Are you a lover of original music?
If so, check out the last installment of this season’s “Live in the Lobby,” an original music series, Thursday night at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The performance features KGB – a four-piece band that fuses rock, funk and jazz together on guitar, keyboard, drums, bass and with vocals. The group draws on the inspiration of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder and Lionel Richie, to name a few.
“They’re some of the best musicians in Long Island,” says Christopher Capobianco, curator of “Live in the Lobby” and member of the theater’s board of directors. “They have a lot of fans in Patchogue. It’s going to be a great night. Seating is limited. Get there early!”
Opening for KGB is quartet Rabbits in Raincoats. Their performance features acoustic guitar, bass, French horn and vocals.
“Anytime someone brings a group where French horn is the lead instrument and they write they write their own songs, I think it’s worth checking out,” Capobianco says.
Both groups round out the sixth season of “Live in the Lobby,” which creates an intimate concert experience (seating room for 50 people and standing room for another 50) in the Art Deco lobby of the theater.
A variety of jazz, bluegrass, R&B, rock and folk acts have performed at the venue, which will begin its seventh season in the fall.
“There aren’t a lot of venues on Long Island that feature original music,” Capobianco says. “What some audience members have come to learn is that the talent level in Long Island for original music is very high.”
