We would like to invite you to our Fourth Annual Musician’s Aid Society of New York Jubilee and Fundraiser aboard the Jewel featuring Gent Treadly and special musical guests Charles Neville and Kenny Brooks on June 13th, 2013.

The Musician's Aid Society of New York is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which strives to provide the resources necessary for the artistic and musical growth of deserving musicians in the New York metropolitan area. MASNY works to promote musical education and the artistic development of these meritorious musicians.
Part of MASNY's beauty is in its dynamic community of musicians and supporters who recognize the value of music in childhood development and the rich potential in each beneficiary. Please help us enrich lives through music and support the transformative power of what MASNY does.
GT has gone down countless roads, burst several hundred blood vessels, stormed the gates of heaven and sustained inestimable loss during its 14 years as a band (yikes!). Having toured with the late great Vince Welnick of The Grateful Dead for many years, Gent Treadly continues to carry the flame - a diehard acolyte in search of the ultimate groove.
Since its inception in 1994 Gent Treadly has been a movable feast of some of the finest players in NYC. The lineup consists of one of the slammingest rhythm sections you'll ever hear: Greg Koerner on bass (a veteran of New York bands Uncle Buzz, The Joneses and Crimson Rose and a "phil-in" for the Dark Star Orchestra) and Tom Kaelin on drums (formerly of Gravity, Dreamspeak and Atlantic recording artists, The Hatters). Our beloved brother Mike Jaimes passed ad astra in October 2007 and our good friend David Berg has stepped in to fill some enormous shoes.
The band is frequently rounded out by special guests Craig Dreyer on saxophone (The Dreyer Bros., Keith Richards), Peter Levin on keyboards (God Street Wine, Zen Tricksters), Buddy Cage on pedal steel (New Riders of the Purple Sage, Bob Dylan) and Anastasia Rene (Percy Hill, Assembly of Dust) on vocals.
Gent Treadly is truly a unique act and the players are the real deal who have evolved into one of the most heralded units in New York City - offering a precocious blend of bluesy improvisational roots rock. Four out of five major artists agree: over the years these guys have been joined onstage by members of The Grateful Dead, Phish, Jane's Addiction, Spin Doctors, moe, The Band and many others.
