Charlie Daniels Band Concert at Palace Cancelled Following Member's Death

The Charlie Daniels Band concert scheduled to take place at the Palace Theater in Waterbury, on Saturday has been cancelled due to the death of the band’s longtime keyboardist and vocalist Joel ‘Taz’ DiGregorio.

DiGregorio, 67, died Wednesday night as a result of injuries he sustained in a single car accident in Cheatham County, TN, while driving to meet the CDB tour bus. The band was scheduled to depart for Cumming, GA, for a concert appearance at the Cumming Country Fair and Festival on Oct. 13.

 “I am in shock now, Taz was one of my best friends,” says Charlie Daniels. “The CDB family has lost a great friend and musician. We traveled many miles together and shared so many nights on the road. We’re going to miss you buddy. You were one of a kind and will never be forgotten.  We send our deepest condolences to the family.”

Out of respect for DiGregorio and the band’s loss, the Palace Theater is also cancelling the venue’s Motorcycle Ride and Fall Street Festival that were integrated with the concert and scheduled to take place before the band’s 8 pm performance. The theater is hoping to reschedule the concert and all related activities for Spring 2012.

Ticket holders are being contacted by the Palace Theater Box Office and will have the option of receiving a full refund or holding onto to their tickets until the potential rescheduled date is announced. For more refund information, contact the Box Office at 203-346-2000.
