Stone Pony to host Federici memorial

Friends and fans of keyboardist Danny Federici will gather at the shore town's famous Stone Pony nightclub Wednesday evening to pay tribute to the original E Street Band member who died Thursday after a three-year battle with melanoma. Federici, 58, had performed with Bruce Springsteen since the late 1960s and became a stalwart in the E Street Band as Springsteen emerged from the Jersey shore club scene to achieve international stardom.

Stone Pony house promoter Kyle Brendle said those attending would have the opportunity to share their memories of Danny and would be invited to contribute to a memorial fund set up in his memory at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
