Poor Yorick Promotions will be hosting a 2-day music festival in Hamden, CT on Friday October 11th and Saturday October 12th. The festival will kick-off with 3 bands Friday night with local CT band Relative Souls opening for Big Something(NC) and Vibes Alum Jimkata (NY).
Saturday's festivities will include 20 artists across 3 stages at The Space, The Outer Space and The new Spaceland Ballroom. All are located at 295 Treadwell Street. Steve Rodgers, Mighty Purple founder and owner of The Spaces will be opening the show. Artists range from a solo DJ to a 14 piece funk band from The University of Hartford.
I began putting on concerts for my birthday 5 years ago. Last year, after losing a friend to suicide, the event became a fundraiser for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Last year I was able to raise over $1200 for the charity. 2013 is a whole new year though. I have been busy bringing national and regional talent to the New Haven area and pairing them with local artists looking to extend their fan base. For this festival 25% of all profits will be donated to AFFSP.
The majority of the bands are CT based with a few from New York and Boston.
