Marshall Crenshaw at Lagond \”House Concert\” Series

Next Round of All-Star Talent Comes to The Haven

Elmsford, NYOctober 16, 2018 — They’ve been called “living room concerts,” the private performances that allow a small group to book celebrity musicians for in-home concerts. Rosanne Lana, who with her husband and business partner-saxophonist extraordinaire and teacher Charlie Lagond run the Lagond Music School in Elmsford, NY, calls her upcoming series of intimate shows, The Lagond House Concert Series.

“It’s the same idea as a living room concert,” she said. “Only our shows are both intimate and affordable. The series, held at Lagond’s modest “Haven” theater starting on September 27th, will give only 50 – 75 guests the opportunity to hear from artists who have historically graced much larger performance spaces. How can they put on these small but affordable shows? “They’re benefits for our non-profit after school music program, and the artists are contributing as well as the audiences.”

Veteran tour/production manager, touring consultant and owner of Westside World Management Rich Nesin, curated the series. Nesin has worked with Herb Alpert, Kiss, Dion DiMucci, The Tedeschi Trucks Band, Steel Pulse, Blue Oyster Cult, Steely Dan, The Neville Brothers and Dave Koz, just to name a few.
