A New Place to Play

The Long Island Blues Society is working with  one of our sponsors, All Music inc. in Plainview, on a monthly jam (first one is this Friday, Dec. 6) at 100 Terminal Drive in Plainview.

It doesn't cost anything, just come down and play. It's a chance to meet new players, reconnect with old friends, try out a new song or lick or just hang out with a bunch of people that like music. It's an early start (5 pm) and runs 'tll we're done.

This will be a monthly thing  o let's try to kick it off with a bang!

You don't have to be a Blues Society member to play, so come on down and bring your friends.

Check the flyer above for info.

Hot Bands, Lotsa Toys

The Long Island Blues Society teamed up on Sunday, Dec. 1, with the NY Sportscene Children's Foundation for a toy drive in support of SASI, Specialized Autism Support and Information, at 89 North in Patchogue.

 Look at the picture on the right, it was a rousing success.

The crowd came out, There was food, there were raffles, there was SANATA! But for music fans the draw was four hot Long Island bands, namely  The Kane Daily Band; The Johnny Mac Band;  Sweet Suzi;; and Phil Varca & The SlamJammers.
