Keeping Klezmer Music Out of the Closet

Written by Aliza Schauder, editorial@antonnews.com Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:50

Jericho resident Ken Maltz is

devoted to playing and

teaching the genre

“Take it out of the closet and play it for everybody.”

This was Ken Maltz’ mindset when forming Kapelye, the six-member band that specialized in a type of music only two other bands worldwide performed at the time: klezmer.

The 31-year-old music teacher had no reason to believe his debut album would sell in 1980, but with a clarinet in his hands, Maltz set out to save the genre that played within his home for as long as he could remember.

 

The Heart Of Rock And Roll Keeps Beating

Well into their fourth decade,

Huey Lewis and the News mark

a milestone with Sports

When Sports was released three decades ago, MTV was in its infancy and actually playing music videos as radio playlists were becoming increasingly fragmented. It wasn’t exactly the time or place for an anachronistic group featuring horns, doo-wop harmonies and a harp blowing frontman to expect any kind of chart success. But that’s exactly what Huey Lewis and the News did with their 1983 studio album. The band’s third studio outing not only went septuple platinum, but it topped the Billboard Top 200 charts in 1984, yielded five Top 20 hits (four of which broached the Top 10) and made them fixtures on MTV and the radio. And while it’s ballsy to say the outcome went according to plans, Huey Lewis is clear that there was a clear strategy in place when it came time to hit the studio.

Musical gypsies pull its

funk caravan into

Huntington

Sister Sparrow may travel in the company of the Dirty Birds, but the only thing filthy about this octet is the horn-driven funk that’s been honed through a relentless touring schedule. With vocalist Arleigh Kincheloe fronting the band and being the foundation with the group along with harp-blowing brother Jackson and drumming cousin Bram forming the foundation of the band, SS&TDB has spent most of the past year as road dogs. Not only did they drop their second album Pound of Dirt last year, 2012 also found the band playing South by Southwest and Bonnaroo, sharing a bill with Counting Crows and wrapping up the year opening multiple dates for Gov’t Mule, including the headliner’s annual New Year’s Eve show. But for the whirlwind that last year was, Arleigh Kincheloe’s biggest accomplishment was coming out on the other side with a renewed sense of purpose upon the completion of her crew’s sophomore bow.
   

Museum Of Art Hosts Gatsby Ball

Saturday, 13 July 2013 00:00
The Great Gatsby, Nassau County Museum of Art’s 2013 Museum Ball was held on Saturday, June 8. Guests got into the spirit of the fabled Jazz Age with flapper dresses, headbands, feathers, and mountains of sparkling jewelry. The lavish tented pavilions for the cocktail hour and dinner similarly evoked the extravagant décor of Long Island’s Gold Coast history. The Museum Ball is the museum’s major annual fundraising affair, raising significant support for exhibitions and educational programming.
The 2013 Ball was chaired by Museum Board Member Angela Susan Anton, the publisher and owner of Anton Community Publications. The Journal Committee was chaired by M. Patricia Janco-Tupper, senior vice president, wealth advisor for Wells Fargo Bank; and Rebecca Creavin, senior vice president, private banker for Wells Fargo Bank. The museum offers its congratulations to the chairmen and committee members for a very successful and beautiful event.
 

25 Great Summer Bargains On Long Island

Written by Dave Gil de Rubio, dgilderubio@antonnews.com Friday, 12 July 2013 00:00

Now that the hottest season is in full swing, it’s that time of year when exploring what your surroundings have to offer in your free time is the best way to go. And if this can be done on the cheap, it’s all the better. The following are myriad adventures you can undertake when your wallet is as light as the clothing you’re wearing.

1. Listen To The Music — One of the best venues around is Nikon@Jones Beach, an open air shed that presents its offerings where sea meets land. But with concert prices being what they are, what’s a music fan to do? Your best bet is to head down to Jones Beach, (by sundown, the tolls are closed), bring yourself a blanket and/or folding chair and soak up the sounds of your favorite musical artist all while doing outside the pricey confines of the venue. You may not be seeing anything, but music is best enjoyed with ears anyway. Please visit www.jonesbeach.com for the schedule.
