Two Hamptons favorites for St. Patrick's Day

5. Celebrity DJs

DJ Theo is getting the party started at the Neptune Beach Club in Quogue. Theo (aka Theo Pisani) is a native Long Islander who has received international recognition with his “Nervous Nitelife: Summer Clubbing” releases – yet he keeps many of his live mixing sessions in Nassau and Suffolk counties (he is the resident DJ of Neptune). Many other celebrity DJs came to the Island in 2011, such as Tiesto, Danny Krivit and Paul Oakenfold -- to name a few. (May 28, 2011)

Come the summer, catching big stars, DJs and shows in the Hamptons is pretty easy to achieve -- but during the colder months, not so much.

Most of the major names follow the lead of the commuters, jet set and warm-weather residents to and from the East End -- meaning while the fall events tend to dwindle in scope and frequency, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any loyal acts who stick it out when the winter chill rules the area.

One who does is New Life Crisis. The band has strong credentials -- as some of their music ("Daylight," "Dirty Little Girl," "Breaking") has achieved international attention via TV soundtracks, cover version and remixes. However, with band members hailing from Long Island (vocals: Paul Mahos/ Mineola, lead guitar: Jeff Allegue/ Bayport), NLC can be found playing locally year-round -- with an especially solid Hamptons presence.

Another is Theo Pisani (aka “DJ Theo”). Although Theo is easily found working the Manhattan circuit during any given week, and has some worldwide acclaim due to his “Summer Clubbing” mixes (on Nervous Records), he is best-known as the long-time resident DJ at Neptune’s in East Quogue. Furthermore, while most selectors of his stature only spin in the Hamptons from May-September, Theo will occasionally appear at 75 Main in Southampton as part of the restaurant/lounge’s ongoing successful off-season club sessions.

However, while NLC and Theo are accessible all year near Montauk Highway, the acts aren’t often (if ever) found working the same night and the same place. But on Saturday, March 17, both will be performing at the St. Patrick’s Day party at Agave’s Tequila & Rum Bar in Westhampton Beach.

The bash has Theo (along with DJs Relevant and Gene Drepan) spinning in the main room, while New Life Crisis performs upstairs (along with DJ Soco). Doors open at 5 p.m. for dining, with the nightlife entertainment kicking in sometime after 7 p.m.
