For nine years and nearly 300 performances, art & music promoter, Tony Falco, presented some of the most respected and creative artists working in music today, in what became a legendary private concert venue over the magnificent barn he’d built behind his home.

On November 27, 2009, The Falcon opened the doors to its new home, listening room and art gallery; a 19th century factory building perched over Marlboro Falls at 1348 Route 9W, Marlboro NY. Here it will continue to present the most well regarded musicians in traditional & contemporary jazz, blues, soul, folk, world, rock, big band & chamber music.

The Falcon welcomes everyone, with no cover charge, no minimum, no tickets. Those who can are encouraged to feed our donation box, a symbol of democracy in the arts. This fund goes directly to the performing musicians, demonstrating our respect & gratitude for their skill, contribution and livelihood.

The Doors & More! Featuring: John Henriksen/Vocals, Barry Petrillo/Guitar, Brian Fores/Keyboards, Frank Casciaro/Bass, Jude DeFalco/Drums

Their performances have been called "spooky, in their accuracy", “unbelievable”, and "electrifying". Upstate New York’s, Feast of Friends is not your typical "parody" tribute act. No retro costumes, wigs or Jim Morrison look-alike holding a golden microphone.

Feast of Friends masterfully perform all of the band's most popular classics and deeper tracks for the most dedicated Doors fans as well as performing their original music, reminiscent of The Doors’ unmistakable sound.

The time to hesitate is over. Step back in time on a mind-bending journey to the here and now and experience the unparalleled “live action” that is Feast of Friends!

"Gregg Allmans secret weapon."- Glide Magazine

Since the Fall of 2008, Scott Sharrard has been the touring guitarist for the Gregg Allman Band. He’s been called “One of the best guitarists in the country” by Billboard and “the next Eric Clapton or Mike Bloomfield” by the Indianapolis Star Tribune. Gregg Allman, has high praise for the guitarist: “I know all about guitar players —I’ve seen the very best — and Scott Sharrard is the perfect guitarist for my band. He understands that you don’t need to play just for the sake of playing; Scott isn’t one of those guys who thinks they’re getting paid by the note. He never steps on the vocals, and leaves plenty of room for everyone else to do their thing, but when it’s time to solo, Scott delivers, boy.”

Marlboro, NY   See Map
A jazz journeyman with a taste for adventure, pianist Michael Wolff has explored improvisation in a variety of milieus, ranging from bop to pop-jazz to worldbeat over the course of his multi-decade year career.

In 1975, Wolff landed a gig with the legendary saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. Soon, Wolff was gigging with other greats, including Sonny Rollins and Airto Moreira. The jobs led to a stint as arranger and musical director for vocalist Nancy Wilson, before Wolff was tapped as bandleader for the Arsenio Hall Show in the mid-'80s.

After leaving television, Wolff returned to jazz, issuing a series of recordings, including Jumpstart (1995) and 2 AM (1995) (both featuring a trio rounded out by drummer Tony Williams and bassist Christian McBride), as well as Portraiture: the Blues Period (1998), and others.

A regular gig at the West Bank Cafe in Manhattan led to several recording dates, which resulted in Impure Thoughts (2000) and Intoxicate (2001).

Music aficionado Stephen Clair is renowned in Beacon NY as the driving force behind concerts of all sizes, and is the founder of the Beacon Music Factory, which teaches music to as many adults as it does kids.

These endeavors hardly stand in the way of Clair’s own music-making. His current 5-piece band adds significant spice to Clair’s catalog, and lifts the songs—new and old - to the rafters. Expect a new album this Spring.

Not all FUNK is created equal. A beat with no syncopation, a bass with no grooooooooove, vocals with no soul - leave the listener with a severe case of Honky-Pox. We recommend a soul vaccination administered painlessly by The Funk Junkies.

This thirteen piece funk orchestra, includes a five piece horn section, and delivers their versions of music by Tower of Power, James Brown, The Ohio Players, Kool and the Gang, Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Average White Band, Sly & the Family Stone, Chaka Kahn, Montel Jordan, Prince, and more!
