  2. JIM DOLAN CHALLENGES FANS TO BREAK...

    It starts with a kazoo…well, 6,000 of them, to be exact…and ends with a $100,000 donation to ALS.

    Earlier on the “TODAY” show, Jim Dolan accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from Knicks legend Patrick Ewing, Rangers General Manager Glen Sather and Inglewood, California Mayor James T. Butts as Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh doused him with ice water on live TV. Dolan then issued a fun and unique challenge of his own to benefit the ALS Association.

    Dolan challenged fans attending Madison Square Garden on September 18 to join him in an unprecedented gathering of 6,000 people simultaneously playing the kazoo.

    Combining his passion for music with his commitment to philanthropy, Dolan has pledged a $100,000 donation to ALS if the world record is set during this extraordinary undertaking.

    This landmark moment for charity will take place at approximately 7:15 p.m. when the Eagles’ opening band -- JD & the Straight Shot – perform the song “Governor’s Blues,” which includes a kazoo solo. The band will be joined onstage by several celebrity guests and asks for the participation of the entire crowd. Fans will receive a kazoo upon entering the Arena. The crowd will be instructed on how to play the kazoo section of the song.

    In addition to being Madison Square Garden Executive Chairman and Cablevision Systems Corporation President and CEO, Dolan is also founder and frontman of JD & The Straight Shot. On September 13 and 18, the band will open for the Eagles at Madison Square Garden as part of the launch for their upcoming album, Where I’ve Been, produced by Joe Walsh. The band’s fifth album features several breakthrough singles including “Governor’s Blues,” which challenges some of today’s most well-known political figures; “Under That Hood,” a transformative single that tells the tragic story of Trayvon Martin; and “Hard to Find,” which will be featured in the highly-anticipated film, St. Vincent’s, starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.
