New singer/songwriter showcase and open mic at page one restaurant

Third Thursday of Every Month, Beginning April 19th

A Singer/Songwriter Showcase & Open Mic, will debut Thursday, April 18th, at Page One Restaurant, 90 School St. in Glen Cove, and continue the third Thursday of every month thereafter. 
     The Showcase is a modification of the Open Mic that has been a fixture at Page One, every Thursday evening, since February 2011.
“We have had so many wonderful singer/songwriters perform at the Open Mic, we wanted to go with a concept that would provide a more in-depth opportunity to showcase the material of these fine performers, while at the same time providing a bit of background on the creative process that brings a song to life,” said Tony Tedeschi, who has been hosting the Open Mic and will continue on as host of the new format.  

“We will feature three performers, each Showcase, in a round-robin format,” Tedeschi said.  “Each performer will give a short explanation of how a song was created, then perform the song.  The spotlight will then shift to the next performer and then the third.  The performers will then go around again, for three more songs each.  After the featured performers, the mic will be open to other performers who sign up to play that evening.  Featured performances will begin at 8.”

Performers at the April 18th kick off will be:

Singer/songwriter Lou Coppola, whose debut album, “Story 7,” is a soul-searching personal experience that has an immediate connection with his audience.
With his smooth soulful voice and pop-rock rhythms, he weaves a powerful statement with every song.  Lou’s street-wise sensibility is what gives his story-telling its special touch.

Long Island singer/songwriter Suzanne Ernst infuses her 1960s folk-influenced music with spirituality and poetry.  Her lyrics reflect her own brand of humor, as she invites the listener to ponder their possible significance. Suzanne’s music represents a search for meaning in the mundane and spiritual aspects of her own life, and the lives of those around her.
Ernie Norris draws from a number of musical influences.  His brand of acoustic rock takes inspiration from his heroes – Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Randy Newman, Eric Clapton and, of course, The Beatles – but winds up going entirely its own way.  He’s currently performing his originals to pre-recorded backing tracks under the name, “Ernie and the Machine.”

Page One Chef Jeanine DiMenna has created a special menu for Showcase night.  Popular holdovers from the former Open Mic night menu like fish ‘n chips, sesame chicken, soups and salads will remain.   In addition, there will be exciting new entrees, including wraps with lamb souvlaki or pork, a bowl of mussels, and an array of burger combos with blue cheese, hot sauce, three onion sautés, as well as off-menu specials.  Entrees will range in price for $5-$15.  

“Great music, great food, great atmosphere, great staff at a great restaurant,” Tedeschi says, “make a point to mark your calendars each month.”

Upcoming Events

The streets of downtown filled with costumed creatures, as sculptured pumpkins overlooked the goings-on in Village Square on Saturday, October 25; the Glen Cove Downtown BID’s annual Halloween Parade turned School and Glen Streets into trick-or-treat central.
The day started with the Regency at Glen Cove’s thrilling Spooky Story Hour; marchers lined up just before 1PM to follow a float decorated by volunteers from the Glen Cove High School DECA Club through downtown, then visited welcoming merchants for trick-or-treat goodies.  
    The Maniac Pumpkin Carvers of Brooklyn made their first-ever appearance in Glen Cove; carver Chris (Maniac) Soria worked throughout the afternoon to produce two intricately detailed pumpkins with grimacing faces.
    The Fun Bus mobile gym kept kids sliding, climbing and running for multiple trips through its interior, while game tables featured Halloween fun such as “Dizzy Mummy”, “Vampire (marshmallow) Bite” and “Spider Ring Toss”.
Congratulations to Costume Contest winners “Pikachu” Logan Piriyatamwong, “Albert Einstein” Aurora (Rory) Seery, and “Autumn Princess” Rachel Solomon! We would like to thank our judges, Mary Cooper of the Downtown BID Board of Directors and DECA Clubmembers Sky Lewis, Kiyona Joseph, Sirina Joshi, and Madeline Schlesinger for their services.
