A Celebration: Words and Music by Willy DeVille

I heard this news from one of the generous readers who commented on this post a few weeks ago. It sounds like a wonderful celebration of the man and his music.

Here is the invitation to all - thanks Sister Sue!

Come celebrate Willy DeVille's life and music!

Sat, 10/10/09 in NYC. 3pm - Tompkins Square Park. Avenue B side.

Share stories, emotions & Willy's amazing music.
Bring stories/music or simply be comforted by the company of other fans & friends.

Don't miss this chance to celebrate Willy's life & music with people who understand & care.

Very slight change to the October 10 event from Sister Sue -

Instead of Otto's we will go to:

Bar on A
170 Avenue A
NYC, 10009

It's much closer to the park. So gather at the park at 3pm, mingle and then head to the bar or just meet us at the bar around 5pm!

I am so sad that I didn't know about this until I read about it via a youtube comment on a Willy DeVille video the day after! I am a journalist who interviewed him March 1978 and maybe one other time on the phone and found him really interesting to talk too. I would have liked to have gone. Who were some of the folks who showed up? Any musicians? Thanks for responding!
