You are cordially invited to a very special evening with GENE CASEY and the LONE SHARKS!
Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, Westhampton Beach, NY.
BOX OFFICE: 631 288 1500
“Like you’ve never heard them before” reads the copy on the website promoting March 25, 2017’s concert at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center (WHBPAC). And it’s true! Fans of Gene and the Lone Sharks have seen them at bars, beaches, dance halls and decks of various aquatic vehicles, as well as the occasional theater. The show at the marvelous PAC will indeed be a concert setting and the Sharks will be presenting a program that will feature not only the fine musicianship of an expanded version of the combo but the acclaimed original music of Gene Casey.
Joining Gene, Paul Scher (sax), Chris Ripley (drums), Tony Palumbo (bass), will be long time “mate” and one-time Shark, Stan Mitchell, on percussion, acclaimed back-up singer and rhythm guitarist Tricia Scotti (from Ronnie Spector’s touring group), and Andy Burton on piano/organ, the former Sharks keyboard man and currently on tour with Cyndi Lauper.
SPECIAL ADDED GUEST is the “Queen of the East End Music Scene” Nancy Atlas, who will sing a couple of tunes on this night-to-remember.
