Bethpage Federal Credit union Downtown Sounds Concert Series

Richie Cannata, Jeff Regan Bands to Perform, Friday, July 13

Glen Cove, NY – The Richie Cannata and Jeff Regan Bands will take center stage at

the Bethpage Federal Credit Union Downtown Sounds Concert Series on Friday, July 13th, at Glen Cove City Square.

Just back from a stint with the Beach Boys, saxophonist Cannata has worked with an A-list of musical performers, but he is perhaps best know for his work with Billy Joel and his memorable solos on any number of Joel songs, including “New York State of Mind,” and other tracks on the wildly successful album, “The Stranger, ” recorded for Columbia Records.

Aside from his prowess on sax, Cannata is chief executive of Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, which has produced gold and platinum records for a range of artists, among them Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion and LL Cool Jay, to name just a few.

The Jeff Regan Band is a mixture of blues, rock, Motown and pop with melodic and soulful vocal melodies. The band has performed at numerous venues large and small, among the most recent: Great South Bay Music Festival, Jones Beach Bandshell, Cedar Beach Blues Festival, Sayville Summer Fest, Captree State Harvest Fest, The Crazy Donkey, The Nutty Irishman and Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The free concerts are open air, at the Glen Cove Village Square, intersection of Glen and Bridge Streets.  Shows begin at 7:00 PM. There is ample free parking in adjacent indoor and outdoor parking lots. Bringing a lawn chair is highly suggested. Rain location is at the Wunsch Arts Center, Robert M. Finley Middle School, 1 Forest Avenue, Glen Cove.

The Bethpage Federal Credit Union Downtown Sounds Concert Series is presented by the City of Glen Cove and the Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District.  In addition to the title sponsor, this year’s sponsors include:  National Grid, American Community Bank, Men On The Move, Kimco Realty, RXR-Glen Isle Partners, The Downtown Café, The Glen Cove Printery, Linchitz Medical Wellness, Cedar Creek American Bar & Grill, Tappo Ristorante Italiano, The Glen Cove Mansion, Asian Fusion Restaurant, Sahn Ward Coschignano & Baker, and Omega Precious Metals.

GLEN COVE DOWNTOWN BID COMMISSIONS NEW BOTANICAL DESIGN AND IRRIGATION SYSTEM

Glen Cove, N.Y. - The Glen Cove Business Improvement District donated the sprinkler system at the Brewster Street garage, which has been installed by Grennan Irrigation Inc., in part with a project to re-landscape and beautify the area. “This was an important project for the BID as it is a heavy traffic area, and we wanted to make it look nicer for those driving and walking by”, said Brian Mercadante, Co-Chair of the BID Capital Improvements Committee. While the sprinkler systems were being installed, Cabo Landscaping Inc. was working on a new landscaping design that consists of hydrangeas, junipers, white pine, and many other botanical arrangements along the Brewster Street Garage.
 “For many years, the BID has been denied a sprinkler system due to a lack of a water source, but after much determination, the current administration finally approved of the sprinkler system and now the BID can get back to work revitalizing the area”, said Patricia Holman, Executive Director of the Glen Cove Downtown BID.  The Downtown BID has planted many gardens throughout the walkways and has funded the maintenance of these gardens. Throughout the seasons, the BID will be planting new grass seeds and different flowers for the fall, summer, and spring. “Now that the water is in, let’s start making it beautiful”, said Brian Mercadante.

New art in Downtown

The Glen Cove Downtown BID is super excited about the art that is falling in Glen Cove from the skies. It is said that an anonymous donor has donated these wonderful pieces of art. We first noticed them in front of the library, and then in a walkway, but they are said to be all over Glen Cove now. Can you find them all?
