I hope this email finds each and everyone of you doing well and I am sure you are like me wondering where the heck is Spring??!!! Well, if the weather folks are right (ahem), by the time you will be reading this, especially those of you in the Northeast, you will be enjoying Spring like temperatures for the first time and this time I think they will stay! :)
I have a two great events/shows/fundraisers to share with you in this email. The first one is on Saturday, April 18th for the Annual Dan Sullivan Foundation Fundraiser at my old high school, Albertus Magnus in Bardonia, NY (near New City/Nanuet). I will be joined by Stone Caravan (Sam LaMonica, Greg Lykins and Mr. Lou) and old friends (Tim O'Donohue, Kevin Cronin and Jan and Tommy Dunn) and we will be joined by Rhode Island's own John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band!
JC&BB are as wonderful as ever as JD&SC did a recent series of shows with them in Canada for Light of Day in November. Having the legendary "Eddie & The Cruisers" songs/soundtrack being sung in my old high school gymnasium is surreal to
say the least! I thought having Black 47 last year was surreal but I think this one tops it!! All information below and the ticket is inclusive of food, beer, wine, chance of winning money/raffle AND helping raise money for student scholarships and people in medical financial need. Not sure there is ANYTHING better going on than this that night!! Early event start of 7pm and the whole evening should be wrapped up around 11/11:30pm. Get your tickets below and
thanks as always for supporting! :-)
The following day, Sunday, April 19th, I will be joining three-time Grammy Award winner Tom Chapin and his band at the Earth Day celebration in Paramus, New Jersey. This will be the first time Tom and I are performing at this event though I have attended a few times in the past. Great organizations involved who are doing their part to make our corner of the world a little cleaner and "greener". Event starts at Noon with my solo set at 2pm and Tom and his band performing around 2:30pm. It's a rain or shine event and there will be food and drink available to purchase and ends up around 4pm. See you there...
LAST BUT NOT LEAST... Early Bird Tickets on sale for the Rockland-Bergen Music Festival on June 27 & 28th. Get them now before pricing goes up! A really great bill of talent (if I say so myself!), the likes of which Rockland-Bergen has never seen and I really need to start working on next year to top this one!!! :) MANY THANKS to everyone who have already gotten tickets as the response has been fantastic and lots more to report on this in coming emailers as sponsors and media are coming aboard this year in a fantastic way!
