gave a spectacular performance, which pleased the audience. It is very special so many local (jazz) artists and musicians, as many as twenty-five big names, were altruistically on stage together for one night.
