East Meadow, NY - August 14, 2014 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano in association with Brian Rosenberg present “Wingsteen” a tribute to Bruce Springsteen by Tramps Like Us, and a Tribute to McCartney and Wings by The Mystic at Eisenhower Park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre on Saturday, August 16th.

Tramps Like Us brings more than 2 decades of road-tested musicianship that have won this band the hard-earned distinction of the planet’s most revered Bruce Springsteen Tribute band. The group captures the classic Springsteen sound, and remains true to the spirit and energy of the music, while delivering them with the passion and conviction of the Boss.
The Mystic is one of the tri-state area’s best live cover bands. This band covers each song with such authenticity and feeling that fans and guests are left with lasting impressions of great music. Each of the band’s eight talented members contributes to the band's unique persona and captivating style.
