The Heavy Metal and Hard Rock music scene of years gone by will leaf backward through the pages of its history book to some really good times and celebrate a famous concert promoter and the two venues that were under his command. Read on down below about the February 2020 “Reunion” Celebrations of The Sundance and The Roxy.
The Press Release:
On Saturday February 15th and Saturday February 22nd 2020, Long Island music venue impresario Frank Cariola’s decades spanning career will be celebrated in a 2 Night event at Mulcahy’s Concert Hall in Wantagh staged with an all star lineup presented by Loaded Concerts. The 90 year old Cariola will be present at the shows to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award that he has certainly proven himself to be worthy of.
Frank Cariola’s Sundance started as a country music club in January 1981 in Bay Shore, New York, eventually switching over to rock in 1985. If that sounds like a familiar story, it is. Hilly Crystal’s CBGB’s, which stood for “Country, Bluegrass and Blues,” was originally a country music bar before changing over to the seminal punk rock mecca that it became. Likewise, after Sundance became a rock venue, it hosted some of the biggest rock and heavy metal bands in history.
The Details: According to my records, this latest contest will mark the fifth time that I have done a giveaway for Y&T tickets and that is fantastic. So much so, I am repeating the scoop from a past contest to get this one online fast and furious. Here we go. I’ve said this before and I will say it again. Y&T are one of the best Hard Rock bands in history if you ask me. I mentioned once that I got into the band very late but have done what I can with the site to support their efforts. If you have not seen them yet you might want to get up on that since I can honestly say that there has never been a show done by them that I didn’t feel pulled out all the stops and left the audience screaming for more. Thought the lineup has changed since the beginning the group is still commanded by the great Dave Meniketti who has those powerful pipes and plays that guitar like it’s nobody’s business. All of this makes me happy to announce that the band will once again be returning to the stage of the B.B. King Blues Club and thanks to the venue some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Cool right? Read more below on how this works.
