Here are some of the names confirmed for that night: Amy Helm, Ben Perowsky, Bethany Yarrow, Dave Dreiwitz, Don Byron, Gail Ann Dorsey, Jack DeJohnette, Jeremy Bernstein, Jerry Marotta, John Medeski, Elizabeth Mitchell & Dan Littleton, Larry Grenadier, Marco Benevento, Natalie Merchant, Rachel Yamagata, Rufus Cappadocia, Simi Stone, Tracy Bonham and more T.B.A!
