The remaining members of the “Les Paul Trio” are putting on a benefit concert at Ramapo College in Paul’s honor this September.
According to the Mahwah Museum, Bucky Pizzarelli and Lou Pallo were good friends, and playing partners, of Paul’s. The group performed together at the Iridium in NYC almost until the end of Paul’s life.
Now Pizzarelli and Pallo are coming to the legendary guitar maker’s homeland to pay tribute to his life’s work.
The concert will be held at the Berrie Center of Ramapo College at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 24.
It will act as somewhat of a kickoff event for the Les Paul in Mahwah exhibit at the Mahwah Museum, which begins the next day. All proceeds raised from the concert will benefit the Museum.
Tickets range in price from $24 - $30, and there are no discounts available. Paul fans can order tickets by visiting the Sharp Theater website, or calling (201) 684 – 7844. “We expect this concert to sell out quickly,” the museum said in a release.
