December 30, 2015 by

With a goal of topping last year’s record-breaking half million dollars raised in its’ ongoing battle against Parkinson’s Disease, the Light of Day Foundation’s Winterfest expands to New York City on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at The Cutting Room in Manhattan.

The lineup for this concert includes Willie Nile, Dramarama ,The Weeklings , Joe D’Urso and Stone Caravan and The Gary Douglas Band.

Willie Nile is one of the few artists to have participated in a number of Light of Day events every year since the first one back in November of 2000. A portion of proceeds from his upcoming album, due in early 2016, will be donated to the Light of Day Foundation.  Brooklyn Roads, a longtime supporter of the Light of Day Foundation, was thrilled that Willie and his bass player, Johnny Pisano, were the subjects of our first video and interview feature when we launched the new site design in the fall of 2015.
