PEEKSKILL, N.Y. - Forty-five years ago this month, the first live album by an American rock band was released. The Allman Brothers Band double-disc record documented their momentous concert at the Fillmore East NYC in March 1971. Fans who were there remember and those who weren’t wished they had been after listening to the release celebrating that occasion. On Saturday, Oct. 15, that moment in music can be re-lived, as The Justin Veatch Fund brings Live at the Fillmore—a tribute to the original Allman Brothers band—to Paramount Hudson Valley in Peekskill.

Live at the Fillmore—seven star musicians from Philadelphia—play the music of the Allmans in one of the most distinctive tributes to the early years of the brothers. Twin guitars, two drummers, percussion and all the rest are the most true-to-form recreation of that musical moment in time. The band features Rick Baldassari (guitars/vocals), Dennis Barth (drums/percussion), Jeff Quattro (B3/piano/vocals), Barron Chandler (acoustic guitar/harmonica/vocals), Mike Mahomet (bass), Lou Maresca (guitar/vocals) and Don McCormick (drums/percussion).

The upcoming concert will also present an opportunity for The Justin Veatch Fund All Stars to strut their stuff at the historic Peekskill Theatre.

“We’re excited about returning to The Paramount,” said Jeffrey Veatch, president and founder of the fund, who recalled the success of the fund’s Best of the Eagles concert last October at The Paramount.

“Last year was a blast, but this year we’re going to raise the bar,” said fund vice president Thom Ianniccari, who also serves as concert production manager. “Show up and you will see what we mean.”

Companies or organizations interested in becoming concert sponsors will be recognized in publicity generated by Justin Veatch Fund media partners Pamal Broadcasting, The Examiner, Halston Media, More Sugar and others.

Jeffrey Veatch, Justin’s father, has presented his multi-media talk, “A Message from Justin”—which addresses the issue of substance abuse among young people—to more than 24,000 students. Justin’s story is also told in the documentary “Whispering Spirits,” which premiered in November 2014 at the Jacob Burns Film Center and is being screened by community anti-drug coalitions in 36 states.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...
