Rockland-Bergen Music Festival

Special Concert Event - Sunday, April 14, 2024

Updated: April 12, 2024
Forecast looks clear with a chance of evening showers after we are all packed up and done!

The Dan Sullivan Foundation, in association with Rockland-Bergen Music Festival, presents a one-day concert to help two friends in need. Our brothers, Tim O'Donohue and Greg Lykins, are currently dealing with treatments due to cancer. Besides incoming medical costs, they both have loss of income while battling their respective fights.

The event will take place at the Gaelic Athletic Association in Orangeburg, NY from 11:30am to 7:30pm with bands/performers in two performance areas. Music starts at noon. The G.A.A. is located on the border of Rockland and Bergen counties and has a covered Pavilion. Ticket includes all food, beer, wine, soda, water plus donation!

The DSF/RBMF will be "run" more like our past Dan Sullivan Foundation events where an entry ticket will get you food, beer, wine, soda, water plus seven hours of non-stop live music! All the while helping friends in need.

There will be guitar raffles (two acoustic guitars donated by Alto Music and signed by all the performers), 50/50s and auction items: Yankees tickets, signed drum head by the legendary band The Smithereens, tickets to shows at The Turning Point, Mark Teixeira signed game jersey, and other items.

Our great friends at Posa-Posa Restaurant in Nanuet and Bailey's Smokehouse of Blauvelt will be cooking up some fantastic food for this day! Spirits/other alcoholic beverages will be available on a cash bar basis, but most beer and wine is included in your entry donation of $60 advance/$70 day of.

Tickets are being sold via Eventbrite and include all fees, so a $60 ticket is a $60 ticket. No add ons. Kids 16 and under are $25 each. All tickets are general admission. Please buy them prior to event day/Sunday so they know how much food to prepare/order! :) Day of admission will be $70 for adults and $30 for kids under 16.

There will be chairs, tables, couches and cocktail tables placed throughout the G.A.A. venue for a more casual experience.

If you can't make it there is an option to donate on a separate Eventbrite link. Just follow the link!
