On Sunday June 16th, Nancy And David Fine Jewels in downtown Millburn will present a benefit concert event with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee  Richie Furay reunited with prior band mate Paul Cotton in an exclusive appearance together at the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC).

Richie Furay is a founding member of the legendary band, Buffalo Springfield, considered by many to be one of the most influential groups in the history of rock music, which he founded along with Stephen Stills & Neil Young.  According to the Hall Of Fame, “It would be hard to imagine the careers of the Eagles, Jackson Browne and others without Buffalo Springfield as a precursor.”

After Buffalo Springfield disbanded, Richie co-founded POCO along with renowned musician Jim Messina. Some music critics consider Richie’s song “Pickin’ Up The Pieces” on POCO’s debut album the world’s first country-rock song. It was the sound that, in turn, influenced today’s country music.

Paul Cotton is also an alumnus of POCO after being in the band for 40 years and will perform an opening set and will also perform together with Furay.  Cotton was responsible for many of the most recognizable POCO songs including “In the Heart of the Night.”

Rock and roll historian, Pete Fornatale, died suddenly in Aprill 2011. He was a huge supporter of Poco and referred to their music as “Foot stomping, toe tapping, hand clapping, feel-good happy music that puts a smile on your face!”.

David Stone, co-owner of Nancy And David Fine Jewels is longtime friends with Richie Furay, as was Pete Fornatale, who was friends with both of them. Stone is on the Board of Trustees at SOPAC.  When the opportunity came up to host Furay in concert for the third time, Stone coordinated the exclusive appearance of Cotton to join Furay for this performance only and decided to make it a tribute to Pete Fornatale who encouraged Stone to continue coordinating and presenting fundraising concerts that Fornatale co-hosted with Stone.  The beginning of the evening will feature a video honoring the life & career of Pete Fornatale.

In addition to tickets, there is limited availability to purchase dinner with the performers, attend a pre-show dessert reception, and a post-show meet & greet.

The proceeds from the concert will benefit SOPAC and local charitable non-profit groups. This event is sponsored by D’Angelico Guitars, Investors Bank, WFUV-FM, and Nancy And David Fine Jewels.

 

Please join your friends and neighbors for an unforgettable night of magical musical entertainment and a great time.

Clearly, we found the Library and local educational opportunities to our liking.
