ABOUT THE BENEFIT CONCERT
If you could put together a band of twelve musicians, each of whom has serious rock ‘n roll credentials, what music would you have them play? For Jonathan “Rock Doc” Schneider, a physician at Yale-New Haven Hospital, bass player and music supporter extraordinaire, it’s the music of Jackson Browne — and what became known in the 1960s — as the “Laurel Canyon sound.”
Turning the September 10 event into a benefit concert was obvious to Schneider, who recalled: “I was at a “No Nukes” concert in 1979, organized by Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, and John Hall. I became very inspired by Jackson Browne using his talents to raise awareness and funds for great causes. So I thought we, on a smaller scale, could do something similar that Jackson might approve of. And we do a few Bonnie Raitt covers as well.”
The All-Star triple bill for “End of Summer Music Bash: A Benefit Concert for Musicians Lifeline” features the 12 member band “Running On Empty: A Tribute to the Music of Jackson Browne & the Laurel Canyon Sound,” plus stellar performances by Nashville hit songwriters Middleman-Burr and NYC’s Jonny Rosch & Friends.
Special Guest MC for the show is Kristine Stone from SiriusXM.
