Life on Long Island
Before this past weekend, there had been a flier posted to the Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall’s website concerning an upcoming fundraiser set for April 20 -- an event titled “Back to the Beach” that was to donate all gathered proceeds to certain communities impacted by superstorm Sandy (specifically Breezy Point, Roxbury and Rockaway Point).
Tickets were $60, and included an open bar, food,...Read more »
With Long Island seeing above-average temperatures lately (including record-setting heat on April 9), it would be understandable if the party people that regularly summer in the Hamptons were thinking of getting started early in 2013, before the standard Memorial Day weekend kickoff. So for anyone who has decided to make that move, an event worth consideration could be the Bay Street Theater's “Spring...Read more »
Throughout Monday, April 1, posts on the McFadden's Rockville Centre Facebook page kept mentioning a “farewell tour,” noting how there are only a limited number of remaining Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays before the bar would be closing its doors for good…which all seemed to be a joke, as this announcement was synchronous with April Fools' Day.
But as it turns out, these edicts were not...Read more »
Finding someone special is never an easy feat; whether you search online, roam the clubs or hope your friends can recommend someone decent to date, the hunt can often be challenging…as in really challenging.

In actuality, only one original member of the group – MC Freedom Williams – will be onstage, as Williams continues to perform under the group’s appellation....Read more »
Many celebrity DJs have come to Long Island to spin, but there are few – if any – that perform like DJ Bl3nd.
Without question LI has seen some of the biggest and most beloved mixers from the international dance music scene arrive to ply their trade -- such as Tiësto, Paul Oakenfold and Jonathan Peters, just to name a few – and while these people are often upbeat and move to the music as they...Read more »
In the creation of dance music, DJs and producers are the main forces behind the beat, which is what gets one and all on the dance floor. But when it comes to the part where we sing along, it’s almost always about the voice.
While there are many successful dance tracks that are virtually free from lyrical accompaniment, the biggest hits are often those that feature the efforts of a singer...Read more »
If you have spent anytime surfing the Web or strolling through Facebook posts during the past few weeks, it is highly probable you have come across a “Harlem Shake” video … if not dozens.
For anyone who has yet to view one of these bits, a brief explanation of the phenomenon must begin with the music at its core. Produced by EDM artist “Baauer” (aka Harry Rodrigues), the “Harlem Shake” is...Read more »
With the departure of Westbury’s mega-venue GLO last year, Aura Light and Sound Suite in East Meadow has become the top spot for the nation’s biggest DJs to work when bringing beats to Long Island – and this week sees two of the club world’s major talents over a three-day stretch.
The first to deliver a dynamic session will be New Jersey-born Junior Sanchez, set to arrive on Thursday, Feb....Read more »
It’s a wise bet the average Long Islander won’t be venturing out for any reason during the impending blizzard – unofficially dubbed “Winter Storm Nemo” by The Weather Channel (and referred to as such on social media), not by the National Weather Service – but there are a number of late-night hangs in Nassau and Suffolk counties that have announced on Facebook that they are preparing to stay open,...Read more »
