Cirillo was the director and vice president of communications for the Knicks from 1984 through 1997, when he and Starks established a strong bond that still stands today.

Each artist will perform three of Cirillo’s rich, story-telling lyrics, as well as a series of their own original composition. Adam E will perform Hey Professor, Newport and The Wine Bar, while Rosen’s playlist includes The Troubadour, Sweet Honey and The Sojourn. It is fitting that the debut will take place at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway, where Cirillo began his public relations career in 1981 under Tim Rooney. His public relations firm Cirillo World has handled public relations for the casino since its inception in 2006. The Brooklyn-born Cirillo is a longtime resident of Chappaqua, NY.
