the Rascals

The Rascals' original lineup--Felix Cavaliere, Gene Cornish, Eddie Brigati and Dino Danelli--will reunite for their first public performances in over 40 years with "Once Upon A Dream," a combination concert/theatrical event produced and directed by Steven Van Zandt and lighting/projection wizard Marc Brickman. It's a Rock N Soul dance party meets The Jersey Boys.

In addition to the concert experience, the history of The Rascals, and the history of the '60's through their music, will be dramaticized by a combination of narration, filmed scenes of actors acting out key moments in the band's history, news footage, and archival footage of the band.

There will elements of the staging and light design never seen before just as Marc Brickman has done in his previous groundbreaking work with Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Blue Man Group, the Olympics, and Roger Waters' recent 'The Wall' tour. [Kickstarter].

Steven Van Zandt spent this past weekend with Bruce Springsteen playing shows as part of the E Street Band at Metlife Stadium in NJ. We talked about the first night. How were the second two?

Without a doubt, one of the finest bands ever to come out of the tri state area. Saw them in the late 80's at MSG at the Atlantic Records 50th Anniversary show and they completely rocked the place. Felix and Dino are rock gods...
show the proper respect!

C'mon, tickets for Springsteen are only $250 per person. How is a starving musician supposed to live on that. And he has his own radio station on Sirius ("The Garage"). The guy is obvious struggling for money. There should be a kickstarter just to help him with the basic necessities of life. Poor Stevie

AND he was a regular on The Sopranos. Dude has his nerve.

Bruce tix are around $100 tops, which is probably what these dudes are going to charge. Stevie's going to end up funding it when the kickstarter falls short.

This is an effort to preserve REAL rock and roll. No matter who gives them money. I would go see them for a night out,rather than see some bullshit rapper or candy assed counrty pop crap. Thank you Steven....now crack open your piggy bank and kick it up!

Good thing for me I love the Ramones endlessly and I really enjoy the music of the Smiths, so I get out of this infantile anti-social behavior unscathed.
