East Meadow, NY - August 18, 2014 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today that Nassau County will host CBS FM’s Saturday in the Park featuring KC and the Sunshine Band at Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park on Saturday, August 23rd. The show, sponsored by CBS FM 101.1, will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.
Having 15 current members and over 100 million records sold, the band is sure to put on a great show. On just what makes a KC show so great, Casey says, “We have a great time, if you wanna come out and have a good evening, a lot of fun, great music, good memories, or create some new memories it’s the place to be.” With an upcoming album in the works featuring new music as well as some classics from the past, fans can expect to hear some of the following classics: ‘Stand By Me,’ ‘Bring it On Home,’ an old Allman Brothers song called ‘Dreams,’ ‘You Really Got Me,’ by the Kinks and ‘Blown In The Wind,’ by Bob Dylan.
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.
