David Crosby and Graham Nash have signed on to perform on October 23rd in Manhattan at the T.J. Martell Foundation for Leukemia, Cancer and AIDS Research’s 37th annual Honors Gala at Cipriani. The show comes directly after Crosby, Stills & Nash’s closing night of their five-night run at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. Other performers and presenters set to appear at the Charity gala are country stars Little Big Town, Regis Philbin, Susan Lucci, Ronnie James Dio’s widow Wendy Dio, Motown’s Berry Gordy, Tony Martell, and honorees Russell Simmons and Randy Jackson, among others.

David Crosby told us that it’s a pleasure and an honor to perform for needy and worthy causes: “Doing that kind of stuff, benefits; I probably do 30 of them a year, or somethin.’ There are people that do many more — Jackson (Browne) and Bonnie (Raitt) do many more. Nash, Jackson, and Bonnie, and I are the usual suspects. But they are their own award. Just doing them makes you feel better than getting paid ever did — or probably ever will.”

SIDE NOTES

Crosby, Stills, & Nash, along with Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, will perform a special benefit tonight (October 3rd) at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. The concert is designed to help defeat Proposition 32 on the State of California’s November election ballot. Both CSN and Morello hope to “increase awareness of the deceptive measure designed to mislead voters and increase corporations’ power by gutting important campaign transparency laws.”

Tonight’s event will feature guest speakers, including acclaimed actor/producer/director Edward James Olmos, with an acoustic performance by Morello and CSN closing the show. During set changes, guest speakers will advocate for Proposition 32′s defeat.
