Bogmen Reunite for Benefit


The Bogmen are playing a one-off show at the Bowery Ballroom on Friday December 22nd. Tickets are $50 each, and are available here. Kinda pricey I think but it is for a good benefit, Kristy's Smile, so I guess it's worth the extra money. For anyone who hasn't seen them play a live show, it's definitely worth catching! They are a riot live!! Viva PJ!

Awesome. Having gone to the previous reunion show right after Sept 11, I cannot say enough good things about the Bogmen and the amazing work of Kristy's Smile/Secret Smiles.

A little more history...

Ties of blood, friendship and loss have bound together the artists of Kristy's Smile, a compilation CD that shows what can happen when grief is channeled into creativity. The album was conceived and produced by pianist/composer/producer Brendan Ryan, whose wife Kristy Irvine Ryan worked in the World Trade Center and died on September 11th. Kristy's Smile was assembled in a three-week burst of passionate energy for the reunion of The Bogmen, the popular and innovative NYC rock band whose two Arista Records releases and national tours featured Brendan's keyboard and writing talents.

The Bogmen reunited for a sold-out weekend at The Irving Plaza on December 14th and 15th (2001) to benefit Secret Smiles Inc., a charity serving families in need that was founded in 1999 by Kristy and her friend Meredith O'Neill Hassett. Thanks to the generosity of CdBaby, all proceeds from the sale of Kristy's Smile will also go to benefit Secret Smiles. For more information on the great work of Secret Smiles in helping families through economic hardship - especially families affected by September 11th -- see www.secretsmiles.org.
