The band get together in support of the Kristen Ann Carr Fund, which benefits victims of sarcoma. All the band was there, singer Eddie Brigati, guitarist Gene Cornish, keyboarist Felix Cavaliere, and drummer Dino Danelli.
Steven Van Zandt, guitarist in the E Street Band and Sopranos cast member requested the performance, Van Zandt said, “We first met around 1980 to discuss reuniting the band and have tried every five years or so.”
According to Cornish, this is one band who isn’t in it for the money. “I speak on behalf of the band when I say all the money offers in the world could not entice the Rascals to reunite,” he said, “but four phone calls from Stevie and without hesitation we enthusiastically and immediately agreed to both support this wonderful cause and honor Stevie and Maureen.”
There are hopes that The Rascals will be singing together beyond the Saturday’s benefit, but still theres nothing confirmed.
Van Zandt said in a statement. “Rehearsals have been incredible and of course my hope is they can stay together and finally show the world why they are one of rock & roll history’s greatest bands.”
