BQP will be performing this Thursday at Crash Mansion in Manhattan at a benefit for underprivileged children in India organized by CRY America, a not-for-profit dedicated to Children's rights around the world (cry.org). Please come out and support this noble cause and to hear one of the best jazz/global synthesis bands I've ever seen live. 12 talented musicians-- one amazing sound.

Thanks so much for the post! My S.A. group will be in NYC this week and we'll definitely stop by. It's nice to hear something positive coming out of that region of the world these days!
