Sheba Jazz Lounge Covid-19 Rescue Fund

Dear Sheba Family,

We have been thinking of each and every one of you since the day we were forced to close our doors and we hope you and your family are healthy and safe. 

We’re reaching out to you because we know that as a part of our Sheba Family you would want to know what’s been going in the last few months. The good news is that we’re planning to open towards the end of June or the beginning of July 2020. 

Right now one of our biggest hurdles is to figure out how to be able to keep our entertainment and music program. As you know, for the last 14 years we have prided ourselves on not charging our patrons to come and enjoy the music that we provide. 

However, with the new economic climate, it is going to be difficult for us to continue to offer live music. At this point, we need the support of each and every one of you to help us keep with our original intention to bring music back to the Historic Fillmore Jazz Preservation District. 

Our musicians are an integral part of the Sheba family. They are the pulse of Fillmore and we want to make sure that not only do we get to enjoy their music but that they get to stay employed. 

Our intention is to keep with our tradition of not having a cover-charge. So this is where you come in… Based on our economic hardship, and our annual approx budget of $60,000 for music,  we’ve concluded that by raising approximately $75,000 we will be able to re-emerge from the rubble that Covid-19 has left us in, create our new norm and keep the music going at Sheba, also sponsor outside music on Fillmore.

Without you, we would never have lasted 14 years. Now, we are asking for your support to keep the music going.  Please donate now and share this campaign via text, email, and social media with any and everyone.

Thank you for your loyalty, support, and love for good music and good times. We hope to see you real soon!
