For the past 19 years ‘Music From Ground Zero’ has performed in New York City on 9/11 to honor lost friends and fallen heroes.
MFGZ consists of locals Eric Parker (drums), Mark Dann (bass), Jeff Schecter (keys), Vito Petroccitto (guitar/ mando) and The Wallace Family Singers on backing vocals. The amazing Jonathon Fritz from NYC (Ritchie Havens, Lionel Ritchie) is on lead guitar, Jeremey Slanksy on acoustic and Tim Tuttle (singer, songwriter) up front.
The original songs were written in the aftermath of 9/11. MFGZ produced 2 CD’s that were shipped overseas to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and to HS music classes in an effort to bring them closer to Ground Zero. The music tells the the story of that tragic Tuesday morning from Tim’s personal experience nearly two decades ago and the healing that has taken so long.
For the 20th Anniversary MFGZ comes to Woodstock and the Bearsville Theater to celebre the endless healing power of music.
An evening of hope, love and rememberance with amazing musicians performing original and cover rock tunes.
Proceeds will be donted to ‘Music for Migrants’; a charity to procure instruments for migrant children.
