International Classic Rock Fans go Beyond the Pale in Westbury, NY

The band that gave the world “A Whiter Shade of Pale” almost 50 years ago is still skipping “the light fandango” and so are its diehard fans, who are coming from as far away as Oman to hear them in Westbury, NY, on Saturday, July 12 and to party at the first Procol Harum convention on the east coast.

Fans are really going beyond the “Pale” and traveling from as far as Norway, Britain, and all over the United States, including California, Kansas, Texas and Florida, to enjoy Procol and celebrate the band’s illustrious career with a day-long party at Mirelle’s of Westbury, just down the block from the band’s show at The Space.

The “In Held 'Twas N.Y.” convention will include food, drink, and fun, as well as music from two Procol tribute bands: Broken Barricades, from New York, and the Palers’ Band, an international musical ensemble.

All inclusive admission is $92 per person. Pre-Procol show festivities are from 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. After-show party begins at 10:15 p.m. with an expected appearance from the members of Procol Harum itself.

The event is sponsored by two long-established fan organizations, Beyond the Pale, based in Britain and Norway, and The Homburg Society, headquartered in New York.

Since 2000, Beyond the Pale has sponsored seven such international events, which have been attended by hundreds of fans from around the world.
