PRLog - Sep. 28, 2012 - DENVILLE, N.J. -- Justin Kauflin is making a name for himself in venues around his native Virginia Beach, VA, as well as up and down the east coast.  This year, Justin was named Jazz Artist of the Year by VEER Magazine and was a recipient of the VSA International Young Soloist Award. In 2013, Justin will appear in a documentary with his friend and mentor, Jazz legend, Clark Terry.

Justin was only 11 years old when he lost his sight to a rare eye disease.  However, his love of jazz drove him on. He began to perform professionally at age fifteen.  He graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Music/Jazz Performance from William Paterson College; and, at age 23, led, produced, composed and played on his debut CD, Introducing Justin Kauflin.    

The Justin Kauflin Trio will perform at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, NJ, on October 12 at 7:30 PM.  The concert, Just Jazz, will benefit NJ Foundation for the Blind’s work to enhance independence and quality of life for individuals who are blind or vision impaired.

Tickets are available online at $35 at www.njffb.org/just-jazz.  A limited number of tickets will be available at the door at $50. Wine and refreshments will be served at intermission and a demonstration by the NJFFB Drumming Troupe is planned.
