Dorf's Carnegie Hall tribute concerts have become one of the must-see events of the NYC live music season. Previous sold-out concerts have honored the music of Paul Simon, Prince, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, R.E.M., Neil Young, The Who and The Rolling Stones. Last year's sold-out show included performances from Mike Gordon
(Phish), Heart, Josh Ritter, and Judy Collins. One of the highlights of 2012's tribute to Prince
was a rare NYC appearance by D'Angelo, backed by house band The Roots. Bruce Springsteen
have also performed for unannounced encores in their own tributes.
The annual fundraiser has remained focused on important education programs provided by organizations such as Young Audiences New York, Little
Kids Rock, Church Street School of Music, Mr. Holland's Opus and Grammy in the Schools.
