Famed jazz drummer, Charli Persip, known for his band SuperSound, has played with jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Eckstine. Unfortunately, in recent years, Charli Persip has been struggling with illness. Due to this, he had to stop doing what he loves the most; performing and teaching. This has left him to fall on hard times financially due to medical bills.
We are reaching out to the jazz community at this time for any contributions towards Charli Persip medical fund. He would greatly appreciate the support. You can e-mail his family at email@example.com
