Stella Blue’s Band benefit concert

The Paramount Hudson Valley Theater presents:
Stella Blue’s Band – A Concert to benefit Riverkeeper
Sponsored by: The Lanza Family Foundation and John and Rachel Cahill

Join us as our good friends from Stella Blue’s Band perform a live show featuring classic Grateful Dead tunes to benefit Riverkeeper. Proceeds from each ticket purchase for the concert will help Riverkeeper protect and preserve the Hudson River and its tributaries and safeguard drinking water supplies for millions of New Yorkers. Support some great(ful) live music for a great cause!

Stella Blue’s Band, a project born out of love for the music, and jamming for fun, has blossomed into one of the premier Grateful Dead tribute bands in the country. Stella Blue’s Band was founded in 2009 to recreate the experience of being at a Grateful Dead show by playing this music with a deep commitment to authenticity. Stella has opened for Santana at the Greenwich (CT) Town Party, played in the New York City Central Park Bandshell since 2018 in an annual benefit for Riverkeeper, and has shared the Capitol Theater stage with Melvin Seals—Jerry Garcia’s longtime keyboard player—and Mr. Phil Lesh, founding member of the Grateful Dead. In New York City, the band plays regularly at venues such as the Brooklyn Bowl and The Cutting Room, in addition to a large number of venues throughout the tri-state area. The band was given a headline spot at the 50th Woodstock Anniversary that took place on the grounds of the famed Yasgur’s Farm, site of the original festival.

SBB features dynamic jams with lots of improvisation, fulfilling the musical magic that the Dead achieved. They play tunes from all stages of the Grateful Dead’s 30-year run capturing the unique sound and adventurous spirit of the music. With love and reverence for the music, they create that special feeling and community unique to Grateful Dead Shows.

Stella Blue’s Band features Bill Bonacci (lead guitar, vocals), Steve Liesman (rhythm guitar, vocals), Greg Solomon (bass), Ken Aigen (keyboards), Ron Cohen (drums, vocals), and Amy Stahlin (vocals).
