A Jazz & Blues Benefit for Gladstone Trott

VFW Post 1333

701 Lake Avenue
Asbury Park, NJ 07712

On Friday March 24, the Asbury Park Music Foundation will be celebrating the musical career of Gladstone Trott in a fundraising event to help his family cover medical expenses. Raised in Asbury Park, Gladstone has been playing music since he was six years old. This tribute show features over 20 jazz and blues musicians who know and respect the contributions of Mr. Trott. The response to participate in the show has been incredible and has required event director Dorian Parreott to split the musicians into three separate sessions with rotating members. "Musicians and friends are traveling in from all over the country to be part of this special event," said Parreott. Musicians include Gladstone's former band mates, teachers, students and friends. Clifford Johnson, age 91, played with Gladstone over the years in church. Gladstone's long-time drummer, Bobby Boyd and the well-respected sax player Tommy LaBella are scheduled to participate. Another expected musician, Sandy Sasso, had toured with Gladstone across the US and internationally. The event will feature one of his former music teachers, Karl Crudup and a former student, Desi Norman. Many other musicians will also celebrate their appreciate of Gladstone as well. The show originally scheduled for the new Asbury Park Music Foundation space on Lake Avenue, is being moved to the VFW at 701 Lake Avenue to accommodate a larger audience. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Trott family. Checks can be made to the Asbury Park Music Foundation and mailed to APMF, 375 Park Avenue, Freehold, NJ 07728.
