2019-07-16 - Remembering Leon Russell, City Winery, NYC

On Stage :

Featuring Rich Pagano as Musical Director with Marshall Crenshaw, Joseph Arthur, Scott Sharrard, Emily Duff, Laith Al-Saadi, Tash Neil, Ricky Byrd, Early Elton Trio, Brian Mitchell, Nicki Richards, Jeff Kazee, Jim Boggia, Fred Walcott, John Conte and The Asbury Jukes Horns.

A portion of proceeds will benefit to Recovery Release (sober house living for men) and New Hope Rising (sober house living for women).

Sober house living is the second stage or 'next step' of treatment after an intensive 30-40 day in-patient addiction program. The goal is to integrate recovering men and women back into their everyday life. Most families find the means to pay for initial in-patient treatment but the majority cannot afford or their insurance will not cover a sober house living level, subjecting their loved ones to old triggers long before coping skills are in place. Recovery Release for men in Westchester and New Hope Rising for woman on Long Island are two virtuous entities that are dedicated to the proven steps for maintaining sobriety in an era of a drug addiction epidemic.

Review By Jamie Kalikow

The Remembering Leon Russell benefit event at City Winery NYC – was packed with stellar players and great songs.

The huge cast of musicians and vocalists, led by Musical Director, Rich Pagano, included Marshall Crenshaw, Joseph Arthur, Scott Sharrard, Emily Duff, Laith Al-Saadi, Brian Mitchell, Ricky Byrd, Jeff Kazee, John Conte, Fred Walcott, Leslie Mendelson, Jim Boggia, Nicki Richards, Rich Pagano, Leslie Mendelson, Natalie Mishell and Southside Johnny Horns.

This was one of the few iconic Artist Tributes where the evenings guest artists didn’t feel they needed to chase the recordings. The night was filled with interpretations which is Rich Pagano’s preference when working with artists as a musical director.

A generous portion of proceeds to benefit “Release Recovery” – A Sober House for Men and & “New Hope Rising – A Sober House for Women.
This show was the first of what hopes to be an annual talent-packed benefit event.
