TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider has assembled an all-star lineup of rock musicians for the Jam For Autism benefit show. The performance will take place at Westbury, New York’s NYCB Theatre at Westbury on April 19. The evening will support Sid Jacobson JCC programs serving children, teens and adults with autism spectrum disorders and their families. In addition to Snider, the benefit will feature BLUE ÖYSTER CULT’s Eric Bloom and Buck Dharama, Debbie Gibson, John Hampson, Randy Jackson, Chad Kimball, TWISTED SISTER’s Mark Mendoza, BLACK SABBATH’s Bobby Rondinelli and MOUNTAIN’s Leslie West.
Dee Snider recently filmed a video for the song “Mack The Knife”, with his son, Cody Blue Snider, in the director’s chair. Producing the clip was Robby Starbuck, who has previously worked with TIMES OF GRACE, AUGUST BURNS RED, SILVERSTEIN, A STATIC LULLABY and A SKYLIT DRIVE.
“Mack The Knife” comes off Dee’s new studio album, “Dee Does Broadway”, which will be released on May 8 via Razor & Tie. The CD features Dee’s powerful voice and theatrical persona as he exudes his rock ‘ n’ roll take on several Broadway classics. The new album will coincide with the release of his first-ever autobiography, “Shut Up And Give Me The Mic” (Gallery Books) on May 8.
