On September 11, 2001, the Hackel family of Newton lost Paige Farley-Hackel along with Paige’s best friend Ruth McCourt Clifford and four year old daughter Juliana on two separate flights out of Logan airport.
To honor Paige following the attacks, Peter Hackel formed what is now the Super-Group “Soul of a Legend” with this year marking the band’s 16th Anniversary remembering the hero’s and victims of 9/11, and honoring musical legends “Gone Too Soon”. Their annual performance at Newton’s First Baptist Church is designed to “Never Forget” while raising awareness and support for the Paige Farley-Hackel Memorial Playground in Dorchester. Sixteen years turning tragedy into triumph!
The concert will host an extraordinary collection of musicians: James Montgomery, Jon Butcher, Fly Amero (Orleans), Jerry Velez (Jimi Hendrix), Jeff Levine (Hall & Oates), David Hull (Joe Cocker), Pete Hackel , Chris Martin, John Sullivan, Hirsh Gardner, Kevin Graham, Mike Lamm, Joe Maffei, Leah Hinton and Christine Moser, paying tribute to past musical legends : Lennon, Harrison, Hendrix, Morrison, Bowie, Cocker, Prince, Bonham, Mercury, Joplin & Allman and the victims of 9/11.
