Please join us for a very special evening of Irish music at PD O'Hurley's at Pier 84, to benefit the Widows and Children's Fund of the Fallen NYPD . The Streets of New York Benefit Concert features 1970s-era Dublin rock band Bagatelle, led by Liam Reilly, who wrote the iconic Irish ballad "Streets of New York", made famous by the Wolfe Tones and the official song of the NYPD's Emerald Society. Bagatelle had hits such as "Summer in Dublin", "Second Violin", "Love is the Reason" and "Leeson Street Lady" and was one of the early influences on U2.
Also performing are Kilkenny-born singer-songwriter Enda Keegan along with New York's own Joe Hurley and the Gents.
We'll plan to meet up at PD O'Hurley's at 6:30, in time for Enda Keegan's performance. Joe Hurley & the Gents go on at 8 and Bagatelle at 9:30.
Tickets are $30 in advance at PD O'Hurley's locations, $35 at the door. Thanks to our friends at the MurphGuide, we will be able to buy tickets for $25, an exclusive discount for this group. I'll have more information about how to go about buying those as it becomes available. Please come out and support this one, it's for a wonderful cause.
