night, @ 7 pm, July 20th, The Homegrown String Band™ will be performing as part
of West Milford, New Jersey's summer concert series, "Monday Nights Under
the Tent," sponsored by the West Milford Township Library. Bring a lawn
chair or blanket. In case of rain we will move to Town Hall.
"Recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer, our
father has created a "bucket list" of things he would love to do with
the time he has left. My siblings and I are working to try to fulfill as
many of these as we can. One wish our father had was to play with a
family band from Long Island whom he has admired for years. With the
gracious help of the band themselves, we have a date for this concert to
happen. Depending on how his health is at this time, Paul will be
playing AT LEAST a song or more with the band! We feel so lucky to have
the kindness of others to help Dad make these wishes come true. We
sincerely hope you can join us to celebrate his life and his passion for
music!" - Emmie Maass
There will be a $15 cover charge, and if we book a full
house, some of the proceeds will go to helping to fund additional items
on Paul's list! Tickets are now available for preorder tickets online!
The Homegrown String Band™ is proud to announce the release of a "new" live CD, "Field Recordings: Volume I." The album was recorded at four separate performances in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, between 2004 and 2010. It includes thirteen music tracks as well as a snippet from a radio interview. The CD is currently available (for $10) at HGSB gigs, by mail (free shipping) from us (PO Box 1251 Rocky Point, NY 11778) and on CD Baby. It will also be on Apple Music and Amazon.com in the near future. We will be celebrating the release of our new CD (as well as the life of Paul Maass) at our upcoming show at The Towne Crier in Beacon, NY, on Thursday July 9, 2015.
