Port Jefferson Station, N.Y.- Wednesday, August 9, 2017, Councilwoman Cartright, with members of the Northern Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce and Suffolk Legislator Kara Hahn, reveled with residents as the sun set at the final show of the Free Summer Concert Series. The event was held at what is affectionately referred to as, the ‘Train Car Park’ behind the Northern Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce visitor center. The field is located at the intersection of Rose Lane, Canal Road, NYS Routes 112 and 347. The music drew lots of attention and a lively mix of old and young.

The show began with the Stony Brook University Instrument Petting Zoo for the littlest revelers-an inspiring interactive music education program where children learned and ‘played’ with musicians and their musical instruments. The evening culminated in the enlivened performance by The HooDoo Loungers and their New Orleans style swing and Zydeco.

“The crowd was on their feet and everyone was so glad to be at the free concert,” stated Councilwoman Cartright. “It was all possible thanks to the participation and support of the community. Special thanks to the Northern Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce, the New York State D.O.T. for the use of this fabulous space, Suffolk Legislator Kara Hahn and staff, the Brookhaven Town Parks Commissioner Eddie Morris and staff, Commissioner Matt Miner of Recycling and Sustainable Materials Management and of course the musical artists!” she added.

The 2017 line up included The School of Rock, the Acoustic Maniacs-the Pete and Joe Show, The Hackensack Men & the Trenton Horns, The Three Village Chamber Players, The Paige Patterson Quartet, Blue Bayou a Tribute to Linda Ronstadt, Stony Brook University’s Instrument Petting Zoo and The HooDoo Loungers. Additionally, help with our salute to the flag and national anthem came by way of Port Jefferson Station residents Will Dzvonar, Siara Torres, Casey Nevins and Michelle Miller.
