National Acts To Perform at Sept. 23 Benefit For Wife of A Fellow Musician

On Sept. 23 at Maxwell's in Hoboken, music lovers will get a glimpse of what the brotherhood of musicians is all about.

Six national acts will donate their time and talent, and Maxwell's the space, to raise money for the Karp family. Marylou Karp, wife of Blind Pig recording artist and singer-songwriter Peter Karp, was diagnosed in June with stage 4 ovarian cancer.

Marylou, 50, is the mother of two children, James and Courtney. Her illness was initially misdiagnosed as a herniated disc, and she is currently undergoing aggressive treatment at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.

Gina Fox, who is organizing the event and will perform, said of her friend's diagnosis, "this is a fight for life. The physical, financial and emotional stresses that go along with this fight are overwhelming, and this benefit is meant to help the Karp family with crippling medical bills."

Ovarian cancer, referred to as a silent killer, is often at stage 3 or 4 before it is properly diagnosed. It is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in women, with one out of 100 women succumbing to it.

The show begins at 7 pm, and donations are $20 at the door. All proceeds will be donated to the Karp family. (Anyone who wishes to help but cannot attend the event is asked to visit, where a secure PayPal link is in place.)

Performing that evening are:

  • Nicole Hart & NRG featuring Gil Paris
  • Charlie Jones & Paul "Hernandez" Unsworth featuring Dave Keyes
  • Gina Fox
  • Dave Malachowski & The Woodstock Allstars-Pete Levin & Jill Stevenson
  • Dennis Gruenling & His Tribute to Little Walter Band
  • Popa Chubby
  • The Mudlarks with Blondie's Paul Carbonara

Thanks Louis

Hey Louis - Thanks for posting all of those crazy pictures. With no tour until November I've got to do something to stay busy and keep out of trouble.

He also played in Paul Young's band. If all goes well, we'll be doing more work with Justin in the near future. He can be seen and heard at For those of you in the USA, they are airing a TV commercial I wrote and produced for SBLI USA. Its been running a lot on CNN. Talk soon

Tour De Carbonara

Well, on Blondie's summer break, he's been biking up a storm and he's been having a great season so far. He won a race in May and has been placing in the top ten pretty consistently! Go Paul!
