Summer Concert Series Swings into Smithtown

Press Releases

Free concerts will occur during July and August.

Smithtown, NY - July 21, 2014 - Once again, the Dennis Cannataro Family Summer Concert Series is back in downtown Smithtown where families and friends gather and enjoy the comradery and music of their favorite tribute bands. “The shows provide a wonderful opportunity for everyone to enjoy downtown Smithtown, support our local restaurants and businesses and listen to great music,” said Legislator Robert Trotta.
 
Organized by the Friends of the Smithtown Library, these concerts were made possible by a county grant from the Office of Economic Development obtained by former Suffolk County Legislator Lynne C. Nowick, now a Smithtown Town Councilwoman. The new Suffolk County Legislator, Robert Trotta, has told the concert goers that he will make every effort to get the money for the Friends of the Smithtown Library to continue their free concerts. 
 
The concerts are held every Thursday evening during the month of July through August 14 at 8pm on the front lawn of the Smithtown Library at the intersection of Middle Country Road and North County Road. Bring a chair or a blanket for seating.
