Tickets just went on sale! September 30 – October 4
This magical experience is for everyone who has missed live music concerts this summer, and who can’t wait to have some fun!
We are spending every day from now until September 30 working on creating a spectacular, unforgettable experience for you all.
Starting with a boat trip down the Hudson River at sunset, your evening of wonder and delight will include a tour of Bannerman Island with its lovely gardens, dancers performing on the Islands terraces, drinks and a light meal, a full Daisy Jopling Band concert, topped off with a stunning light show on Bannerman Castle by Deke Hazirjian, in my opinion one of the greatest lighting designers in the world. All under the full harvest moon.
These five concerts are all fundraisers for the Bannerman Castle Trust, created to conserve the island, and also for the Daisy Jopling Music Mentorship Foundation. Leading up to this event we will have over 90 students receiving the wonderful opportunity of mentorships and workshops in lighting design, moonlight photography, body percussion, beatboxing, dance choreography, art and perspective drawing.
Only 40 audience members are allowed per evening and NY State health guidelines will be adhered to every step of the way. This is a safe, intimate and exclusive event, and I am so excited to share it with you.
We will sell out soon, so if this is for you, please book now.
Thank you all so much, I am thrilled to see you soon!

We are deeply grateful to everyone who has been donating, you are making incredible transformations for our students possible, thank you.
I am over the moon happy to be playing with my stunning band again:
Piano – Jeff Miller
Keyboard – Matthew Watanabe
Bass – Lavondo Thomas
Drums – Simon Fishburn
And also thrilled to have rhythm specialist Michael Feigenbaum and trumpeter Sal Lagonia as featured artists joining us.
As all equipment needs to be brought by boat to the island, which has no electricity, I want to give a massive shout out thank you to my incredible team. Everyone is putting their heart and soul into this project, none of it could happen without you, I love you all so much.
Thanks to Jeff Miller for this fabulous photo!
Joe Brown Music Scholarship Fund
My beloved husband Joe is pulling strings from the next realm to make our incredible Bannerman Island project happen, as many of you know he transitioned into higher places on May 15, 2020. We have started a music scholarship fund in his name, if you wish to donate, here is the link:
Thank you infinitely to everyone who has donated so far. We will inform you in the next couple of months about the wonderful opportunities we will be able to offer students in Joe’s name, all made possible by you.
