“Keep Me In Your Heart: a Long Island musicians’ tribute to Warren Zevon”

“Keep Me In Your Heart: a Long Island
musicians’  tribute to Warren Zevon”
Saturday, April 5th,
8 P.M.
(a benefit for WUSB-FM at the University Cafe)
It has been just over a decade since the passing of rock
singer/songwriter Warren Zevon (1947- 2003) who was known for the dark and
rather bizarre sense of humor in the lyrics of many of his songs, as well as  ballads of great beauty and grace.  Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Jackson
Browne are among those who have cited the brilliance of Zevon’s work, and on
television, David Letterman featured Zevon on many of his programs including a
final visit in late 2002 in which Zevon was the guest for the entire program.

Among Zevon’s better known songs are: “Poor Poor Pitiful Me”
(a big hit for Linda Ronstadt), “Werewolves of London,” “Carmelita,” “Hasten
Down the Wind,” “Lawyers, Guns and Money,” and “Johnny Strikes Up The Band.”
To celebrate Zevon’s music, Paradiddle Records and The
Sunday Street Acoustic Series have brought together some of this area’s top
musicians. The house band for the evening includes guitarist and fiddle player,
Russ Seeger, bass player Dave March (of Miles To Dayton) drummer
Bill Herman and a special guest
keyboard player.  Bob “Hootch” Paolucci will also join in on harp.
Guest artists who will share their interpretations of
Zevon’s songs include Kerry Kearney, Cindy Lopez, Claudia Jacobs, and Pete Mancini (of Butchers Blind). And of course look for other surprise guests for this special
evening. Paradiddle Records will be recording the show for a possible release.
Both well-known as well as more obscure songs from the extensive Zevon
catalogue will be featured .
Proceeds from the show will benefit WUSB-FM .
Advance tickets are $15. For information on purchasing
advance sale tickets for this show, please email charles.backfish@stonybrook.edu
Tickets at the door on the day of the show are $20 (cash
only)
