There's an old saying that you have to go 80 miles or more to find an expert; which simply means that anything near you could not be good enough. An example would be the feeling that you need to travel into New York City for great restaurants and quality entertainment. The simply fact of the matter is we are surrounded by great talent but the problem is most people will not take the chance to buy a ticket for unknown talent. Many Long Islanders will not go to bars, restaurants and barns to see these artists perform. As a result, this talent is grossly underappreciated. A great many are every bit as good and talented as the artists IMAC has featured on it stage for years.

To that end, IMAC is launching a series titled Local Artist Deserving Wider Recognition. 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.

The series continues with singer/ songwriters: JEN CHAPIN and MARCI GELLER.

Jen Chapin is a New York-based singer-songwriter on the rise. She has earned the highest praise from sources as diverse as National Public Radio's All Things Considered, People Magazine, The Today Show, and Entertainment Weekly. Chapin reaches out to her listeners with an honesty and directness seldom heard in even the best pop songwriting, while from the stage she captivates her audiences. Jen has played listening rooms, theaters and outdoor stages across the country, while also sharing the stage with (and wowing the audiences of) music greats like Smokey Robinson, Bruce Hornsby and the Neville Brothers. All the while, Jen has worked hard to interweave her musical and political passions. She chairs the Board of Directors of WHY (World Hunger Year)—an activist organization co-founded by her father, the late singer-songwriter Harry Chapin.

Marci Geller's upbeat demeanor off-stage often surprises her fans. Her songs reveal a life streaked with conflicting tales of intimacy, alienation and survival, yet her tenacity remains unshaken. With a list of credits that would stand taller than the petite singer, she boasts a lofty resume. She performed her original song We Carry On on Live! With Regis, has toured internationally as an opening act and back-up vocalist for legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, her music can be heard on various television and cable shows and was voted one of the Top 10 Best Singer/ Songwriters.
