What is the "Coffee, Cake, and Concert", you might ask? It's a combination of a night at a coffee house and a night at a concert hall. Guests will enjoy baked goods and pastries and hot drinks, as well as live acoustic music performed by local musicians. Acts like; Angelique D'Alessandro with Celia Bittman and Jason Iskenderian as "Think Outside the Bach", Members of "Baked Goods", Jacob Derwin, and Kevin Burke of "No Good News" have already been booked to perform, with more acts being added to the list as the event approaches! The Coffee, Cake, and Concert will be from 7 PM to 9 PM on Saturday, April 27th. Admission is only $5 for people 18 years-old and under, and $7 for anyone older than 18. "It's a Saturday night! Why waste $10 on a movie you're not even going to like if you can spend less to have an awesome night listening to music, eating dessert, hanging out with friends and raising money for cancer research!" said Melissa Robinson, a member of both Footprints for a Cause and BATY. Don't miss out on an incredible event. The more people who come, the better it will be!

Eveline & Carol were a two-part harmony duet performed around Long Island during the 80's and 90's, singing medleys and tunes from the pop and country genres. In 2000 they stopped playing music together, but have recently gotten back together and released a new medley which they have recorded and performed publicly in December of 2012, called "I Believe/Impossible Dream". After over a decade, Eveline & Carol are back on the local airways with their voices and lovely arrangements. Eveline Marcello is still living in West Hempstead, playing her guitar and arranging the medleys and music when she isn't being a professional In-Home Photographer. Carol DeSimone is now residing in Florida, still performing for local events. This upcoming St. Patty's Day, be sure to tune in to WHLI Radio to listen to "Danny Boy/Bring Him Home", a medley of there's dedicated to Eveline's late nephew, Danny Briscoe, who passed away from cancer in the 90's. Congrats to Eveline & Carol on their return to the music scene!

“This is the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet”
— The New York Times
GARDEN CITY, NY, February 2013—In the last 15 years, Lúnasa has become one of the most sought after bands in Celtic music, all the while redefining the genre with an eclectic mix of arrangements and instruments. Named “the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet” by the New York Times, Lúnasa will be making their Long Island debut by performing in the Concert Hall at the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) on Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. The AUPAC is located at 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY. This is their only Long Island performance – and is just in time to get you in the mood for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.
Lúnasa are known world-wide as one of the finest Irish instrumental bands of recent times. Having formed over 15 years ago, they tour constantly and have performed in venues such as The Hollywood Bowl, the Sydney Opera House in Australia and have been invited to the White House. In 2012, they performed to a sold-out crowd at the National Concert Hall in Dublin; this performance has been recorded and will be released later this year.
Just recently, Kevin Crawford who plays flutes and whistles for the band was named male musician of the year by Live Ireland, an Irish internet radio and television source based out of Dublin. The band also features Seán Smith on fiddles and whistles, Trevor Hutchinson on stand-up bass, local musician Cillian Vallely (from Queens) plays the uilleann pipes and whistles, while recent addition, Ed Boyd, is one of European folk music’s most in-demand guitarists. Samples of their music and more on the band can be found at lunasa.ie.
