We were saddened to hear about Glenn Crane’s passing on Friday, February 19, 2021
Glenn was well known for his love of music. His accomplishments included playing numerous musical instruments, writing musical compositions, years as a bandleader and talented singer. Read more about Glenn here.
At Glenn’s request, no services will be held. In lieu of flowers or other expressions of sympathy, the family prefers donations to the South Jersey Jazz Society to support local musicians. P.O. Box 329, Somers Point, NJ 08244 or online at https://southjerseyjazz.org/make-a-donation.

Due to the new covid restrictions we are forced to cancel our festival for this year. We anticipate being able to have Randy headline next year’s event as well as all the other artists that were scheduled to appear this year. 


To all our friends, stay healthy!!!!

Our Mission
