Board of Directors

Marc Roth

Marc Roth is owner of "Roth's" on Manhattan's Upper West Side. His involvement with JFA began almost seven years ago. He has catered and donated food for the Jazz Loft Party for the last six years and has catered and donated food for the green room and after-party for JFA's "A Great Night in Harlem" at the Apollo for the last four years. Marc sponsored the first live webcast from the Apollo last year to help increase donations during the event. He has traveled to NOLA and Chicago to help struggling musicians get back on their feet by bringing them food, finding them a place to stay, or supplying them with some money to take care of basic needs. He has also given these musicians a place to play and eat in his restaurant, while trying to give them hope. Marc has donated and catered JFA memorials, birthday parties and any other event that needed support. Marc says that in the past seven years, he has learned how under-appreciated and underexposed these musicians are, and he will not stop until they get what they deserve.
