A legendary crew of musicians will play the Capitol Theatre’s HeadCount benefit in December.

The Capitol Theatre, located just north of New York City in Port Chester, N.Y., has hosted legends including the Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker and Bonnie Raitt. Now, an esteemed crew of musicians from the rock and jam worlds is convening to pay homage to these icons – and to raise money for a worthy cause in the process.

On Dec. 17, revered producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell and his musical partner and wife Teresa Williams will curate “The Capitol Sessions: Songs From A Rock Palace That Impacted The World,” a night of music honoring those who have graced the Cap’s stage and benefitting non-partisan voter registration organization HeadCount.

Jackson Browne and Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen will headline the event, which also will feature Marco Benevento (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead), James Casey (Trey Anastasio Band), Lisa Fischer (Luther Vandross, the Rolling Stones), Amy Helm (Levon Helm), Connor Kennedy (Steely Dan, Amy Helm), Eric Krasno (Soulive, Lettuce), Tony Leone (Levon Helm, Chris Robinson Brotherhood), Grahame Lesh (Phil Lesh & Friends), Adam Minkoff (Zappa Plays Zappa, The Machine), Karina Rykman, Teresa Williams, and The War & Treaty.

“The Capitol Theatre is one of rock ‘n’ roll’s last remaining rock palaces,” said Dayglo Presents founder Peter Shapiro, who operates the Capitol Theatre and serves on HeadCount’s board, in a statement. “A place where many of rock’s most beloved legends performed — the Rolling Stones, the Grateful Dead, David Bowie, Janis Joplin, to name a few. We can’t wait to celebrate the iconic songs that have been played over the years at The Cap. It will be very cool for The Capitol Sessions to happen on the same stage where these songs were originally performed. It’s going to be an epic night!”

“The Capitol Sessions: Songs From A Rock Palace That Impacted The World” is being presented in conjunction with RWE Partners, a company focused on uniting people around music, culture and philanthropy that has also worked on charity concerts including Love Rocks NYC.

Tickets for the event go onsale on Nov. 19 at noon ET.
