When eight feet of water filled the basement classrooms at St. Rose High School in Belmar, Tim Hauser of the Manhattan Transfer was stunned at the devastation to his alma mater.

The Manhattan Transfer, Jon Hendricks, and the New York Voices will be Swingin’ and Singin’ for Sandy Relief at the Count Basie Theater to benefit the school’s fine arts and music program.

“Well, the music department itself sustained a loss of about $250,000 worth of instruments and asserts because everything was lost. So they have nothing,” says Hauser.

Hauser hopes the concert will raise up to $75,000 to pay for mold removal, plumbing repairs, and electrical work.
