Memorial Concert set for Nov. 23

F riends and family of Dan Lafayette are coming together later this month to host a memorial concert in his honor.

The concert, which will benefit Lafayette’s young children, will be held on Friday, Nov. 23, at the Whitehall Athletic Club.

The concert will feature performances by several local musicians, some of whom Lafayette performed with.

“Whitehall is a musical town and we natives all have a thread of it in our DNA. Each and every musician on this bill was influenced by Dan’s amazing skills in some way. He was a great drummer and an all-around awesome person,” wrote Alex Hyatt, who is organizing the concert and was one of Lafayette’s friends.

Some of the performers who have been invited to attend include: Second Switch, Kathi Brooks, Pete Telisky and Mark DeLuca, Flakjacket, Antecedent, ECHO, Tom Egan and Gus Breault, and Steve Martindale, Paul Round, and Jeromie Carpenter.

Organizers are asking for a donation of $10, which will include appetizers and finger foods. There will also be a silent auction and band merchandise for sale. All proceeds will benefit Lafayette’s children.

The concert is scheduled to being at 6 p.m., and doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

Those who are unable to attend but would like to contribute, can mail checks to: Lafayette, Community Bank, 118 Main Street, Whitehall, NY 12887, or donate online at indiegogo.com.
