We’re with the bands: Fred Norris returning to Yonkers, Kevin Bacon heading to Garrison

If you’re a celebrity without a band on the side, you might not really be a celebrity.

On Feb. 9, the last time he was at the Yonkers venue, Norris picked me out of the crowd and likened me to the “Verizon Guy.” It seems like only yesterday; so, yes, I can hear him now. Saturday’s showtime is 10:30 p.m.

Of course, when Norris performed at Mickey Spillane’s in Eastchester in December, Suburbarazzi had a field day with that, too.

Admission to the festival’s not cheap — $75 per adult, $25 children for visitors ages 9 to 20 — but the celebration will donate all event proceeds to programs that protect the Hudson River and regional watershed areas. The festival runs rain or shine from noon to 5 p.m., May 18, at Boscobel Restoration (1601 Route 9D). The Bacon Brothers are scheduled to gig there that day at 3:30 p.m.
