Band: Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks

image

“The premier barroom troubador of Eastern Long Island. That includes Montauk, the Hamptons on up to Riverhead and any town with an Indian name!”—Josh Alan Friedman.

GENE CASEY formed the Lone Sharks having moved to Long Island’s East End in 1988, having received his baptism performing in the NYC / NJ area (Mudd Club, CBGBs, Maxwell’s, et. al) the waning days of punk/new wave. The Lone Sharks became a mainstay in the late 1990s Hamptons music scene, when bars were plentiful and audiences robust and loyal. Throughout the 90s and into the new century Gene and the ever-evolving line-up of Sharks men were the house band at The Wild Rose Cafe, a Bridgehampton night spot where packed houses danced to the roots rock and swing. Several all-original albums (see below) emerge periodically to great acclaim and local internatinal indie radio play. In the course of maintaining their status as “Best of the Best” (Dan’s Papers and Hamptons Magazine) the Lone Sharks have shared billing and/or backed-up NRBQ, LINK WRAY, SLEEPY LaBEEF, WANDA JACKSON, BILL KIRCHEN, ELVIS COSTELLO, the Who’s JOHN ENTWISTLE, THE HIGHWAY QC’s and on one unforgettable night, TINY TIM.

Several of Gene’s roots-drenched songs have been used on the soundtrack to television and feature film, including FX Network’s “Justified” and “Sons of Anarchy” ; the 2012 thriller “The Tall Man” starring Jessica Biel, and the 2013 release “The Killing Season” starring Robert DeNiro.

December 2012 brought the release of Gene and the band’s latest all-original CD, “Untrained” an album celebrating the roots of contemporary Americana with 12 original songs that evoke the romantic sweep of 60s pop, classic C&W and the raw untamed spirit of early rock & roll (including holiday tune “Christmas Lights” ).

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 • Brian Lewis New Vintage Swing Band • SDLI

Posted by Tom on 02/02/2018 • Permalink


A beginner swing lesson will be given at 7:30PM to get you on the floor. At 8PM, Brian Lewis New Vintage Swing Band will be playing some of their great swing dance tunes. A few ballroom dances will be in the mix as well.

The recently renovated Moose Lodge has a fabulous, HUGE 1000 square foot dance floor, freshly painted walls, new ceiling, new lighting & plenty of tables to relax and chat.

No partner is needed and beginners are always welcome.

Band: New Vintage Swing Band

Much like fine champagne, The New Vintage Orchestra bubbles with an unparalleled energy and charisma that is sure to keep dancers going all night. Formed by trumpeter Brian Lewis in August of 1992, the band puts forth an incredibly diverse range of musical talent.

image

Featured is female vocalist Doris Anne Lewis, singing the hits of Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, Dianne Schure, and many other swing singers.
image image

The bands “Frank Sinatra” crooner is Ron D’Abruzzo who adds his own special blend to the great American standards.

The swing scene’s resurgence in the late 90’s was undeniable. The New Vintage Orchestra reproduces 1930’s and 40’s sounds using original arrangements from Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, and Harry James, and with special arrangements written by Brian Lewis, the band belts out the sounds of popular dance chart-toppers. Not all of New Vintage’s charts are vintage, however! They also play the hits of Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

The band has backed up such names as The Temptations, Jerry Vale, Connie Francis, Al Martino , Frankie Valli, Bob Newhart and Joan Rivers. Few bands possess the ability to set a room in motion like The New Vintage Orchestra. From the opening downbeat to the last note, screaming brass, gritty saxes, and a strong rhythm section keep the audience jumping the whole night long.

“Standards Aged to Perfection”, The New Vintage Orchestra’s debut CD release, captures the incredible versatility of the group. The album’s eleven tracks include a wide range of classics from the 1930’s and 40’s. From a foot stomping rendition of Benny Goodman’s “Sing Sing Sing” to the silky smooth lyrical lines of Doris Anne Lewis in “And the Angels Sing”, to a rousing, jazzy finale of “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In”, the band is sure to entertain, and, like that bottle of bubbly, only gets better with time.
