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.

Passage: Paintings of Urban Life
A Solo Show of Recent Works by Manu Saluja

November 5 - December 6, 2016
Artist from the North Shore Exhibits Vibrant Paintings of Urban Life                     
 Hersh Fine Art, of the Long Island Academy of Fine Art, is pleased to be exhibiting a solo show of recent paintings by museum-exhibited artist Manu Saluja.Passage: Paintings of Urban Life will be on view from November 5 -  December 6, 2016.
An opening reception will be held on November 5th from 6-8pm.  Hersh Fine Art- 14A Glen St., (516) 590-4324
Saluja’s current work depicts fleeting moments from her commute to and from Manhattan. The oil paintings are about the claustrophobic crowds, corroded steel and
soiled walls she encounters each day in New York City’s underground subway. Rather than make the work feel as forlorn, she chooses to paint the beauty and resilience she
sees in these ordinary moments and objects with visual excitement.
The work ranges from portraits to combinations of abstraction and realism. Saluja employs a variety of dynamic brushwork, from loose, chromatic drips and thick strokes to subdued and refined expressions of light over form. Some of her work, such as Red I, and Green I lean more towards the abstract. At first glance one is struck by a kaleidoscope of color and complex textures and, at closer view, sees that they are looking at torn layers of oxidized, rusted paint on steel girders. In work such as Transfer, Saluja paints light as it flows over soiled, cracked walls to reveal subtle hues and dramatic shadows with the same grace it would a garden or Cathedral.
