What a bunch of guys! Over the years, John had some great players in his band. Some of them went on to play with other people but a hard-core crew played with John whenever they could.
After John’s passing a loose group consisting of Dave Batti, Dave Crossland, Bob Hawkins, John Hoke,Dennis Kenmore and Chuck McDermott joined up with Buffy Stewart and special guests Roseanne Cash, Jim Dawson, Pete and Maura Kennedy and John and Buffy’s niece Noelle Boucher to do a special Tribute Concert at the Towne Crier in Pawling, NY. The concert was video taped by the Hudson Valley Music Channel and released as a 70 minute long dvd.
The John Stewart Band plays John’s songs in the style that John liked best. They keep alive his vision of The World’s Loudest Folk Band! Since the guys are scattered across the US they don’t get a chance to play together very often. This year they are joining us in Scottsdale, Az. at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort on August 12th. It’s going to be a great show. Details can be found here:

Hope to see all of you in Scottsdale!
