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!

 Saying hello to former ABC NY Meteorologist, Bill Evans, @WPLJReunion last night. He’s now @WLNG 92FM out in the Hamptons.  Dessert: Shaved Ice @PigandKhao on the lower east side with @thelaravee, Christopher Singh and Maria Singh. So full...  Last night @irvingplaza in NYC, I went to see Mike Peters and The Alarm with opening act Ryan Hamilton, who was fun to watch as a one man band. He had the audience in his corner. Mike and his band came out blazing. Everyone sang with Mike all night. Just a fab night all around. My son was born during the making of the Change album. So it was a great reunion. #TheAlarm #theryanhamilton
 @chaseedwardsgallery ... come by if you want something to do June 15th.  A quick catch up with Ashley Davie before he headed back to Birmingham. Have to make the trip longer next time and I’m glad he got to see The Met exhibit Play It Loud.  What a great surprise to run into Debora Francis while I was having a meeting with Hillary @duggalnyc to discuss my upcoming photo show in Bridgehampton.
