Richie Furay’s musical talents have left us an amazing legacy of quintessential country-rock music. For what it’s worth, Furay was founder of 60’s band Buffalo Springfield, spawning musical greats Poco and Crosby Stills and Nash. Hearing a new life-altering tune, Furay has been pastor of a Christian church outside of Denver since the ’80’s, but still tours as a solo performer. It’s no wonder he answered a call from Baristaville to perform a benefit concert to fund Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) research sponsored by Outpost In The Burbs. Outpost board member AlMercuro has a 6-year-old daughter, Rosie, living with SMA and is behind the initiative to fund treatment and cure research for the life-threatening condition — which is a few years and $20 million away.
“Rosie’s Concert to Benefit SMA Research” starring Richie Furay is tomorrow, September 6, 7:30pm, at the First Congregational Church’s Sanctuary, 40 South Fullerton Avenue in Montclair.
Come help support an important cause and help Richie celebrate the release of his new live double album, “Alive.” You’re going to love the show… A limited number of tax-deductible VIP Tickets (invitation to a Special Wine & Cheese Meet & Greet with Richie Furay and Pete Fornatale after the show) will be available for $150.
Regular admission is $40 in advance/$45 day of the show (if still available). If you can’t get to this special event you can still pledge a donation to SMA at https://www.fsma.org/rosiesconcert.
