A fundraiser is being held to raise money for a new stand up bass for Nelson musician Jesse Lee.

Fundraiser started for local musician

Funds will go towards purchasing a stand up bass for Jess Lee.

Residents are fundraising to purchase a stand-up bass for Nelson multi-instrumentalist Jesse Lee.

Lee is a member of award-winning spoken word performer Shane Koyczan’s band Short Story Long. He recently celebrated his birthday, and as a gift to the music community, his partner and son have initiated a campaign to purchase his new instrument, a double stand up bass.

“He’s one of those guys that plays everything,” said his partner, Cheralynne Kennedy.

Lee has a regular gig at the Hume Hotel’s Library Lounge on Monday evenings with his counterpart Rich Rabnett.

An Indiegogo campaign has been started. Other donations can be made to account number 354910 (sub-account: Jesse Lee turns 33) at the Nelson and District Credit Union.

They need to raise approximately $7500.
