Help Seacoast Jazz Society by supporting the 23rd Annual Tommy Gallant Jazz Festival via our first-ever crowdfunding effort!

The Tommy Gallant Jazz Festival is returning to the Prescott Park stage on Sunday, August 5, 2018. For the past 23 years, this festival has featured many of the top regional jazz artists, and your support of this campaign will ensure we have a successful 2018 festival with many jazz greats from the local scene. This year, we have a national headliner: guitar legend Pat Metheny, who has been added to this festival as part of the Prescott Park Arts Festival's Riverhouse Concert Series - and Metheny and his band is already fully paid for by the Prescott Park Arts Festival.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to support the many local musicians who will also be a part of this year's festival
As you know, donations at the gate only pay for a portion of the festival. The Seacoast Jazz Society must also raise a significant amount of funding to ensure a wonderful festival for everyone. This year we have set a goal of raising $3,000 via this GoFundMe campaign. Please support your local jazz festival!

Even though GoFundMe doesn't have rewards, we do have a few rewards for you!

GIVE $20: You will receive a VIP sticker that will say you have ALREADY DONATED for the day of the Jazz Festival. Just wear that sticker on the day of the festival, and you will be waived through the gate without being asked for an additional donation the day of the event!

GIVE $40: Receive two of the above mentioned VIP stickers!

GIVE $60, $80, $100, $120...:  You get it. For every $20 you give, we'll give you a VIP sticker. So if there are ten people in your party, give $200, and we'll send ten stickers!

GOING FAST! FIRST FOUR PEOPLE TO GIVE $150:  This is a package and we only have two left to give out - each of the next two people to donate $150 gets the full package for you and three friends! At this level you will receive FOUR full-day special reserved chairs, set out for you by the park so you don't have to fight for a seating location! (REMAINING: 2)

SOLD OUT! XXX FIRST PERSON TO GIVE $250 XXX SOLD OUT!: This reward is sold out! Receive the ONLY full-day table for four! Tables for the evening Metheny set are already sold out. If you are the FIRST donor to give $250, you will get a table good for the WHOLE festival - from the start at noon until the end of Pat Metheny's set. (REMAINING: 0)

This year's line-up:

12:00  Dave Newsam Brazilian Project with Dave Newsam, Nihco Gallo, Eric Klaxton, Zachary King, Nate Jorgensen, Margaret Herlehy, and Carl Dimow

1:15  Patrice Williamson Quintet with Patrice Williamson, Mark Shilansky, Nick Grondin, Keala Kaumeheiwa, and Les Harris, Jr.

This is going to be an AMAZING day of jazz on the Piscataqua River waterfront in beautiful Prescott Park. Thank you for supporting Seacoast Jazz Society and the 23rd Annual Tommy Gallant Jazz Festival at Prescott Park.
