Original member of Buffalo Springfield & POCO returns to area for 2 shows

On Saturday May14th & Sunday May 15th  ,  Richie Furay returns to New Jersey for 2 shows billed as The Musical History Of Richie Furay.  Included for both nights is very special guest Jonathan Edwards which takes place at The Maurice Levin Theater at the JCC in West Orange.

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.  Their signature song, “For What It’s Worth (Stop Children What’s That Sound)” has been included into the upcoming May concert set list as requested by show producer David Stone of Nancy And David Fine Jewels in downtown Millburn, this events presenter. Each of the two upcoming shows features a unique & different show each night.

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 including the early sound of the Eagles. Randy Meisner & Timothy B. Schmit, both Poco alumni, were each recruited to be part of the Eagles.

Before embarking on his solo career, Furay was a member of the short lived American supergroup The Souther-Hillman-Furay Band.  JD Souther wrote many songs for Linda Ronstadt the Eagles.  Chris Hillman was a veteran player from The Byrds. The three musicians were brought together by music & film mogul David Geffen, but lasted less than two years before they split, each pursuing their own solo work. 

Furay is known for creating a combination of soaring lead vocals, sweet harmonies, and hard driving instrumentals.  He is considered to have the defining voice of country-rock, a genre he helped start in the late 1960’s.  

Nancy and David Stone are longtime friends with Richie Furay who resides in Colorado. It has become an annual concert event since 2009 along with some other occasional performers.  Stone is on the Board of Trustees at SOPAC.  When the opportunity came up to host Furay again, this time for 2 consecutive shows, David Stone agreed and coordinated Jonathan Edwards as special opening guest performer.   Stone has arranged at prior shows both scheduled and surprise appearances by several past Poco members, Mark Volman of The Turtles, and Rock historian Pete Fornatale since producing benefit fundraising concerts as a hobby since 2009.   Stone is in the process of coordinating another unanticipated surprise for the forthcoming shows.

Jonathan Edwards has a highly respected repertoire that includes such classics as “Honky

Tonk Stardust Cowboy,” “Don’t Cry Blue,” “Everybody Knows Her,” “Athens County,” and everyone’s favorite ode to putting a good buzz on, “Shanty.”

And then, of course, there’s the top hit and Jonathan’s anthem “Sunshine (Go Away Today),” which resonates with thousands of people for more than 40 years. At each show, the song continues to be embraced by faithful followers since 1971and new fans alike.

The proceeds from several past concerts have benefited area organizations such as Outpost In The Burbs, SOPAC,  Ed Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills, Interfaith Hospitality Network, The Valerie Fund, M-SH Chamber of Commerce, North Jersey Pride, and other non-profit groups. This event is supported with sponsorship Investors Bank, and Nancy And David Fine Jewels. Please join your friends and neighbors for an unforgettable night of magical musical entertainment and a great time as you experience The Musical History Of Richie Furay.
