Glow-Seeger Stage

Joe D'Urso & Stone Caravan, an Americana/Jersey Shore/Rock & Roll band, released their 14th CD on SCR/Schoolhouse Records, titled "Jersey Diner," in January 2018. The CD was recorded in Nyack, Rockland County, NY at OK Records and will feature D'Urso originals as well as songs written by Rock and Roll's greatest songwriters (Springsteen, Waits, Chapin). Longtime Stone Caravan members Sam LaMonica (drums) and Greg Lykins (guitar) were joined by new members Jerry Scringe (bass) and Seth Saltzman (keyboard).

The CD runs from straight-up Americana rock and roll, singer-songwriter offerings, Jersey Shore and Greenwich Villages influences, as well as Catskill Mountain country tinged instrumentation. Joe has performed in 25 countries with his band Stone Caravan as well as a solo artist.

D'Urso remains true to an ideal inspired by the late Harry Chapin: that it is essential to help the less fortunate. He currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Light of Day Foundation, which raises funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease. Joe is a founding member of Pinkfest, whose sole purpose is to battle Breast Cancer, sits on the board of WhyHunger, and is a founding member of Artists Against Hunger and Poverty.

Joe is also the owner of Rockland-Bergen Music Festival and a partner in CBGB.
