Talking about music is like dancing about architecture

October 18, 2013

Never the less…

Come and listen to the music and join the discussion, Thursday November  14, 7pm, at the Dix Hills building.

Rich Sobocinski and Lanny Sichel will be playing some songs for us and discussing pre-Beatles, Beatles, and post-Beatles music and how they all relate. As members of several bands (The Berrys, Playback, King Penguin to name a few) they have been performing on and off Long Island longer than any of us care to remember. They’ve played in some of the best (and worst) bars and clubs including CBGBs. Their bands have played for charities and they even played on a Lighthouse! They made multiple appearances on The Uncle Floyd show. And as a member King Penguin, Lanny can be heard on several albums on Fruits de Mer Records.
