Deborah and / or Pete, I saw your post on Facebook, but I don't have an account on that social media site, so I'm replying here regarding your search for NY/NJ metro area rentals for a Sprinter van with passenger and cargo area for your gear. I hope this link helps...but this place is in New Jersey which is close to Newark, but not to the Kennedy Airport in NY which is on Long Island and is about three quarter of an hour or more depending on traffic (which is a challenge in NYC and Jersey). I'm sure there are many options in the NY area. I'm not sure what airport you'll be flying into from the UK when you come over for the spring micro tour of the tri-state area or is it more like quad with PA.
I've already got tickets for Daryl's House on May 9th (Thursday) which is about 10 minutes from my house, and I'm really siked that you'll be playing so close with your complete Band! I still want to get tickets on my B-day in NYC at the Cutting Room but that is a hike from the Mid Hudson area plus they have a higher minimum (food/drink) than Daryl's, which makes it more of a challenge since I'm not earning that much as I'm between full time jobs and only working part time. Hope to get them as soon as I start making some decent cash again...been a long time since that has happened (due to the economy in this area hasn't been great for several years at least for this fella).
Hope you and I will get a chance to say hello and I can thank you in person for all you do for the Music community and continue to! I will be at Daryl's House at 5pm or as soon as I can get there from work if I have to work that day. Hope to see you hanging out before the actual gig, or after what ever works best for you all. Thanks again for making it happen for the NY area and Hudson Valley fans! Speaking for myself I love your music and I know many other people will if they can hear and experience you live on stage doing what you do at your very best!
Any chance that while you're hear you'll get on any of the upcoming Woodstock festivals that are happening at Watkins Glenn, NY on August 16,17,18) (with the original promoters Michael Lang, etc.) w/ Robert Plant and his Sensational Space Shifters plus many other musicians including Santana on Friday (see this link https://www.woodstock.com/)
and/or the original site in Bethel, NY of Woodstock '69 where they're also having its own festival over the original three day weekend, starting on Thursday evening with a showing of the Original Woodstock film, Friday evening Ringo Starr and his All Star Band is playing along with Edger Winter's Band, and Arlo Guthrie, followed by Santana's Band and the Doobie Brother's on 8/17.? (see this link: https://www.bethelwoodscenter.org/)
Your nephew Jason and his band Led Zeppelin Evening is also playing around this summer with Peter Frampton and will be at Bethel on June 30, which I've seen him play there over the last several years with Foreigner and Heart! Hope you can join all the musical fun in the NY area this year!
Keep Rocking on all sides of the Atlantic and around the globe!
