09/12/2013 - RoxFestNY, a benefit for The Greater Roxbury Learning Initiative Corporation held on Sunday, Aug. 25, at the Stone Tavern Farm, in Roxbury, was an outstanding success.
With perfect weather from beginning to end, almost 500 people turned out to hear Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Blues Maneuver, Coyote Love, and Hello Seattle and they were rewarded with over six hours of great music. By the end of the concert, the audience stood at the foot of the stage, screaming and singing along, while Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds and Blues Maneuver finished the last set with a blistering duo band number!
There was also a sold out VIP experience in The Banquet Barn for 80 people that was catered beautifully by The Rhinecliff Hotel.
GRLIC would like to thank our sponsors: Decker Advertising, The Watershed Post, Masserson Properties, ASHRAM Center, Spotted Dog Ventures, The Emerson Spa and Resort, The Belleayre Music Festival and Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties for their faith in this event. They helped make it real.
The $6,580 raised will help provide technology, engineering and science activities for our local students.
Thank you all who attended RoxFestNY this year. We'll see you next year.
