"DellaRatta is fast becoming the Bono of Jazz!" - Salt Lake City Weekly
- Salt Lake City's Guide To News, Arts & Entertainment Aug. 16, 2008
Rick Dellaratta is more than just a piano man, though he tickles the ivories with flair and grace. An equal opportunity good Samaritan, the New York pianist, composer and vocalist is recognized around the world for his altruistic work with Jazz For Peace—a band he formed in 2002 to raise funds and awareness for worthwhile nonprofits and charities. Five years later, DellaRatta is fast becoming the Bono of jazz (minus the U2 frontman’s ever-present shades), with more than 350 benefit concerts under his belt. Tonight, Jazz For Peace takes the stage in honor of Habitat for Humanity (Weber and Davis Counties). Proceeds will go towards the completion of the Doxey Housing projects. Peery’s Egyptian Theatre, 2415 Washington Blvd., Ogden, 6 p.m. All-ages. Info: 801-395-3227
