Music on Bay

This Saturday marks the 9th Annual Westerleigh Folk Festival, Staten Island’s Original Roots Music Festival at Westerleigh Park.

As you may have heard, there’s a new Air Guitar World Champion… and he’s from Staten Island. On Friday, August 26th, Matt “Airistotle” Burns, was crowned the best Air Guitar Player in the world.

CueTrax at Cue Trax Studios on Bay Street

Cue Trax Studios opened last month at 691L Bay Street, right next door to Dock Street. The space, which some visitors might recognize from Method Man’s “The Meth Lab” video, has been fully outfitted with everything necessary to create the next big artist. The man behind the music is it’s namesake, CueTrax, a Wu Tang Clan affiliate with an impressive resume of his own.

I have to say that Major Records has brought back a moment in time for me. They offer a variety of records that are both new and old at extremely reasonable prices. Their collection is large and interesting. I could spend at least twenty minutes in there every time I go.

Come raise a ruckus, have a cocktail, eat some mac & cheese, play skee-ball, pretend it’s 2009. It’s the Wahoos. You love the Wahoos.

With Summer finally on the way this weekend, now is the perfect time for me to bust out this gem of a concert for you.

The 33rd Annual Neptune Ball takes place June 10th 2016, from 6:30PM-11:00PM at Snug Harbor Campus (1000 Richmond Terrace).

But in researching this song, I was led to a 2005 NY Times article that told a much crazier story than just a couple of guys hopped up on SI pride.

Staten Island native and filmmaker Mike Rizzo and Brooklyn singer/songwriter Brian Bonz have spent the last few years moonlighting as Bobo Touch; silent guardians of New York City etiquette.

Back in 2002, David Bowie was on tour in NYC. But this wasn’t just any tour. Bowie had pledged to play a show in every one of the five boroughs. When Bowie came to SI he decided to play at the Snug Harbor Music Hall.
