TAPPAN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — After years of hitting the road, Joe D’Urso of the rock band Joe D’Urso & Stone Caravan decided to start a music festival in his own backyard.
“It came about last year,” D’Urso told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams. “It was my 50th birthday, and I grew up right on the border of Rockland-Bergen my whole life. And I just always thought that this area was kind of underserved when it came to music festivals.”READ MORE: Lionel Virgile, Accused Of Throwing Bleach And Molotov Cocktail At NYPD, Facing Federal Charges
