In honor of Joey Morant, a talented Charlestonian jazz musician, the City of Charleston has commemorated October 8th as a day in his honor.
This informative and entertaining evening will highlight stories of Morant through the eyes of musicians, family and friends. With musical interludes, attendees will be able to experience the lasting legacy of a jazz legend with Charleston roots who was an integral part of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival and the MOJA Arts Festival.

Come join the Charleston Library Society on October 7th at 6pm.

About Joey Morant and his Legacy Foundation:
JOEY MORANT – ALL THAT JAZZ INC – 501(c)3 Legacy Foundation, focuses on helping musically gifted youth achieve creative and performing goals through scholarships and resources.
Throughout his career, Joey performed with industry greats such as Ray Charles, Les Paul, James Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, and Paul McCartney. His talents took him around the world, but his remarkably energetic, captivating and commanding entertaining style is what remains alive in Charleston to this day.
After his passing on July 29th, 2021, the JOEY MORANT – ALL THAT JAZZ INC was formed by his devoted son. The foundation carries two main missions. 1. To create and provide scholarships, mentoring and lessons, and various other resources to musically gifted 8th – 12th grade students in underserved communities in Charleston, and the Tri-County area to help them reach their musical goals and aspirations. 2. To support scientific research in finding the causes and cure for the horrific disease that Joey Morant had: progressive supranuclear palsy.
You will have an opportunity to donate, partner and sponsor efforts within the foundation at this concert, the day before his honorary day on October 8th.
