Patty Cakes Gildea Birthday Bash Sidewalk NYC 12-1-20-14
With Alan Merrill, The Anne Husick Trio, Ricky Byrd, Love Pirates, The Cynz and Snake Monster. A funny thing happened a week before this gig. Joan Jett And The Blackhearts were announced as 2015 inductees into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and their guitarist, Ricky Byrd as well as the author of The Blackhearts most famous song, I Love Rock And Roll, Alan Merrill, were both on the bill to perform for our friend Patty Cakes Gildea. So we ended up with a historical moment when Ricky joined Alan on stage for a heartwarming rendition of that tune. Gives me goosebumps thinking about it. Crazy Mary was joined by Rick Eckerle for our last few numbers who brought color to our set with his lap steal and Gretsch White Falcon. The night had many great highlights such as when Nick joined Snake Monster on stage to sing wearing the pink tutu he was supposed to have on when he popped out of a cake for Patty, on his head instead.
