Did you get your tickets for this Saturday’s Concert by the Bay?

Hailed by Newsday as “Long Island’s leading professional big band…dedicated to the Great American Songbook,” SWINGTIME Big Band is a 20-piece authentic Swing Era jazz ensemble, including two entertaining vocalists who perform classic songs from stage & screen, perfect for a summer evening!

This exciting 20-piece ensemble recreates the toe-tapping sounds of Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Harry James, and Les Brown, plus Swingtime’s entertaining vocalists who salute the legendary Nelson Riddle in celebration of his 100th birthday — showcasing his iconic recordings with Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Linda Ronstadt, Dean Martin, and the immortal Frank Sinatra.

The tickets include parking and seating at the concert. All seating will be on the lawn with a view of the stage and the Great South Bay. There will be food trucks available for the purchase of goodies or you can bring your own refreshments. If you prefer to bring your own chairs/blankets, you are free to do so.
