    Jon Batiste did not perform as advertised, and his absence wasn’t mentioned nor explained. I was really looking forward to seeing him perform. Other than that, it was a great show for a worthy cause!

      Unfortunately, Jon had a last-minute conflict and had to remain in New York. However, he did send a very sweet video apologizing for his absence and talking about how much Home for the Holidays and the Price family mean to him. We played it at the beginning of the main concert–around 8pm, as I recall. Sorry you missed it, but happy to know that you enjoyed the concert. We’ll try to get Jon back asap!
