We sadly lost the great Neal Casal at age 50 last month, and today several of his collaborators and peers announced a tribute concert for him happening at Port Chester, NY's Capitol Theatre on September 25 called There's A Reward: A Celebration of the Life & Music of Neal Casal. The lineup so far includes:

More guests are TBA. Tickets are on presale now (password = moonlight), and the public on-sale begins Friday (9/13) at noon. All net proceeds will go to MusiCares.

It was also revealed shortly before Neal died that he and his band Circles Around the Sun had been working on a new album, and Neal "left behind specific wishes for Circles Around The Sun to continue in his absence." His bandmates are honoring that, and planning to finish the album with producer Jim Scott and release it in early 2020. They also have a collaborative EP with Joe Russo, Circles Around The Sun Meets Joe Russo, coming October 18. CATS will be touring after the tribute concert; all dates are listed below.
