On Thursday night The Beacon Theatre in New York City hosted the second annual Love Rocks NYC!, an all-star benefit concert that raised more than $2 million for God’s Love We Deliver. Fashion designer John Varvatos and NYC real estate broker Greg Williamson presented the sold-out show to raise funds for the New York-based not-for-profit that provides life-sustaining meals and nutritional counseling for people living with severe illnesses.
Over 25 musicians from the rock, soul and blues worlds joined a house band directed by bassist Will Lee that also included Paul Shaffer, Steve Gadd, Shawn Pelton, Eric Krasno, Larry Campbell and Jeff Young. The “We Deliver Singers” and “God’s Love Horns” also contributed to some of the performances. Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, Steely Dan keyboardist Donald Fagen, Heart vocalist Ann Wilson, legendary singer Mavis Staples, Gov’t Mule frontman Warren Haynes, Dumpstaphunk keyboardist Ivan Neville, NOLA trombonist Trombone Shorty, pianist Marc Cohn and influential musician Emmylou Harris were just some of the artists who performed at Love Rocks NYC! last night.
