August 4th @ 8:30pm
Who says that things don’t get better with age? IMAC
Theater is thrilled to announce our local artist series
LONG ISLAND’S OWN (formerly known as Local Artist
Deserving Wider Recognition) has a new host: WFUV’s
Don’t let the name change fool you!
LONG ISLAND’S OWN still offers everything that Local
Artist Deserving Wider Recognition did but without the tongue
- twister of a name. As the host of LONG ISLAND’S
OWN, WFUV radio personality JOHN PLATT continues to be a
driving force behind the support and promotion of local
talent. Thanks to a generous grant and tremendous support
from the Town of Huntington, IMAC’s quarterly series
will take a genre such as singer/songwriter, blues, jazz,
folk or dance and will offer a sampling of two to three
artists in an evening’s performance. The series is
meant to challenge Long Island audiences to take a chance,
have their horizons expanded and experience a pleasant surprise
that they might not have considered in the past.
Our next LONG ISLAND’S OWN will be
on Thursday August 4th at 8:30pm at the
Chapin Rainbow Stage in Hecksher Park and features guitarists
Steve Adelson and Dean Brown. This performance
is a free, outdoor concert brought to you by The Huntington
Arts Council and IMAC Theater.
As a master of the 12 string Chapman Stick,
Steve Adelson and his band-mates create a new dimension
to live entertainment exploring Latin and cool jazz originals,
as well as covers of some of Steve’s favorites including
Pat Metheny, Sting, Santana and even Jimi Hendrix. Dean
Brown has been a hard working musician since the late 70’s.
He was an original member of Vital Information, the ground
breaking group led by the drummer icon, Steve Smith. He’s
performed with the likes of Billy Cobham, sax star David
Sanborn, bassist Marcus Miller, Kirk Whalum, Bill Evans,
singer Roberta Flack, keyboardist George Duke as well as
touring with his own group.
Tickets for this performance are FREE.
