Hello - My name is Spike Wilner. I am the owner and operator of Smalls Jazz Club and Mezzrow, two jazz venues in New York City. This is a fundraiser for jazz drum legend Victor Lewis. Mr. Lewis has been suffering from a neurological issue that has lost him the use of his legs. This, of course, has made it impossible for him to work and even to teach. It is our endeavor to ask the jazz community to help Victor with funds that will be used to pay his rent, medical costs, food and living costs and anything else that he may need. We are hoping to see a recovery but it may take as long as one year. Please consider making a donation. You can also find out more information about us at www.smallslive.com
Please note that Joanne Klein is Mr. Lewis' manager and listed as the beneficiary but to be clear, 100% of all the funds collected will go to Victor Lewis.
