PAWLING, N.Y. (AP) — Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer Daryl Hall wants to add an outdoor stage at his music venue and restaurant in upstate New York.

Hall opened Daryl’s House on Halloween 2014 in the Dutchess County town of Pawling, on the Connecticut border 65 miles north of New York City. The Poughkeepsie Journal reports (pojonews.co/24bSkf6) Hall plans to build a stage behind the restaurant to hold concerts on a lawn that can accommodate more than 1,000 people.

The first concert is scheduled for May 27 with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.

Town officials say the project is under review and hasn’t received final approvals.

Hall, of the duo Hall and Oates, films his Internet and cable television music program, “Live From Daryl’s House,” at his Pawling restaurant. The former longtime Dutchess County resident now lives in nearby Sherman, Connecticut.
