August 12. Woodstock’s legendary drummer Jack DeJohnette was proudly profiled in the December 2010 issue of Chronogram. As the former Miles Davis sideman hits his seventh decade, the Bearsville Theater honors his invaluable contributions to jazz with an evening headlined by his one-time student and Grammy winner Terri Lyne Carrington’s quartet and features such well wishers as Don Byron, Sheila Jordan, Greg Osby, and others. Prior to the concert is a benefit dinner for food-relief organization the Queens Galley with music by vocalist Teri Roiger, bassist John Menegon, and guitarist Mike DiMicco. (The Chris Robinson Brotherhood crows August 24; the Smithereens explode August 25.) Dinner 6pm; concert 7:30pm. Dinner and concert: $55; concert only $30. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com
