Dean Ween & Friends Confirm New Jersey Benefit Show
Dean Ween will host a benefit concert for his friend Nick Honachefsky, who lost his home and all of his possessions in Hurricane Sandy. The performance will take place at Asbury Park, NJ’s The Saint. Billed as Dean Ween & Friends, the benefit will feature Ween drummer Claude Coleman, Glen McClelland, Chris Harford, Dickie Moist and other “usual suspects.”
As Ween explains, “Like a lot of people I know it’s hard to figure out where to best donate money and resources right now. I’ve just arranged a benefit for my good friend Nick Honachefsky who lost his home and all of his worldly possessions in the storm. I’m hosting a benefit concert at the Saint in Asbury Park, NJ on Sun Nov. 28—“Dean Ween and Friends” featuring Claude Coleman, Glenn McClelland, Chris Harford, Dickie Moist, and the all of the usual suspects to help Nick get back on his feet. The evening will feature new music and old music by Moistboyz, Chris Harford, Jimmy Wilson, members of Ween, etc. More specific details to follow.”
The benefit was originally scheduled for November 11 but was pushed back a few weeks since The Saint still does not have power. Dean Ween has only played a few shows since his band parted ways earlier this year.
