The Concert for Bangladesh Redux in Westbury

Westbury has not one but two great music venues: NYCB Theatre (formerly Westbury Music Fair), and The Space, a converted movie house on Post Avenue. Last week, to celebrate the birthday of late Beatle George Harrison a tribute concert was planned. Harrison’s renowned Concert for Bangladesh raised millions of dollars for refugees back in 1971 and was the first charity rock concert in history.

Godfrey, Joshua and EstherOne perk of being married to someone who wrote a bestselling biography of Harrison is going behind stage at events like this. My husband Joshua has been doing a tribute concert to George with Long Island based singer-guitarist Godfrey Townsend for more than a decade. The Bangladesh redux was fantastic. People were dancing in the aisles. And we got this great photo with Godfrey. Look for Godfrey at other Long Island venues. He’s the best.
