Pernice Brothers to play Carnegie Hall

The Pernice Brothers will play Carnegie Hall (yes, the one in New York) on Oct. 10, 2007 as part of an all-star tribute to the music of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. The show, which also features Joss Stone, Aimee Mann, Shawn Colvin, Phoebe Snow, Roger McGuinn, Lloyd Cole, Raul Malo, Brendan Benson and others, is a benefit for Music for Youth, which supports music education for underserved youth. Twenty artists in all will perform one song each. The show is produced by Michael Dorf.

I called Joe early last Sunday morning and asked, “What are you doing? Are you sitting down?” He replied, “I’m scrubbing the toilet. Seriously. Hold on. Just let me put the brush down.” I said, “Don’t bother, that’s perfect,” and told him the news.

Joe, Bob Pernice, Peyton Pinkerton, James Walbourne, Patrick Berkery, Jose Ayerve and Mike Deming will perform as well.
