Long Island Sounds Off 7/7/07

Yeah, I know this is related to the Al Gore thing. But the Democratic Party has spent so much time co-opting our issues it’s time we returned the favor.

My suggestions:

Our own Live Earth Concert to Stop Global Warming
and to Stop Broadwater

Listen to a song written by Jack Licitra from Jacks Waterfall, especially for this event. Click Here

On July 7, 2007, the Alliance for Climate Protection will hold the Live Earth series. Live Earth is a monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people to raise awareness about global warming. With 24 hours of music across 7 continents, and performances by more than 150 of the world’s top musicians, Live Earth will engage, connect, and inspire individuals, corporations and governments to takeaction to solve the climate crisis.

On Long Island we will be hosting a similar monumental event to join this global movement; however, our main objective is to protect Long Island. We are requesting your support as a fellow Long Islander, to attend our Stop Global Warming, Stop Broadwater concert to protect Long Island and the Long Island Sound on July 7, 2007 at the Brookhaven Ampitheater. What better way to celebrate and defend Long Island than through music?

Performing on 7/7/07 will be

Kerry Kearney Band

After Eileen Murphy, Frank Celenza & Charlie Wolfe joined the band, they started playing local gigs and worked on developing their own sound. By using a dobro, played Delta style, in an electric band, they managed to create unique grooves between the bass & drums.

They eventually worked their way up to touring with the Allman Brothers & Dickey Betts as well as being on stage with legends such as Leslie West & Warren Haynes.

In 2007, KKB is currently celebrating 10 years of musical accomplisments together & a new, much anticipated CD is planned to be released in July.

Voted “Long Island’s Best Blues Band,” The Kerry Kearney Band must be seen live… their dynamic energy is something you won’t ever forget!

Pop, blues, jazz, folk, gospel and global music all meet at The Waterfall, a place of healing and learning. Sometimes Jack performs solo and other times with a group, but there is always present a unique energy of inclusiveness. His great capacity for rhythmic and percussive adventures, his virtuosic piano explorations, and his heartfelt songs and storytelling come together in every captivating performance.

Paging Grace

 

There’s an excitement filling the clubs of New York that has not been felt or seen in a very long time. An emotionally charged band has surfaced in a period where so many musicians are struggling to find a sound entirely of their own. Paging Grace, the crowd-pleasing, Long Island foursome, have been winning over all of New York since their debut, and are now paging the rest of the world in hopes of doing the same.

Paging Grace’s songs are fresh –where both melody & lyrics connect with the listener. Drawing influences from bands like the Chilli Peppers, Matchbox Twenty, Pearl Jam, and Billy Joel, their blending of such diverse sounds helps them stand out and reach people of all ages. The songs are derived from lead singer & pianist Christopher Trentacoste’s past and gives you insight to a period of his life where he encountered much loss & a sense of isolation. It seems that fate had something to do with the formation of this band. After endless struggles to find equally motivated & talented musicians, Christopher decided to give an online music classified site a try, as luck would have it –so did guitarist Anthony Machiano & drummer Erik Reichstein.

Stacy Rock

As a songwriter, storyteller and classically trained pianist, Stacy has defined her own sound, leaning more towards The Beatles and Tom Waits than Tori Amos or Fiona Apple. From singing country bluegrass in Montana, folk in Chicago, to blues and rock & roll in Boston and pretty much everything as the resident piano bar player at The Monkey Bar in NYC, Stacy has finally found a way to tell her own stories in One Way Home, her debut album.

Raised in a remote part of Montana along the Assiniboine-Sioux Fort peck Reservation, Stacy witnessed the vastness and beauty of a harsh land and the enduring people that live in it. Her music tells the tales of the people she grew up with and the people she met on her journey from the buffalo pastures of home. Her songs, voice and piano weave sepia toned tales of human nature and it’s brave ability to be ugly.
One Way Home flips like an eleven chapter adult coloring book.

Wired

Every once in a while a band comes around that shakes things up just enough so people start to notice. The latest band to do just that is WIRED – a fierce, young act keeping the punk rock flame alive with an honest love for the rock component that is all too rare these days.

Wired’s sound has been honed into a tough, tuneful and fresh batch of hook filled songs. With a signature style of dual guitar assault with sexy riffs, infectious melodies and driving beats. “Your First Time” is a great snapshot of their lives and is embraced by their fans as a soundtrack to their lives.

Wired’s music is a combination of pop, punk, and classic rock. It’s no frills rock with choruses that stick and lines that the fans sing along by heart. Through their dedication to connect and the countless hours spent meeting kids, Wired has developed a diehard fanbase organically from show-to-show and internet word of mouth. One fan at a time, loyal to the end.

The Long Island Sound is in serious danger from climate change and Broadwater. Climate change is already starting to play a negative role in the health and productivity of the Sound and these climate effects will only continue to amplify, such as warmer water, aquatic acidification, a declining fishing industry and lobster industry, and an increase in invasive species.

The other threat, Broadwater, a joint venture between Shell Oil and TransCanada, is itching to invade the Sound and take away a massive portion of our public resource. I’m sure you know and appreciate the beauty and importance of this estuary and why we need to take care of it for future generations. Long Islanders have taken a clear and decisive stand in opposition to Broadwater, and we have a growing understanding of global climate change. In 2007, thousands of Long Islanders and Connecticut residents showed their opposition to Broadwater at public hearings and rallies and now they are ready to do more. This concert is just what we need to solidify our dedication to protecting the Long Island way of life and the legacy of our maritime culture. Global warming and Broadwater threaten this legacy and we’re taking action.

We are hopeful that you will consider this request to help us continue to mobilize Long Islanders around these critical issues.

Please join us for this historic event to celebrate and demonstrate on July 7th to witness Long Islanders galvanize their commitment to combating these critical problems facing
the Long Island Sound.
