The Guitar Parlor: Hudson Valley Music For A Cause

Jeff and I are preparing for our fifth semi-annual Guitar Parlor cocktail party fundraiser this Thursday night at Vivian Lanzarone’s gorgeous studio, Space, in Highland.

So what is the Guitar Parlor?

We throw a party, invite all our friends, ask the coolest local musicians to perform, and collect money for a Hudson Valley charity.

This year we’re raising money for the music therapy program at Hospice of Dutchess and Ulster County.  In case you’re not familiar with Hospice, they provide medical care and treatment for terminally ill patients.  It hits close to home for me after watching my grandmother languish and die in a cold, ugly hospital room…instead of in her home surrounded by her family and friends.

Why Are We Doing This? We love any excuse to throw a party.  And live music ROCKS!  We get to support Hudson Valley music and charities at the same time.

How Does It Work? You show up as a guest, have fun listening to music and hanging with some of the coolest people around, and donate a little or a lot to a local charity.

Are You Interested? Send me an email for more details.

Not Able To Attend? You can still donate to Hospice in the Guitar Parlor’s name.

Our talented Hudson Valley musician performers are:

Jeff Padovani

Stephen Johnson & Friends

Here’s a picture from one of our past Guitar Parlors held in our living room.  Jeff is performing with his son, Luke.  Let me tell you, there’s nothing like the feeling of having live music in your living room and partying with your closest friends!
