East Meadow, NY - July 13, 2015 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano has announced that Baldwin-native Taylor Dayne and special guest Alisha will perform at Eisenhower Park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre, located in East Meadow, on Saturday, July 18th. The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.
Two of the best 80’s hit makers stronger than ever live in concert at Eisenhower Park. Taylor Dayne stands out as one of music’s most dynamic artists of all time. Her unique vocal style has earned her numerous best-selling gold and platinum albums, which produced seventeen Top 20 singles, among them number one hits such as “Tell It To My Heart,” “Love Will Lead You Back” and “Prove Your Love To Me.” During the course of her career, Taylor has sold more than 75 million albums and singles worldwide, garnered three GRAMMY nominations and appeared in many film, television, and Broadway stage roles such as Elton John’s, Aida.
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.
