Jeff Crespi has been a fixture of the local music scene for the last several years, providing Jersey Rock bands with beautifully shot images of their performances. Those images go a long way towards helping groups with limited funds get exposure. Needless to say, Jeff is one of the most important parts of the NJ music scene. Jeff recently had to be airlifted for emergency brain surgery. Following the procedure, he is unable to work or drive for at least six months. Jeff will face mounting medical bills and no income during that time. A Go Fund Me page has been established to aid him and his family. Please donate what you can and spread the word.
