7000Miles "Live Music Community"
In 2012, 7000Miles was founded with the mission to help bridge the gap between international musicians and the professional music scene in the United States. The primary functions of 7000Miles include Concert Production, promotion, and booking acclaimed live music venues. Ultimate goal is to create a live music community comprised of distinguished musicians from around the globe. ‘7000’ refers to the approximate number of miles between Seoul, Korea and New York City which symbolizes "international" and "cultural exchange" among peer musicians. ‘Miles’ is a tribute to the great jazz musician Miles Davis, one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, who had this superior sense of choosing the young talents who will lead the future of jazz and modern music.

While building intimate live shows in NYC, June joined Bergen Performing Arts Center in 2014 to focus on building cultural programs, especially concentration on Korean culture. In addition to his cultural programs, June had a vision to re-establish the strong household name of Englewood, NJ which town was known as the legendary Dizzy Gillespie’s place. As being a raving fan of intimate NYC jazz clubs himself, June noticed that a fine-looking baby grand piano that was sitting in the VIP reception room without being played to its full extent. With his love in jazz and the potential of the room gave him an idea to launch off the Live! At the Cabaret series, which series is made to present the music of talented musicians performing in various styles and genres.
