Woodstock 49th Anniversary Celebration Featuring Crazy Fingers
Woodstock 49th Anniversary Celebration Featuring Crazy Fingers
In August 1969, the Woodstock Music & Art Fair took place on a dairy farm in Bethel, NY. Over half a million people came to a 600-acre farm to hear 32 acts (leading and emerging performers of the time) play over the course of four days (August 15-18). Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, the Who, Janis Joplin and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were among the line-up. Woodstock is known as one of the greatest happenings of all time.

Join The Funky Biscuit and Crazy Fingers on this special evening to celebrate and commemorate perhaps the most pivotal moment in music history.

About Crazy Fingers
Crazy Fingers performed their first official show at a private party at Ultimate Farms in Delray Beach FL on Halloween, 10/31/90. A splendid time was had by all. The original lineup was Bubba Newton on bass,Pete Lavezzoli on drums, Mike Greene on rhythm guitar, and Al Zilinsky on lead guitar. In 1993, Corey Dwyer and Rich Friedman joined the band, with Corey on keyboards and guitar, and Rich on guitar. Both Rich and Corey also sang, joining Pete to give Crazy Fingers a three-part vocal sound.

Within a year of Rich and Corey's arrival, the band began touring the state of Florida, opening for national acts, and writing original music which has been recorded on two CDs to date. By the mid 90's, keyboardist Josh Foster began joining the band for special events and statewide shows, eventually relocating from Tampa to become a full member in 1998. Throughout these years the band went through a series of brief changes in the lineup and settled it's longest lineup of Bubba, Pete, Corey, Rich, and Josh. The band continued to build its fan base by playing weekly shows and expanding their repertoire.

From 2007 to 2011 Billy Gilmore joined the lineup while Rich took some time off. In 2013 the band lost Corey to a tragic car accident. It was a huge blow to the band yet even through tough times the band has managed to continue. In 2014 Bubba left and the band was forced to find replacements. Jarrett Aaronson joined the band on Bass and in 2015 the difficult search for a guitar player ended when Johnny Nichols joined the band.

The current lineup of Crazy Fingers is Rich Friedman - guitar & vocals, Josh Foster - Hammond B3 organ, keyboards & vocals, Pete Lavezzoli - drums & vocals, Bubba Newton - bass, and Johnny Nichols guitar & vocals, keeping the band alive and continuing to play on a weekly basis throughout Florida.

The band has played over 5000 live shows, allowing Crazy Fingers to sustain a devoted following and a nationwide reputation as one of the premiere Grateful Dead tribute bands.
