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.

“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.”

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.

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
