Hall of Fame members 94 East
We’re always honored to be asked to perform in any capacity and to share the stage with other musicians, and Saturday, May 1st was certainly no exception . . . Following the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2o1o benefit concert at Koka Booth amphitheater in Cary, Beggars’ Caravan rocked the patio at Rally Point and welcomed a stellar blend of Hall of Fame members, including (but not limited to) Dave Mason of Traffic and a monumental solo career; Alan White, formerly of Yes and currently with his White Sox band; Spike Edney of Queen; prog-rock bassist and White Sox co-founder Bernt Bodal; rock violinist Geoffrey Kastle; David Anderson of Atlanta Rhythm Section, and members of Prince’s band The Revolution and former band 94 East. We all laid it down and kept people dancing until the early hours of the morning, and it was a highlight for us, our friends, and our new fans.
Several folks have complimented that it was the best $10 ticket around, so thanks to everyone involved for making it a spectacular event. Special thanks to Rich French of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Drew Schenck and the Rally Point crew (including the lighting crew – great job!), our expert sound tech Stu, our incredible photographer Sledge, and the fantastic Hall of Fame members who humbly gave their time to entertain everyone and make new friends and fans.

Now, it’s back to the studio to get the 2nd half of this album underway, so we can have more fun times on stage!
Be good to each other, and we’ll see you soon . . . in the meantime, here’s a clip from the show:
