By Gary Wien


originally published: 12/22/2015

Light of Day WinterFest 2016 Preview: Part 1Light of Day returns to the tri-state area with shows in Philadelphia, New York, and New Jersey.  These shows feature incredible artists performing for a good cause -- to use the power of music to raise money and awareness in its continuing battle to defeat Parkinson’s disease and related illnesses such as PSP and ALS within our lifetime.

Here’s a look at some of the artists and can’t miss shows for Light of Day WinterFest 2016.  Since it’s likely you’ll only be able to hit one venue at a time, we’re highlighting our favorite place to be for each night of Light of Day.

Please be generous and donate to the Light of Day Foundation to help bring about a cure sooner than later.
