Strong Showing for Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert

Local musicians help raise money for hurricane victims on Saturday night.

Over 200 people turned out for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert, Art Show, and Silent Auction at LTV Studios in Wainscott on Saturday night. More than a dozen musicians along with South Fork elected officials and others organized the event to help raise money for Long Island victims of the Hurricane. County Legislator Jay Schneiderman said, "Every penny will go to the relief."

There will be eight beneficiaries, according to Schneiderman; Four local governments (the Village of East Hampton, the Town of East Hampton, the Town of Southampton, and the Town of Riverhead) will designate a not-for-profit that is working on relief efforts. The other four charities will be the Long Island Red Cross the Salvation Army of Long Island, Island Harvest, and Long Island Cares.

Some of the local musicians who each performed a 10-minute set included Gene Casey (of the Lone Sharks), Mick Hargreaves, Inda Eaton, Caroline Doctorow, The Thunderbird Sisters, Alfredo Merat and Dylan Janet Collins.

WPPB's Bonnie Grice along with Schneiderman served as hosts for the evening.

Makes me love my hometown even more. What an amazing event this was. Joe Delia & Thieves (Klyph Black, Randolph Hudson, James Benard, Mick Hargreaves, Walter Noller) special guest Inda Eaton and Thievettes (Cynthia Daniels and me) were thrilled to be a part of it.

It was a great event and fun was had by all. We are lucky to have so many great local musicians and more so for their generosity. We should get out more often to see their performances at local venues throughout the year.
