Daryl Hall and Friends To Tribute T-Bone Wolk on Live From Daryl's House
The 30th edition of Daryl Hall's Live From Daryl's House will be a celebration of the life of the late T-Bone Wolk, the longtime musical director for Daryl Hall and John Oates, who passed away on Feb. 27 from a heart attack at the age of 58.
The episode brings together several former members of the band, including guitarist G.E. Smith, sax player Mark Rivera and drummer Mickey Curry, with current members Paul Pesco and Charlie DeChant for a set of T-Bone's favorite songs, including The Band's "The Weight," NRBQ's "If I Don't Have You," the Isley Bros.' "Caravan of Love," Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes' "I Miss You," Professor Longhair's "In the Night," Percy Mayfield's "Please Send Me Someone to Love" and H&O's own "Change of Season." The installment debuts May 15 at www.lfdh.com.
"Singing 'I Miss You' during the show was a transcendental moment for me," said Daryl. "This LFDH is the ultimate homage to my friend and musical partner."
Wolk was the musical director, bassist and guitarist, for Daryl Hall and John Oates for nearly 30 years, starting with their 1981 album, Private Eyes. His last performance with them was Jan. 30 at the Jamaica Blues and Jazz Festival in Montego Bay, captured on last month's installment of Live From Daryl's House.
The episode will include a menu of some of T-Bone's favorite foods, including garlic pizza from La Manda's in White Plains, NY, as well as homemade meat loaf cooked up by T-Bone's 91-year old father. A special broccoli rabe, one of T-Bone's signature dishes, will be prepared by Vinnie LaMorte. T-Bone famously created this dish live on MTV in the '80s during a guest VJ segment by Daryl and John.
On June 11, look for Daryl to perform with former Live From Daryl's House guests Chromeo at Bonnaroo, where he'll be taking the webcast experience to the live masses at the famed Tennessee festival.
