Rebuild Hoboken Gala scores world renown entertainer ELEW

The Rebuild Hoboken Committee announces:

Many Treats on
the Line-up at Rebuild Hoboken Gala This Saturday
Pianist ELEW
To Perform; The Cake Boss To Deliver a Special Cake
January
29, 2013, Hoboken, NJ—Saturday’s Gala to Rebuild Hoboken is sure to be rockin’,
especially when ELEW takes the stage. 
The iconoclastic pianist, known for a “thunderous style of play,” will
be the featured performer during the fundraiser this Saturday, February 2, at
the W Hotel in Hoboken, NJ.  The event
begins at 7 PM with cocktails, followed by an evening of entertainment, live
and silent auctions and food prepared by local restaurants.  ELEW will perform two sets throughout the
evening. 
Elew
excites audiences with an inspired medley of ragtime, rock and pop that he
calls Rockjazz. His physical style of playing piano, standing rather than
sitting and sometimes plucking the piano strings like a guitar, has captivated
thousands of people at some of the biggest stadiums in the United States.  He has also played the White House.  In 2009, he
performed
in the East Room on a special presidential piano with legs carved in shape of
bald eagles at the White House Poetry Jam, with Barack Obama, Michelle Obama
and Joe Biden all in attendance.  Last
week,
he performed at the Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball at the
Harman Center for the Arts in Washington.   
The
Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund organization also announced that Buddy Valastro of
Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken and star of The
Cake Boss
will be baking and presenting a cake for the gala. 
Tickets
to the gala, presented by Haven Savings Bank, are available through the website:
