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.
