Pete's 90th birthday party!

Here are a few photos from our Pete Seeger 90th birthday party adventure. As a result of some recent work (as well as a lifetime of work), Jono had the opportunity to go to Madison Square Garden and perform with some GREAT musicians, all of whom were exceedingly warm and genuinely nice people. Some of the girlfriend perks are getting backstage and having a great seat! The show was fantastic. Truly moving at times! There are lots of videos on youtube....
The banjo is Pete's famous oldie which says; This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender. For me, holding the banjo which was just lying around in the dressing room was a highlight! The whole concert was a benefit for Clearwater, Pete's longtime cause attempting to save the Hudson River. It took me nearly the whole show to realize that the lights in the background were in the shape of a sail. Maybe because I was so busy focusing on those purple pants!
