LISTEN UP! & HAPPY HOUR W/ ETIENNE CHARLES AT 6PM

Series where JAS’ President / CEO, Jim Horowitz, leads an in-depth interview with Etienne Charles for 30 minutes.  Immediately following 12 lucky screens stay on to sip cocktails and spend quality time and maybe even dance with Etienne Charles and ask their own questions in a virtual meet and greet. Perhaps more than any other musician of his generation or Eastern Caribbean origin, Etienne brings a careful study of myriad rhythms from the French, Spanish, English and Dutch speaking Caribbean to the table. The last time JAS had him preform everyone broke out and dance…even a Congo line was a part of the festivities. Etienne is an extremely smart and interesting person and all that attend will learn a lot while having a good time. The Listen Up! Interview is about 30 minutes and the Happy Hour is about another 30 minutes, total 1 hour. Instructions on how to join will be sent to those attending. LIMITED TO 12 SCREENS ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS.
