The Dark Side Of The Moose

Pink Floyd tribute band to perform October 20 Halloween show in Glen Cove

This weekend, fans of Pink Floyd can expect to witness a Halloween spectacle, as local tribute band Us and Floyd performs at Glen Cove Moose Lodge. The Oct. 20 event will include a costume contest, raffle prizes and free food.

A fundraiser for local filmmaker Scott Goldberg and his feature-length film project, The Three, the $25 entry fee will go toward raising money needed to produce the film. Because the film is in the dark/horror genre, Goldberg, who also sings in the band, said he felt it was appropriate to host a fundraising event around Halloween.

“The film comments on socio-political themes which are prevalent in our society today, such as war, humanity and corruption,” says Goldberg. “I’ve worked to make this feature because I feel we have a lot to say about those subjects.”

An avid Pink Floyd, Goldberg helped form the band several years ago, while recently finalizing the current lineup of musicians. Goldberg sings the parts of Roger Waters, and all of the band members have an extensive love and knowledge of the music of Pink Floyd. This past Saturday, the band performed another local gig, at J.D. Gates.

“Having live music and sharing the love of Floyd is something I have wanted to share with everyone for a long time,” Goldberg says.

Glen Cove Moose Lodge is located at 22 Continental Place, a venue that can hold approximately 130 people. The not-for-profit organization promotes itself as music-friendly lodge that supports musicians. A stage was built and a PA system installed earlier this year as the lodge has begun hosting more musical events, including open mic nights. The acts perform in the main hall, while a full bar is available in the basement.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the fee is $25 for the first hour, which includes free food. Beginning at 7:30 pm., the fee is $20. Costumes are encouraged and a contest will be held at some point in the evening. Partygoers can expect three full hours of Pink Floyd songs to help them get into the Halloween spirit.

“Pink Floyd seamlessly bridged music, the arts and performance—it’s a great fit for this dynamic event supporting dark cinema,” says drummer Doug Betensky. “Guests can look forward to three live sets of Floyd performed by our eight piece band and a fun night filled with food, contests, raffles, and costumes.”

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families. 

 

This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar. 

 

I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
