An entertainment-packed evening will celebrate the life of beloved music icon, Joe Dady, on November 16 at Hochstein Music Hall. More than fifty performers from the Rochester area and beyond will come together to perform Joe’s songs and songs he’ll be most remembered for.

One half of Rochester’s own Dady Brothers for over forty years, Joe died from complications of Myelodysplastic Syndrome earlier this year.

In addition to being a talented singer-songwriter and proficient on a multitude of instruments, Joe also had a passion for teaching. He shared his talent and his love of music with hosts of students in his home in the Hemlock Hills. He and his brother, John, performed thousands of concerts together, including hundreds of school performances, always encouraging young people to explore different types of music or pick up an instrument themselves. One local music phenom recently commented that the growing resurgence of young musicians in Rochester playing in the Roots Tradition can be largely attributed to the influences of Joe and John Dady.  

A local legend and longtime friend of John and Joe, Jack Garner, will host the evening.  All proceeds from ticket sales will go toward establishing a scholarship in Joe’s name at Hochstein School of Music for students who might not otherwise have the resources for music lessons.
