DANNY GLOVER

“This is my favorite night of the year.  It’s so meaningful, with the best musicians in the world coming out for an organization that helps so many, straight from the heart.”

BRUCE WILLIS

“It’s really easy to just say yes and come out and play music and raise money and help people. It’s a great foundation, with great people.”

KEITH RICHARDS

“Great room, and with all the other cats that are under this roof at the moment you probably have just about the creme de la creme. And all that jazz.”

CHAKA KHAN

“With the business being what it is today, and as it’s always been, any organization that is helping older and needy musicians is a beautiful thing. I’m really honored to be here for this.”
