East Meadow, NY - June 23, 2016 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano has announced that Tramps Like Us will kick off Independence Day Weekend at Eisenhower Park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre on Friday, July 1st. The concert will begin at 8:00 p.m. Admission is free.
Tramps Like Us brings more than 25 years of road-tested musicianship that have won this band the hard-earned distinction of the planet’s most revered Bruce Springsteen Tribute band. Given high praise by dozens of publications, radio stations, music industry personal, and the only tribute band to be endorsed by members of “The Springsteen Camp” such as former producer and manager Mike Appel and the official Springsteen Radio Station: E Street Radio/Sirius XM. 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.
Much of the programming at the Lakeside Theatre is made possible through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which are proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received more than ten million dollars from the Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which also has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
