In tribute to long-time NRBQ drummer Tommy Ardolinowho passed away last month – various bands, musicians, fans and, of course, drummers from all across the northeast gathered at the Met in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, on Sunday, February 19 for a musical homage.

Among the performers were Rikki Bates, Rick Couto, Bob Giusti, David Bottai, Vinny Pagano, Joe Groves, Gary St. Germain, Mike Warner, Klem, Chandler Travis, the Catbirds, the Rizzztones and many others. Throughout the marathon musical memorial, the performers each covered NRBQ songs, and there wasn’t a single song that was repeated during the five-hour bash.

Nippertown contributing photographer Joe Deuel was among the many fans who made the trek for the tribute.
