Hey there sweet family,
Congratulations to the Allman Brothers Band and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers for setting the all-time, whomping-huge, couldn’t-get-bigger-than-this attendance record at Tweeter Center on the Waterfront in Camden last Friday! Further congratulations to the ABB for continuing their a-may-zen run as the only artists to appear at Alltel Pavilion in Raleigh every year it’s been open! Whoo hoo!
Besides celebrating, we’re announcing a very special show – and very special pre-sale for you today:
Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ), a non-profit organization that provides year round sports training in 23 sports and 140 competitions free-of-charge to more than 14,000 New Jerseyians with intellectual disabilities, is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual Benefit Concert.
The concert, scheduled for Ocotber 25 at Richardson Auditorium’s Alexander Hall in Princeton, NJ, features both the Derek Trucks Band and Susan Tedeschi Band. This wonderful SONJ event is the first stop on the first tour Derek and Susan have ever hit the road together for.
Tickets go on sale to the gen pub August 29 via www.jamforsonj.org or at the Richardson Auditorium box office by calling 609-258-5000.

Shhhhhhhhhh, keep this a secret … and go for it!
Ok, since you’ve got your credit card out, Hittin’ the Note is also having a pre-sale – of the new CD by Devon Allman’s Honeytribe, “Torch”. Totally coolio is that when you pre-order the CD you guarantee your copy will be personally signed by Devon. Come on, order bunches, make his hand hurt! 😉 The link is:
Speaking of Hittin’ the Note, the magazine we love to love is about to celebrate its 50th issue. We can’t think of a better way to say “Happy Anniversary” than by renewing your current subscription or beginning a new one at:
