Rocky Point, NY – August 23rd, 2013 – On Tuesday, August 20th, thousands of local residents flocked to St. Anthony’s Church in Rocky Point to see Big Shot, the Ultimate Billy Joel Tribute Band. Audience members of all ages enjoyed hits such as “Piano Man”, “My Life”, and “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant”. Legislator Anker recognized lead singer Mike DelGuidice for his community activism, participating in benefits for Superstorm Sandy relief, autism, and cancer.
“Music has the amazing ability to unify people of all different ages and backgrounds,” said Legislator Anker. “I’m grateful to work with the Rocky Point VFW and Mike DelGuidice and his band, who are ‘instrumental’ in in bringing the community together.”
The final performance of the Summer Concert Series will take place at St. Anthony’s Church on Tuesday, August 27th at 7pm. Due to inclement weather on earlier dates, Strawberry Fields and Street Fighter will both perform for a night of 60s and 70s classics made famous by the Beatles and Rolling Stones. Attendees are asked to bring nonperishable food items for the Long Island Cares food pantry. For more information, please contact Legislator Anker’s office at 631-854-1600.
