SOMETHING: A CELEBRATION OF GEORGE HARRISON

SOMETHING A CELEBRATION OF GEORGE HARRISON
Sunday, March 6th at 12 Grapes Music and Wine Bar
12 North Division Street
Peekskill, New York 10566

5:30PM - 8:30PM   **Free Admission**

Although it's been 10 years since his passing, the music of George Harrison lives on...

Known as "the quiet Beatle", Harrison was only 15 when he joined the group and, although Lennon and McCartney were "the" songwriters, George wrote some of the most legendary Beatle's songs of all time: "Something", "Here Comes the Sun", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Blue Jay Way", "For You Blue", "I Me Mine", "Taxman" and "Within You Without You", to name a few. It was Harrison who first embraced Indian mysticism in the mid 60's, bringing to pop culture the sound of sitar music. His 1971 "Concert for Bangladesh" with Ravi Shankar was the first benefit concert of this magnitude in world history. With 11 solo albums to his name, George left behind an impressive legacy as a solo artist. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

The evening will be hosted by singer/songwriter Steve Chizmadia, and will feature Julie Corbalis, Chris Corbalis, Eric Puente, Paul Silverman, Seth Slater and other friends.
