PHILADELPHIA - On the brink of closure, the venue – which celebrated its 31st anniversary in September, hopes a new GoFundMe campaign will keep the music playing at 1421 Sansom Street.
Chris' has launched the crowdfunding initiative to book and compensate musicians for future Livestream jazz shows. 100% of donations will go to the artists who perform on stage and the engineers who make the Livestream magic happen.
"This GoFundMe is our last-ditch effort to continue to offer jazz, but sadly we may now face the same fate of more than hundreds of restaurants in the city that have already been forced to close this year. Without additional support, our legendary club is in danger of closing forever, which would be a tremendous loss to the Philadelphia arts community." To donate to the campaign, please visit GoFundMe to Keep the Music Playing.
