Jim Decrescenzo: A celebration of his Life & Work, with a concert of his music never before perfumed in public.
Please join us for a very special night celebrating the Life & Work of a dear old friend – Jimmy Decrescenzo, “Deke”, who passed away on September 5th of this year. Deke was a member of my first original band (which eventually went on to become “A. Animal”). A bassist & composer, we often joked how he had the real talent. At age 20 he was writing amazingly complex pieces. But he chose to give up music and sadly none of his compositions have ever been performed.
On Wednesday November 19th, Family and friends will gather at Harmony Music Woodstock NY to reminisce, swap stories and celebrate the man and his work. Deke was an excellent woodworker; some of his works will be on display as well as video of him in his shop, and I have assembled a stellar band to finally perform Jim’s music. The band includes bassist Brian Mooney, Drummer Jason Furman, and guitarist Chad McLoughlin, along with horn man Peter Buettner, guitarist Ted Orr & bassist Steve Rust. In addition, the wonderful Joey Eppard will perform solo and with his group. There is no cover. I hope you can join us. 🙂
