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.”

Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women.
The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40 percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots.
