Steve Katz, a guitarist, singer-songwriter, and producer best known for his work as a member of the renowned, Grammy Award-winning band, Blood, Sweat & Tears, will perform in a livestream on the Facebook page of Dewey Hall on Feb. 13 at 7 p.m.

As reported in a press release, Katz’s performance is part of Dewey Hall’s ongoing 'Keep the Lights On' fundraising campaign. Part of the donations made during the concert will help keep the Hall operating during the COVID-19 pandemic

Like many other local venues, Dewey Hall has experienced financial difficulties since mass gatherings were canceled in Massachusetts last year. While outdoor events were held in the Hall’s back yard during the warm months, and will be held again in the spring, no concerts can be presented in Dewey Hall until the pandemic ebbs.

Meanwhile, the Keep the Lights On campaign has succeeded in raising $21,000 toward the goal of $30,000 required to cover the Hall’s expenses for the next year.
