"All for the Bays" Concert Benefits Shinnecock Bay

The Hamptons Visitors Council presented its first annual “All for the Bays Concert,” last Thursday, July 31st at Ponquogue Beach in Hampton Bays.  Proceeds will benefit the Shinnecock Stewardship Fund at the Long Island Community Foundation.

Bonnie Grice of WPPB radio hosted the event, which featured the Grammy Award Winner, Rick Derringer along with The Doors Tribute Band, LA Woman. Locals Dub Steady and Maria performed.

“Scott Horowitz and I were talking,” says Donna Lanzetta, president of the East Quogue Chamber of Commerce, “we kind of had the same idea at the same time and we kind of merged it into this concert.”

Lanzetta mentioned Grice and everyone else involved had volunteered their time. “I think it’s wonderful to see the community come out and enjoy themselves on our fantastic beach,” says South Hampton Town Trustee, Scott Horowitz.

SHiRP representatives were in attendance to spread awareness and enjoy the show. The music began after a VIP meet and greet with Rick Derringer and the other musical guests at Dockers.

Attendees mentioned the need to improve the health of the local waterways. “The bays and the ocean are the lifeblood of Hampton Bays,” says Jack McKenna of Hampton Bays, “we should all get behind it and help out anyway we can.”

Susan Gentile-Hackett of the Southampton Visitors Council hopes to make the event annual. “It all fell into place very quickly,” Gentile-Hackett say, “we have a day for next year and we have some momentum.”
