CUDDEBACKVILLE, NY — The Neversink Valley Museum of History and Innovation will hold a concert fundraiser starring Kenny Young and the Eggplants on Saturday, August 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the D & H Canal Park visitor’s center, 58 Hoag Road.
Kenny Young and the Eggplants are a not easily described semi-acoustic trio. The band members, who insist that they first met while training to be astronauts at an undisclosed location near the New Jersey Meadowlands, are Eddie Logue (percussion of various sorts), Gil Shuster (bass and role model for children) and Kenny Young (acoustic guitar and vocals).
The Village Voice wrote, “The naiveté Kenny wears on his sleeve is genuine—think of an East Village Brian Wilson, without the money but still tilted in his own wacked-out way.” The Eggplants say that the prevailing mood at their shows is “cheerful chaos.”
Admission costs $7 general admission, $5 for museum members.
