Dubrovnik in NYC

Tajci will be hosting and giving a special performance at the Gala Fundraising Event on March 1, 2014 at the New York Athletic ClubDubrovnikGala(Voted #1 Athletic Club in the US, #1 Private Club in NY State, and Distinguished Emerald Club of the World, 2013.) celebrating St. Blaise, Patron Saint of City of Dubrovnik & 72nd Anniversary of Club Dubrovnik.

Tajci has more than a few connections with the “Pearl of Adriatic” as Lord Byron nicknamed Dubrovnik, an unique twelve century-old city on the Coast of Croatia. It was there that Tajci’s first official music video for “Hajde da ludujemo” hit song was filmed – to present both the country and the song. It was there that Tajci’s newest video “Keep Your Head Up” was filmed last summer (the release of which is reserved for this special celebration). Tajci’s youngest son, Blais – named after the patron saint of Dubrovnik, took his first steps on the centuries old cobble stones of Dubrovnik.

Hajde Da Ludujemo

Tajci’s first official music video was filmed in Dubrovnik in 1990

So, it’s doesn’t come as a surprise that Croatia’s beloved singer was chosen to host the Annual Gala Fundraiser Event taking place in one of the most distinguished private clubs in NYC.

“I am honored by the invitation and I’m looking forward to being a part of such great event”, says Tajci who will be performing with some of NYC’s top musicians.  Co-host and auctioneer Lou Young, CBS 2 journalist is an eight-time Emmy Award winner as well as recipient of many awards from the Associated Press, United Press International and New York Academy of Television Arts Awards.

Living jazz legend, Bob Mover will be making a special Guest performance and the guests and dignitaries from the political and business worlds, will be greeted by Dubrovnik’s very own mayor honorable Dr. Andro Vlahusic.

For 72 years, Club Dubrovnik – New York has been striving in gathering New Yorkers whose roots lie in Dubrovnik as well as people of goodwill from many diverse backgrounds.
