The Overtown Music Project believes that music is transformational and can act as an engine of change to revitalize impoverished communities and bring people from all walks of life together. Our mission is a movement. On October 1, 2011 we will be one step closer to bringing the music back permanently to Overtown and funding its jazz and blues residency in the historic Lyric Theater. With the generous support of the Fontainebleau Hotel, we will have an 18 piece big band helmed by one of Count Basie’s disciples, a mash up with hip hop and streaming images of Overtown in its heyday. We would love your support, so please join us and spread the word! Please contact amy@overtownmusicproject for tickets, press and corporate sponsorship inquiries.
