Tribute to NEIL YOUNG: Strasburg, Virginia - SATURDAY, MAY 30, 2009


A Tribute Concert to NEIL YOUNG this SATURDAY, MAY 30, 2009 in Strasburg, Virginia.

Come out and enjoy a fabulous tribute show with JEFF TAYLOR performing solo with his array of acoustic guitars, banjo and harmonicas from 8pm to 9pm of Neil Young's best-known songs like "Sugar Mountain" and "I am a Child".

After Jeff's solo performance, he and his PRAIRIE RUST BAND will knock your socks off performing all of Neil Young's famous songs like "Old Man", "Heart of Gold" and "Down By The River" from 9pm to 11pm.

The Strasburg Theater is a 550 seat theater with full bar, menu, and VIP seating. The Theater is a very old building - not only does it have the traditional theater style seating, but in the back is a bar and lounge area and seating in the balcony.

Hope to see all of you there!

Thanks Jeff! Have fun!

You guys have all the fun "UP THERE"!!
Hey guys down under, since we can't get the Real Neil Deal, is there any tribute bands or solo artist in the Sydney area doin' the rounds that are worth seein' i.e. Give Neil justice?!

Ya know, I'd love a CSNY tribute band to do a full concert based on the exact setlist and format as "4 WAY STREET" for song.. word for word..As long as they can emulate Neil's 3 song blend of The Loner/Cinnamon girl/Down by the river...I've worn out 2 vinyls and CD..just in that section!!!

I need some good vibes in my life at the moment..and this could be just the prescription!!

We're playing quite a lot up here in BC Canada...nest Friday as a matter of fact in my home town of Abbotsford, BC.
That's even more "Up there" but hey maybe there are some Neil Fans itching for some Live stuff after the Archives excitement!!?

Thank you all for the comments. The show was huge fun! And, we'd be happy to play in your town (especially if your town is Sydney :-) ) Feel free to contact me about it.

Thanks for the "4 Way Street" suggestion!
