Little Kids Rock Benefit

Posted by  on 
October 23, 2015

The Little Kids Rock Benefit event took place the other night at The Hammerstein Ballroom. It was to raise money for children to continue their education in music in schools.

The kids got to perform with Steve Miller, Graham Nash, Darlene Love and Paul Shaffer. The music director was Will Lee. Hosted by Maureen Van Zandt. I was invited by my friend, Gary Lippman and his wife Vera. At our table were my friends Willie Nile and Simon Kirke (Bad Company, Free). There were lots of other friendly faces in the room too, like my friends Billy Amendola (Associate Editor of Modern Drummer ) and Jules Danza Follett (Sticks ‘n’ Skins author).

We were surprised by the kids who performed…they were absolutely fantastic and very knowledgeable about the music. You can see some of them in the video. The high point of the evening was the surprise guest presenter for Paul Shaffer, his old boss, David Letterman. He did a standup comedy routine, that I must say, I miss. He still has it. Just a great fun night of music!

 A small hang after his @buildseriesnyc interview talking about his new children's book HEAL THE EARTH.  Normally I have to color my roots within 3 weeks because if it’s fast growth. Having used #oVertonecolorconditioner, the Extreme Purple conditioner and deep treatment, I don’t need to color my hair so quickly. My roots are now in a lavender color. More people notice my hair is now purple courtesy of #manicpaniccolor, Purple Haze and to #oVertoneConditioners.   I’ve never found these in my grocery stores in NY. These were on the shelf in a store in Liverpool. Hmmm
 Yesterday it was my friend Deborah’s birthday. We had gone out to hear some good music at The Cutting Room the night before. Also there was my friend Eve Brandstein ... it was a girls night out in The Big Apple.  Mother/daughter time. Out to see the play #Hamilton with my friends. Amazing talent on that stage. Great time.  Always knew my daughter had flair...she loves her cosplay to this day!
 At Meow Parlour with Sebastian. We are hanging with Josie.  The chef, Christopher, made the dinner last night with the help from his sous chef, his girlfriend and my daughter, Lara. Delicious!  Maria (Nick’s mom and soon to be mom-in-law to Melanie), Lara, Melanie and me at Thanksgiving Dinner tonight. Nick cooked an amazing dinner. Ate too much!
