NYACK, N.Y. -- Who says the doc can't rock?
On Nov. 2, Nyack Hospital’s Battle of the Bands will give local physicians and their bands the chance to rock on for a cause, thanks to the annual live music event supporting the hospital's pediatric emergency department.
Featuring an array of soft, contemporary, traditional and progressive rock, the evening will showcase a variety of bands comprised of doctors, surgeons and other medical professionals. These include radiologist Dr. Ken Blumberg and his band The Temple Dudes; hematologist/ oncologist Dr. Bob March and the Magic 8-Ball Band; and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Barry Kraushaar, gastroenterologist Dr. Stephen Goodman and neurologist Dr. Lyle Dennis of the band Miss Diagnosis.
In addition to enjoying the music, guests can enjoy a southern BBQ as well as beer and wine offerings. Commemorative t-shirts are available for purchase and an auction will be held the evening of the event.
Nyack Hospital's Battle of the Bands will be held at West Rock in Nanuet on Thursday, Nov. 2. The event begins at 6 p.m. and all proceeds will support the hospital's new Pediatric Emergency Department.
