W hosts ELEW for Rebuild Hoboken Gala this Saturday

ELEW, his moniker based on his original name Eric Lewis is a world class talent.  As a young man, he toured the globe under the direction of world famous trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis.  Previous to that staring gig he was the 1999 winner of the prestigious Thelonious Monk award.  As a child prodigy at the age of 16 he garnered accolades in the same competition as a semifinalist.

ELEW has played at the White House, appeared on TV and numerous events across the US and the globe as a solo artist and is bordering on star status blending rock and jazz as he applies his unique gifts in an appearance at the W Saturday night in support of the Rebuild Hoboken Fund.

There's some tickets available and this promises to be a very memorable event.  Stand up and be counted for a good cause, our Hoboken:

Talking Ed Note: This event is obviously unique in that it aids your friends and neighbors not just your town.  Join Da Horsey and let's toast the resilience, the resurgence, the love of our beloved Mile Square.

Then let's bask in the sights and sounds of ELEW.
