Walk Day Entertainment




Sunday, September 30, 2007 @ 12pm in Battery Park, Lower Manhattan

NY based, rock band “MAZARIN” has been invited to perform as the featured act at the 2007 Manhattan Walk to Cure Diabetes.

“We’re thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to perform for an organization and it’s supporters that is so close to our hearts”– Doug Mazarin.

The concert event holds special meaning as bandleader, songwriter Doug Mazarin, has had Type I-Juvenile Diabetes for over twenty years.

The band has just finished a spring-summer tour that included a record-setting sell-out performance at NYC’s The Cutting Room.

“We’re planning a hi-energy MAZARIN Rock N Roll show for everyone to celebrate this wonderful, vital support group and the great work they do” – Marc Mazarin
