On June 29th, 2014, New Jersey/New York fixture Joe D'Urso will present the first-ever Rockland-Bergen Music Festival on the borders of Rockland and Bergen counties in Tappan, New York. 

"I've been thinking about doing this for some time as I felt the Rockland and Bergen counties were underserved when it came to something like this" says D'Urso."

"Also, with Pete Seeger's recent passing, it was the catalyst to get me to finally commit to organizing this particular festival which also coincides with my 50th birthday in late June." 

The day-long festival boasts more than 20 performances on two stages including legends of the New York and national music scene. Featured on the Glow Stage, hosted by Anything Anything's Rich Russo, will be Willie Nile, Marshall Crenshaw, Jesse Malin, James Maddock, Tom Chapin, John Eddie, Joe D'Urso & Stone Caravanand McMule. The Seeger Stage will host The Levins, Tim O'Donohue, Arlon Bennett, Chris Brown, Kevin Cronin, Bobby Mahoney, Joe Rapolla, Peter Elkas, Anthony D'Amato, Alice Leon, George Ramano, Rob Dye, Over The Line and Bobby DiBlasio.  

The festival schedule is now confirmed and is available HERE.  Recently added to the Rockland-Bergen Music Festival team is composer/lyricist/producer and Tappan, NY resident Neil Berg, who is best known for his work on the off-Broadway hit musical The Prince and the Pauper and co-creating Neil Berg's "100 Years of Broadway." 

Berg is now a partner with Joe D'Urso on the Festival and will be performing on piano during D'Urso and Stone Caravan's music set at festival. The festival will offer reasonably priced food and beverage vendors such as Jack Ford, Tequila Sal Y Limon, Denise Marie Catering, and Sixpoint Beer.

"At this point in my life, it's just part of my DNA. I hate to waste any gathering and not have someone learn about a cause or organization."
