Woodstock Revival Concert to Rock Old Bethpage Restoration Sunday, June 10th

The classic rock scene on Long Island is surging, and this phenomenon has fueled a growing popularity among the many tribute bands who breathe new life into this music at venues across Nassau and Suffolk. The 6th Annual Woodstock Revival is scheduled for Sunday, June 10th and will feature live music by Wonderous Stories, Half Step, Milagro, Jellyband and Dave Diamond Band, who will be recreating the music of The Who, The Grateful Dead, Santana, Sly & The Family Stone, Janis Joplin, The Band, Hendrix, CSNY, Creedence, and more!

Along with all the tie-dyed regalia and familial hugs, the event will showcase live painting and exhibiting by dozens of artists, plus vending, kids’ activities, food & beverage, yoga, massage, and hula hooping.

Says festival producer, Rich Rivkin, “Woodstock Revival is one of my all time favorite days. It’s where I get to dance and hang out at the park with a thousand of my closest friends, and you can see from the expressions on everyone’s face that happiness abounds. There’s clearly a peace & love kind of vibe that is unique to this event, and the music is just amazing.”

Communities of devoted fans have coalesced around these bands during recent years, sparking new friendships and a tangible sense of camaraderie among folks who share a common passion for the music that they grew up with.

When these fans converge to see their favorite bands perform, the energy of the event seems to exceed the sum of its parts. It often becomes more than just a music experience. At its peak, there is a sensation of shared knowingness – something that’s conveyed by a simple glance or smile, among those who find themselves dancing, high fiving, and singing in unison.

This joyous brand of social harmony plays out in spectacular form each summer when Long Island’s annual Woodstock-themed music festival takes the stage at Old Bethpage Village Restoration (1303 Round Swamp Rd, Old Bethpage) June 10th from Noon until 7:30 pm!

Having already gained so much success on her road to continued music development as an artist, songwriter, and performer – she advises other young talents like herself to strive for greatness, saying they should never give up, and adding “nothing is impossible, if you find something you love go out there and give it all you got!”.

Brooke Moriber Performing at NYC’s Mercury Lounge Wednesday, April 11th To Benefit EB Research Partnership

Brooke Moriber  Performing at NYC’s Mercury Lounge Wednesday, April 11th To Benefit EB Research Partnership

With her acclaimed National Anthem performance at Madison Square Garden just this past November following the release of her latest EP “Here and Gone”, singer/songwriter Brooke Moriber is getting ready to hit the stage once more – in support of a great cause. On Wednesday, April 11th she’ll perform live at the Mercury Lounge with support from Julian Morgan in an effort to raise money and awareness for the EB Research Partnership – helping the fight against Epidermolysis Bullosa.

WATCH: Brooke Moriber Sings National Anthem LIVE at Madison Square Garden

A native New Yorker, Moriber has been critically acclaimed for her “clarion voice” by the Associated Press and songs that are “destined for high rotation”. Her distinctive sound ranges in influences from Linda Ronstadt to Amy Lee.

Brooke’s unique career started on the Broadway stage where she earned a reputation for her powerhouse vocals and has received special mention by the New York Times for her acting abilities.

Since the age of fifteen, Brooke has been writing and licensing her own original pop/country/rock music to network television and several soundtracks. Brooke’s remarkable ability to juggle her career as a recording artist and an actor has found her sharing the stage and screen with such performers as The Gin Blossoms, Cindy Lauper, Alan Cumming, Lily Taylor and Kristin Johnston.

WATCH – “Cause The Wave: Eddie Vedder and the EB Research Partnership”

EB Research Partnership (formerly Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation) is the largest 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to funding research aimed at treating and ultimately curing Epidermolysis Bullosa, a group of devastating and life-threatening skin disorders that affect children from birth. An individual with EB lacks a critical protein that binds the layers of skin together. Without this protein, the skin tears apart, blisters and sheers off, leading to severe pain, disfigurement, and wounds that never heal. EB affects the body inside and out. Blisters occur all over the body, as well as in the eyes, mouth, esophagus, and other internal organs. EB causes severe pain, disfigurement, and in too many cases, an early death from an aggressive form of skin cancer. It is estimated that EB affects at least one in every 50,000 births. EB is not specific to any ethnicity or gender. Given that EB affects only 30,000 people in the US, advancing this research relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations.

With donor support, EB Research Partnership has been aggressively and efficiently funding research since 2010. To date, they have raised over $15 million for research grants and been instrumental in securing an additional $35 million for critical EB research. The organization helped to create and continues to support research enabling infrastructure to ensure that treatments will get to those in need as swiftly as possible, and with stars like Moriber and “Pearljam” rocker/activist Eddie Vedder bringing more awareness to the disorder, it can only continue to help in the fight.

And on Wednesday, April 11th Brooke Moriber will help continue that fight as she performs in support of the EB Research Partnership at NYC’s Mercury Lounge (217 E Houston St, New York, NY)!

Jesse Eplan Performing Live at Revolution Music Hall Sunday, February 11th

Jesse Eplan Performing Live at Revolution Music Hall Sunday, February 11th

As Singer/Songwriter and Producer Jesse Eplan gets ready to return to Long Island from his recent move to sunny Florida, he’ll kick off his home visit performing at Revolution Music Hall on Sunday, February 11th at 7PM!

