Light of Day WinterFest 2016 Preview: Part 2Light 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 our second part of 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.  For the first part of our preview click here.

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