DNR Slays ‘Em At Levitt (Rimshot)

DNR is a popular classic rock band, with a twist:  The musicians are all local doctors and lawyers.

How can you tell which is which?

Watch closely when they perform.  If someone passes out from dancing too hard, the doctors give CPR.

The lawyers give out business cards.

Seriously, folks, DNR truly gives back to the community.  This Saturday (Sept. 10, 8 p.m.), for example, the band plays its 2nd annual “Tribute to First Responders Everywhere” at the Levitt Pavilion.

The timing is perfect:  The next day is 9/11.  The concert is free, but donations are encouraged.  All proceeds go to Westport EMS — our own superb first responders.

The entire weekend, in fact, is dedicated to remembering 9/11, and collecting funds for Westport EMS.

This Friday (Sept. 9, 8 p.m.) features Civil Twilight, a South African alt-rock trio.

And Sunday (Sept. 11, 7 p.m.) brings the Fairfield Counts.  They’ll tailor their swing/big band program to honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11, allowing for reflection, tributes, and celebrations of life.

As is traditional on closing night, concert-goers are urged to bring canned goods for the Women’s Food Closet.

So a doctor, a lawyer and a musician walk into an outdoor music pavilion…

One response to “DNR Slays ‘Em At Levitt (Rimshot)

  1. Dan,

    Thanks for letting everyone know about DNR’s benefit gig Saturday night. They are annually the Levitt’s biggest, non-benefit attraction and their regularly scheduled show was, as always, fabulous. They are a true R&R cover band who appeal to all ages. I love seeing little kids and grandparents alike dancing, clapping and singing along. A great time is always had by everyone.

    Hope to see you there.
