Eighteen-time Grammy winner Jimmy Sturr and his Orchestra will headline a concert to benefit the Hudson Valley Honor Flight, a nonprofit organization that honors American veterans by transporting them to visit memorials in Washington, D.C.
The concert will be held on Saturday, July 27, at the Goshen Historic Track, 44 Park Place, Goshen. Doors open at 4 p.m., and the show begins at 5 p.m.
It will feature several special guests, including Brass Transit, which will pay tribute to Chicago's multi-platinum songbook with such hits as “Saturday in the Park,” “Beginnings,” “Color My World,” and “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is."
The lineup also includes American Bombshells, who will perform a tribute to the Andrew Sisters; Chris Caffery from Trans-Siberian Orchestra; singer Doug Ferony; and M.C. Joe Daily. Also making an appearance will be the Hudson Valley Police Pipe and Drum Corps, The Orange County Sheriff’s Office Color Guard, and The Nam Knights of America.
“We are so grateful to Jimmy, Joe Dembeck, Sherriff Carl DuBois and the whole concert committee for their commitment to this annual fundraising event and our veterans,” said Chairman Frank Kimler. “Without the support of the community, Hudson Valley Honor Flight would not be able to serve our veterans. That’s why this concert means so much to us, plus it’s a really fun evening with some amazing musicians!”
Tickets cost $25 per person in advance. Make your check or money order payable to America The Beautiful Concert and send to P.O. Box 1, Florida, N.Y. 10921. Visit hvhonorflight.com for more information.
