Durham Food Truck Owners Reunited With Touring Artist

May 29, 2014 by admin

Becky Cascio and her husband, Mike Hacker, are the co-owners of renowned Durham food truck Pie Pushers. Their pizza-focused truck’s busy schedule sometimes keeps Becky and Mike from seeing family and friends as often as they wish.

Becky rarely is able to see her godfather, Joe Turano. The California resident has his own busy schedule as a touring musician: the keyboard player and music director for legendary jazz singer Al Jarreau.

Yes, the same Al Jarreau who performed at the Carolina Theatre earlier this month (May 1). How about three cheers for serendipity?

Becky and Mike were able to see Joe – and deliver him some tasty pizzas — after the show (see pics below), while Carolina Theatre donor Aminifu Harvey helped capture the moment.

We’re glad that Al Jarreau’s Carolina Theatre date provided the opportunity for such a heart-warming reunion.
