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.

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.
Seven pies were demolished by our hungry Pie-Eating Contestants, with Raul Aguilar finishing the most pie in sixty seconds, no hands allowed!
The Glen Cove Downtown BID would like to thank the members of the Glen Cove DECA Club for their assistance, and our sponsors: Christina Mercurio DDS Pediatric Dentistry, The Downtown Café, and Starbucks, as well as our participating merchants.
