Apr. 19 A Homegrown Music Concert encore: The DICK FAWCETT BAND. This Homegrown Music Archive feature spotlights a short-lived but popular Scranton-area group headed by Leroy Pelicci, who went on to record for RCA records. The group was known for their jazzy original material by Pelicci and their jam-band style performances with some first-rate regional musicians, including saxophonist Nick Driscoll and guitarist Neil Nicastro. This encore consists of a live Homegrown Music concert given in September 1998, a few days after which Pelicci abruptly adjourned the band. This memorable performance marked the group at its height.
