Send Lawyers, Guns and Especially Money: the Snow and Ice Have Hit the Tower

To commemorate the music of Warren Zevon and to raise much needed funds for WUSB (90.1 FM) radio in Stony Brook, Paradiddle Records and The Sunday Street Acoustic Series are staging a benefit concert on April 5th, 2014, at the University Café on the Stony Brook campus. The show will be hosted by Charlie Backfish, who can be heard every Sunday morning from 9 AM until 11:30 AM on WUSB’s Sunday Street. The house band for the evening includes guitarist and fiddle player Russ Seeger of The Last Hombres, bass player Dave March (of Miles To Dayton), drummer Bill Herman, Bob “Hootch” Paolucci on harmonica, and a special guest keyboard player. Guest artists who will share their interpretations of Zevon’s songs include Kerry Kearney, Mick Hargreaves, Cindy Lopez, Claudia Jacobs, and Pete Mancini (of Butchers Blind). Paradiddle Records will be recording the evening for a subsequent release. Proceeds from the show will benefit WUSB-FM to help defray costs associated with the recent repair of its broadcast tower, which was severely damaged during the recent winter storms. Tickets are $15 in advance online and $20 at the door. Further Information is available at
