Beachland to Host Tribute Concert for Association for Consciousness Exploration Founder

Music News


The founder of The Association for Consciousness Exploration (A.C.E.), Jeff Rosenbaum was a real catalyst. The guy used to host drum jams on E. 185th St. and brought “cosmic thinking” people together for the annual Starwood Festival. He died last year.

In order to pay tribute to him, a group of psychedelic rock acts have teamed up for the WinterStar Ball, a free event that takes place at noon on Saturday, March 21, at the Beachland Ballroom. Muruga Booker & the Cosmic Hoedown Band (pictured), Mayan Ruins, Brian Henke, Crystal Ball Band and Phat Man Dee are slated to perform. Donations will be accepted at the door. Workshops will be held during the day. The music starts at 7 p.m. Church of the Subgenius leader Rev. Ivan Stang will serve as MC. Proceeds go to a Rosenbaum memorial fund.
