New Year’s Eve and music normally immediately bring to mind Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve and as much lip-synching as you can stand. So rather than put yourself through watching the ball drop, the following are a number of live entertainment options that involve real live people performing and not pantomiming.
The holidays are traditionally where you either go big or go home. And while no one is saying that you should blow up your retirement fund to buy something out of the Neiman-Marcus catalogue, there are still plenty of great gifts to give and get in the worlds of music, DVDs and books.
Everyone over the age of 25 remembers when going to a record store to buy music was a semi-regular ritual. Now, that’s a quaint notion as purchasable recordings aren’t much more than anonymous sound files. And while brick-and-mortar behemoths like Tower Records and Record World have fallen by the wayside, Mr. Cheapo continues to persevere and flourish going into its third decade.
Around the corner from the Mineola Diner where Roslyn Road meets Jericho Turnpike sits one of two Mr. Cheapo locations, (the other is in Commack). It has become a mainstay of not only Mineola, but also vinyl fanatics from around Long Island and all five boroughs.
On Saturday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m., the Sisterhood of the Community Synagogue proudly presents “Stars of Broadway,” an annual production featuring Broadway’s brightest talent at The Community Synagogue, Congregational Hall, 160 Middle Neck Rd, in Port Washington. Proceeds will help support Sisterhood enrichment programs and community activities.
Back by popular demand, New York casting director/producer Stephen DeAngelis presents five of New York’s finest vocalists who will recreate their most memorable musical moments and share behind-the-scene stories and amusing anecdotes in this exclusive all-new concert event.
All Long Island residents are welcome to come out Saturday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Sept. 29 when Long Island Traditions presents “Working the Waters: Maritime Culture of Long Island” in collaboration with the NY Marine Trades Association Toby Boat Show in Massapequa. “Working the Waters” will present to the public first-hand accounts about the contemporary and historic traditions of commercial and recreational fishermen, the factors affecting these traditions and their future on Long Island.
The program is the culminating event of ongoing documentation by Long Island Traditions Folklorist and executive director Nancy Solomon. Since 1987 Solomon has been documenting the culture and traditions of Long Island maritime tradition bearers, ranging from decoy carvers and driftwood painters to trap builders, boat model makers and net menders.
