Q&A with Felix Cavaliere

Their music can be heard across the globe, spreading the timeless message of peace, love, and happiness. The “Young” Rascals first arrived on the scene in the early ‘60s, and within two-to-three years time, they climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 list, with nine hit singles, including such chart-toppers as, “Good Lovin,” “Groovin,” and “People Got to Be Free.”

The original Rascals consisted of four kids from Garfield, New Jersey, who were given their shot at the big time after catching the attention of promoter/manager Sid Bernstein, following a high-energy performance at Long Island’s elite club, The Barge.

“Long Island was where the Rascals were discovered,” said keyboard player/vocalist Felix Cavaliere. “Everything began for us out there.”

What To See At The 2015 Great South Bay Music Festival



For the ninth edition of the annual Great South Bay Music Festival, promoters with J. Faith Presents decided to go all out – expanding the yearly music festival to a four-day family-friendly affair in the heart of Patchogue.

Since its inception back in 2007, festival producer James Faith has watched the popularity of the festival grow leaps and bounds, quickly becoming the largest celebration of music and arts on Long Island.

“I believe that this fest resonates with true music lovers,” Faith said in a statement. “Music lovers that can really appreciate all styles of music and are open to new sounds and musical experiences. I’ve gotten the best feedback from people who say: ‘I loved Carolina Chocolate Drops or Umphreys McGee or Martin Sexton. Thanks for turning me on to them.'”

Phase I addendum

After being debriefed by a customer service rep with National Grid, a Long Island gas and electric utility provider; I was told my service appointment (scheduled a day prior to my official move) was an “all-day appointment,” which meant it literally could be anytime, from as early as 10 a.m. to as late as 11 p.m.

Despite the fact I live 60+ miles away from Rockville Centre, I waited with my dad for three hours. Able to watch the TV but with no place to sit–since we have yet to move in any chairs–we waited. I fiddled with my iPad while my dad watched Comedy Central. We waited until 8 p.m. before a LIPA employee called.

Taking seconds to turn on the gas and test the stove, one would think gaining a new customer plus my pleading with the custimer service reps to not have to wait until 11 p.m., would warrant a speedier response than this.

But, I digress, with all the utilities up and running all thats left is for me to move the heck out!

Moving Day

Just got Verizon Fios installed this afternoon… Also waiting on National Grid to turn on the gas. Electricity is up and running and so is the water. The pink bathroom is still pink but, at least now it is clean.

Tomorrow the fun really begins as I move in my bed, tables and miscellaneous furniture.
