GPSuffolk St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser, Fri 3/17/06

My apologies to Holley and some of the candidates for not getting pictures of them in action.  I was distracted by doing stage-managing, and did not remember until half way through.

Children were in attendance.  Vegetarian and Vegan dishes were served.  Music for the evening was be performed by Long Island singer-song writer Brian Sendrowitz,with a cameo appearance by Brooklyn green activist and radical, feminist, folk singer Holley Anderson.

Among Sendrowitz’s influences are Prince, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Van Morrison, and the Beat writers. When Sendrowitz released his first record, Morning is Broken in 1998, Newsday’s Kevin Amorim remarked, “You may just think you’re listening to a young, American version of Cat Stevens.”

Later albums include This Fleeting House, and When It Comes on Like a Dream, which was produced by frequent collaborator Philip A. Jiminez, and made the Top 30 albums of 2004 on the Cool as Folk show in Davis, CA.  Currently, Sendrowitz is recording the Beat Radio debut album in Huntington. Beat Radio is an indie rock outfit that played their first show in June of 2005.  (Got a copy of the Beat Radio EP.  It is lush.) Sendrowitz is an enrolled Green, who lives with his wife Elizabeth and their two young sons.  Photos of Sendrowitz performing

  1. From Kimberly:

    Here is the quick, morning after report:

    It is Saturday, March 18th.

    Last night was wonderful. Great music. Wonderful food. (One new green made 3, exotic vegan dishes; our GP Suffolk Chair made his famous crockpot mac and cheese and other good stuff; lots of other good vegetarian and vegan food.)

    There were (very brief) candidate speeches by: Jeff Peress; Steve Greenfield; Sander Hicks; Carl Person, Jim Brown, and me for Lt. Governor. A local progresive Dem the Greens endorsed once announced a peace vigil going on today.

    The auction was lots of fun. People love circulating each other’s “stuff.” And, there was some really good original art that made peopel very happy, too.

    There was actually about a 5 person clean-up crew. Pretty good! Learned that fireman are good at doing dishes!!!!!

    A good time was had by all.

    From,
    Kimberly
