KEYED UP! is a young nonprofit with a simple aim: to bring more live jazz shows to New York City. By subsidizing half of music costs at their partner venues, they're able to create shows where before there were none. Suddenly, nightlife spots are busy on off days, talented musicians can pay the rent, and audiences all over the city can experience amazing jazz concerts for absolutely free.
According to Rob Duguay, musician and President of KEYED UP!, "It's a real, true partnership, and we believe that this will really help the scene perpetuate."
Here, Rob and his band the Low Key Trio play their regular Wednesday night spot at Turnmill Bar in Gramercy.
