Concert by the river helps Katrina victims
By Reeves Wolfson

Last Tuesday on a pleasantly warm September night, if you were feeling particularly light on your feet, you could have joined the salsa dancers at the eastern end of a New York City pier. But if you wanted to be entertained, enjoy some good rock ‘n roll and support Hurricane Katrina efforts, Pier 63 in Chelsea was the place to be.

That was where artists from across New York’s musical spectrum gathered to donate their time and talents to Good News Broadcast’s Blue Water Community Hurricane Relief Concert . While there are many worthwhile Katrina benefits taking place at large venues with name-brand artists, this event’s intimate setting provided some special moments.

Organized by Good News Broadcast’s (GNB) Paul Sladkas, the lineup featured acts from a capella R&B to acid rock. One of the best highlights of the evening was the performance of an exciting group called Blacksmith.

Blacksmith coins their music “country, rock, inspiration, blues” or “CRIB.” With that many genres to claim you’d think Blacksmith was spreading itself too thin; but they delivered. From Hendrix-inspired guitar blues to Sly Stone rock and soul, onward to Bob Dylan’ folk classic, Blacksmith showed the diversity and musicianship that is lacking in many of today’s artists. And they have a heart, too.

Blacksmith’s bandleader, Al Smith, along with members (Jimmy Sharp, Tom Griffin, George McNamara, Jason Spoor, and Miraj) not only contributed their time, but singer, songwriter Al Smith donated the use of his homelessness anthem “What About You?” to GNB’s fundraising efforts.
