The Palace Theater’s presentation of The Charlie Daniels Band, which was postponed in October due to the untimely death of the band's keyboardist, Joel ‘Taz’ DiGregorio, has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 21, at 8 pm. Tickets for the new date can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at www.palacetheaterct.org  or in person at the box office, 100 East Main St., Waterbury.

DiGregorio unexpectedly died in a car crash three days before the band’s original Waterbury tour stop on Oct. 15 prompting the band to cancel several performances. Ticket holders who did not a request refund when the original Palace concert was cancelled will be able to use their same tickets for the new date.

Known for his fiddle playing and rebel anthems, Charlie Daniels is a true music icon. For 50 years, his exhilarating mixture of rock, country, bluegrass, blues, and gospel has propelled such hits as “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” Long Haired Country Boy,” and “The South’s Gonna Do It,” among many others. His performance at the Palace Theater is sponsored by Naugatuck Savings Bank and WTNH/MyTV9.

In addition to the concert, the Palace’s Motorcycle Ride fundraiser and pre-show festival also cancelled out of respect last October, have been rescheduled for April 21. The Motorcycle Ride will take place from 1 to 4 pm, and the pre-show activities, which will feature live entertainment and various vendors, will begin at 4 pm.