Discovering a knack for music at a very young age, Jesse learned how to play multiple instruments from drums to bass, guitar, keyboards, and polished his vocal talents playing in local bands on his home turf – Long Island, NY. Eplan’s music consists of genres anywhere from Hip-Hop to Pop and R&B, and able to blend them in a unique way and make it his own has come from years of immersing himself in music.

Having first heard Led Zeppelin, ACDC, The Beatles and many of the world’s top music revolutionaries in early adolescence through his teen years – it influenced him immensely as he began performing in bands as a lead singer, drummer and lead guitar player. When he began playing throughout Long Island and Manhattan in various gigs and charity events which raised thousands of dollars helping to fight crohn’s disease, colitis, and breast cancer, he was then able to really cut his teeth as a live musician.

As he began developing perfect pitch from his guitar and piano playing, it helped him immensely with his next stage of music: writing, producing and recording. Purchasing Logic X Pro, he was able to learn the digital audio workstation and music production software with ease, teaching himself every facet of the program and figuring out how to make beats to record his own vocal tracks over. This brought him into a new world of exploring Hip-Hop, R&B and Trap Music which would be where he ultimately found his niche as a successful singer/songwriter and producer.

Since then, he’s made appearances on My Long Island TV’s Rick’s Rising Stars (which airs on Verizon FiOS1), as a guest on Live It Up! with Donna Drake, and performed LIVE on the world famous Jones Beach Bandshell stage for the 2017 “Live at the Shell” Summer Concert Series.

WATCH: Jesse Eplan “DANK” Official Video (CLEAN)

In his latest video “DANK” directed by Big Face and Produced by Black & White Productions, the song encapsulates Eplan’s excitement for his new surroundings – having recently started college at the University of Tampa. He he said of the song in a recent interview with AntiMusic.com “The whole idea around ‘Dank’ is just being yourself, hanging out with friends, and doing what college kids do.” On his excitement for shooting parts of the video in and around campus, Eplan explains “The producer caught some great shots of the city with a drone. We also had great weather so the pool scene was crazy, as was the convertible driving through the streets of Tampa with me and my friends.

And as he gets ready to bring “DANK” and more songs off his recent “Trap Harmony” EP to life LIVE on stage at Revolution Sunday, February 11th at 7PM, fans will have a chance to see him back on his home turf!

Annamaria Attending 4th Annual Event “The Soirée” At The B.B. King Blues Club, NYC This Saturday, January 27th

Annamaria Attending 4th Annual Event “The Soirée” At The B.B. King Blues Club, NYC This Saturday, January 27th

As the 60th Annual GRAMMY® Awards get ready to make their return to NYC, NYC based Singer/Songwriter Annamaria is ready to kick off the celebration as she hits the red carpet for the 4th Annual Soirée at the world famous B.B. King Blues Club (237 W 42nd St, New York, NY)!

THE SOIREE is The Music Industry’s Annual Kick-off Gala during GRAMMY Weekend, and has quickly become one of the most anticipated leading annual music industry events. Bringing together Grammy Nominees and Winners, music industry executives, major labels, managers, producers, licensors, agents, celebrities and industry influencers – bringing the young star right in the center of celebration!

This year’s Honoree at the Gala will be famed singer/actress/advocate Dionne Warwick, who will be receiving the “Living Legend” Award. Past honorees and attendees have also included former Tour Manager to Elvis Presley – Joe Esposito, and Motown’s first A&R Executive, Singer/Songwriter and producer Mickey Stevenson!

annamaria reflection.jpg

The city has breathed new life, and taking center stage with poise beyond her years is 17yr old Annamaria!

The Singer/Songwriter has been honing her craft for as long as she can remember, saying “I always listened to music and wondered what my own words would sound like along with it. One day I finally sang and played along with a song on the radio…and I was hooked!

Working with Emmy Award-winning producer/singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eren Cannata (son of Billy Joel saxophonist Richie Cannata), she has been writing and producing music – all original, radio-ready, and all immediately viable. Pairing the two was not coincidental, but a canny move by the young talent’s manager – John Casale. “I wanted a producer who’d be sensitive to Annamaria’s music and serve it well. Richie was the one, his experience and taste shows in every note.” Adds Cannata, “Eren and Annamaria have worked so well together. She’s the most prolific young artist we have worked with in years. She is on her way to great success in this industry!”.

With her latest release “Affection”, she’s begun sending out to the world her own brand of fresh new R&B and Soul laden pop music with a distinctly powerful vocal edge. “Kiss me, love me, like no one’s in the room // You miss me, you want me, then show me you do // Need your love and attention, all your affection” sings Annamaria in the sleek and passionate track the brings her smooth vocal tones to the forefront over a subtle yet powerful backing track.

Though she lists her favorite artists as Tori Kelly, Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, Demi Lovato, and Christina Aguilera – her own music remains truly original. And with a full record release imminent along with groundwork being laid for her first tour, it won’t be long until Annamaria’s music is everywhere.

Now, as she gets ready to head to one of the biggest GRAMMY® Week events in NYC and continue connecting with the Music Industry’s best and brightest at the 4th Annual Soirée at B.B. King Blues Club, there seems to be a lot more in store for her as 2018 progresses.
