On Sunday, Aug. 20, Morgan Park Summer Music Festival will present Richie Cannata and the Lords of 52nd Street – the Music of Billy Joel. The free performance begins at 7:00 p.m. in Morgan Park.
One of LI’s top musical attractions returns to Morgan Park! Richie Cannata and the Lords of 52nd Street were an integral part of Billy Joel’s career. They collaborated closely with Billy, performing with him on recordings and on tour.
After a period of inactivity, Cannata and the Lords reunited, blowing away the sold-out crowd at The Space at Westbury. They have since toured regularly throughout the region before enthusiastic public and private audiences.
The ensemble’s members are Richie Cannata on sax and keys, Liberty DeVitto on drums, Russell Javors and Anthony Babino on guitar, Malcolm Gold on bass, Doug Kistner on keys and Dan Orlando on piano and vocals.
“Glen Cove’s exceptional talent is showcased when we welcome Richie Cannata and the Lords of 52nd Street to our stage. One of Long Island’s top musical attractions has traveled the globe sharing their immense talent and they will rock our stage this Sunday. We are expecting a strong turnout and encourage concertgoers to arrive early,” said the festival chairman, Tom Suozzi.
All concerts are held at Morgan Memorial Park in Glen Cove, overlooking the harbor at Germaine Street between Landing Road and McLoughlin Street. The free concerts begin at 7 pm.
The Title Sponsor for the 2023 season is The Terian Family and Rallye Motor Company. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the opening of the Rallye Motor Company’s first dealership in Glen Cove.
Since its founding, the Company has steadfastly manifested what it means to be a good corporate citizen and neighbor. The Terian Family and Rallye will ensure that the music will keep playing in the park for generations to come.
