Rock the House for Angela’s House

The first ever concert in benefit of the Hauppauge-based non-profit Angela’s House was held this past Sunday, June 3rd. The event, entitled “Rock the House,” was held at Middle Country Beer Garden at 1702 Middle Country Road in Centereach. The main event will ran from 1:00 pm thru 8:00.

The night was put together by Long Island’s growing #1 Internet radio station, iradiouse.com. Producer and DJ, Vincent Cashin, hosted the event. Cashin has a personal relationship with the non-profit, as the foundation assisted him and his family with their son Zachary. Cashin’s son unfortunately passed away in August 2009 at the age of 12. “Since I got into Internet radio and started meeting local talent, I started thinking. And I saw what Bob was doing with Angela’s House and I thought ‘let me give something back,’” stated Cashin.

The bands that rocked out through the night include Bottoms Up, Joe Bayer Band, Big Hair Daze, Youth Be Told, I Ignite, Electric Mayhem, and 50 miles 2 frequency. Cashin stated that the interest to take part of the concert was extraordinary, many of the bands immediately jumped on, and ones that couldn’t attend were disappointed. “I’ve gotten a great reception from the bands, who are very, very generous with their time and effort,” said Cashin.

WRCN also took part with Bill Powers co-hosting. Cashin has no problem to bring in another station to take part of the event, because “in the end, it’s about Angela’s House.” WRCN has taken part and hosted events in the past for Angela’s house.

Even though the weather were threatening at point, people filtered throughout the day. Kids danced around the restaurant while bands performed or ran outside to the patio to enjoy to large inflatable bounce house. Adults found seats around the bar and watched the bands then games during intermission.  Attendees were served hero sandwhiches, potato salad, cole saw, and baked ziti and had the opportunity to take part in raffles and Chinese auctions throughout the night.

Overall, the afternoon was a great success for the first rock concert to benefit Angela’s House!

Showtime: 8pm. Tickets go on sale March 2 @ 10am.  DeYoung showcases the Greatest Hits spanning the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s performed live with Dennis and his six member band. The set includes all eight Top 10 hits including LADY, BABE, COME SAIL AWAY, TOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS plus Classic Rock Anthems GRAND ILLUSION, RENEGADE, BLUE COLLAR MAN, SUITE MADAME BLUE, ROCKIN THE PARADISE and many more. All the hits and memories in one unforgettable evening.  Dennis is a founding member of Styx. He wrote and sang lead on seven of the band’s eight Top 10 hits. He is a legendary singer, songwriter, keyboardist, composer and record producer with a career spanning over 40 years. His voice is one of the most recognizable in the music world today and continues to inspire new generations of fans.  In September 2002, WTTW Chicago PBS taped DeYoung performing with his rock band, a full symphony orchestra and The Chicago Children’s Choir for PBS’ Soundstage. This Soundstage pledge program is currently airing nationwide on PBS stations. DeYoung followed this PBS performance by recording his live symphony orchestra concert in April 2003 at the historic Chicago Theatre. The PBS DVD and double live concert CD are available at www.dennisdeyoung.com.  DeYoung and film composer Alan Silvestri rearranged and re-orchestrated “Grand Illusion” for symphony orchestra and rock band, which closes the IMAX film Siegfried and Roy: The Magic Box.

In 1999, Universal Hippo Records released a compilation of DeYoung’s solo albums in their Ultimate Collection series, featuring music from “Desert Moon”, “Back to the World” and “Boomchild”.   Recently, DeYoung wrote and recorded a song for his wife Suzanne’s soon to be published book A Love Foretold.

 Sully Erna, best known as singer and main songwriter of acclaimed rock band Godsmack, is branching out from his rock roots this year with his debut solo album, Avalon.

Since then, Sully Erna has reaped a myriad of accolades, including several industry records such as; *Godsmack’s latest release, titled The Oracle, debuted at #1 in the U.S., making it the band’s 3rd consecutive #1 debut album on the Billboard 200 charts (Faceless-2003, GodsmackIV-2006 & The Oracle-2010) *Godsmack’s latest single, “Cryin’ Like a Bitch,” recently positioned itself at #1 for 9 weeks straight, and is the group’s sixth #1 track to land on Active Rock radio charts, as well as the band’s 18th Top 10 single overall - more than any other band in Active Rock history. *With Godsmack, Erna has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide, was awarded “Rock Artist of the Year” at the Billboard Music Awards and has received four (4) Grammy nominations. *Godsmack’s self-titled 1998 debut went quadruple-platinum, while five of the band’s albums and EPs have achieved gold or platinum status in the U.S. and Canada. Sully Erna’s latest masterpiece, Avalon, features an array of eclectic compositions unlike anything he has ever written in the past, an epic body of work that has taken him over 2 years to compose, record and finally release, utilizing the hypnotic sounds of tribal rhythms, melodic pianos and cellos, and haunting vocals. Avalon also features the accompanying vocals of Lisa Guyer, as well as the hand percussion of Niall Gregory from renowned band Dead Can Dance.

Fuel. Aptly named for the Friday night January 27th show at the Paramount in Huntington NY. Whatever resentment that might have built up on the North Shore of Long Island from a relatively late start was erased after only the first few guitar chords of “Last Time”, the song that opened the show as it did Fuel’s “Something Like Human” CD. From there the audience danced, sang, and pumped their fists in the palm of lead singer Bret Scallions’ hand. Fuel hit the mainstream back in 1998 although you couldn’t make a first time listener believe any of the seventeen songs played were up to fourteen years old. “Sunburn”, an audience favorite, echoed off The Paramount’s walls like a newborn’s first scream. “Jesus or a Gun” held as much relevance on January 27th 2012 as it did when it was released as a single back in 1999. By the eleventh song in the audience was exhausted by the onslaught of energy, just as Brett Scallions was getting warmed up. It was no secret what song was coming when Scallions asked if they’d like to sing but that didn’t prevent the explosion of noise that shook The Paramount’s walls as the opening chords of “Bad Day” echoed through the air. As if it were “Free Bird”, Scallions held the microphone outstretched as the audience temporarily took his job in a love fest that was reciprocated back and forth throughout the song’s entire three and a half minutes. The song that brought Fuel to the dance followed as “Shimmer” took the audience to a whole new level. By the time the final notes of “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” wrapped up, The Paramount was radiating. Scallions looked ecstatic to be back on Long Island and the crowd was all too happy to accept Fuel in their hometown.
