Lobby 100

Live in the Lobby started as a way to bring people to Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts (PTPA) on nights that the Main Stage was dark. We soon learned that there is a deep talent pool for Local Original Music on Long Island. We then heard from the musicians that very few venues welcomed and even preferred original songs and put the music first. We sought to become that venue. We created a seated, comfortable, acoustically appropriate, all ages alternative to late night bars, and went to work. With a dedicated group of volunteers setting up and breaking down, and the volunteer team from Paradiddle Records handling production, we've proudly become a "venue within a venue" that The New York Times called, "A felicitous space for music listening."

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect that we'd do 100 shows and beyond, but here we are, having just completed our Tenth season.

Even as more venues have embraced #Local Original music, audiences still flock to the Lobby because it's a unique space with a great vibe. I'm proud of what we've built and eternally grateful to the PTPA Board and Staff for their support, to the Village of Patchogue for maintaining this amazing building and to our volunteers who have become my family of fellow music lovers.

Long live Live in the Lobby!

Christopher Capobianco PTPA Board member and curator for Live in the Lobby June 16, 2015

Dedicated to all the volunteers who make these shows happen!

The Concert For Haiti Relief

Paradiddle Records & Recording Studio

In cart Not available Out of stock

On January 28th, over 200 people, including performers, staff, volunteers and audience members showed their support for the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti at a special Live In The Lobby at the Patchogue Theatre. The event raised over $4,500 for the American Red Cross to help support their humanitarian relief efforts in Haiti. The concert featured The Michael Jazz Trio, Iridesense, Johnny Cuomo, Miles To Dayton, Martha Trachtenberg, The Sun Gets Down, Katie Pearlman, The Lone Sharks, Michael Korb and Rorie Kelly. These are excerpts from the show.

In response to the growing need for relief after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, members of the Patchogue Theatre Live in the Lobby family have mobilized to present a special concert to raise money in support of the humanitarian efforts of the American Red Cross. The concert will be held on Thursday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts and feature popular local performers, including the Michael Jazz Trio, The Loan Sharks, Miles to Dayton, The Sun Gets Down, Iridesense and more. The organizers also plan to have drawings for donated artwork from the Patchogue Arts Council and gift certificates from local restaurants and shops in the Patchogue area.

The event came to life through the efforts of Theatre board member Christopher Capobianco, Bill Herman of Paradiddle Records, Andrew Steeley of WEHM-FM radio and John Govia of 101.7 “The Beach” radio.

“We all felt that there was something we could do, so we started working the phones,” said Capobianco. His first call was to Patchogue Village Trustee Jack Krieger who serves as liaison to the theater. Krieger helped to secure partial funding for expenses through a sponsorship pledge from the Patchogue First community organization of which he is a member.

“I was happy to help get the ball rolling,” commented Krieger, “but we could use a few more sponsors to cover the costs of producing the show. I’m asking for $200 more, and then 100 percent of what we bring in on the night of the show will go to the Red Cross.” If you would like to be a sponsor, or donate items for the drawings, contact Krieger at 631-987-2972 or e-mail jackkrieger@optonline.net.

Krieger also spoke with Patchogue resident Hamilton Merilus, a native of Haiti who described the plight of family and friends who have suffered in the aftermath of the quake. Merilus, who is already working with the Red Cross in Medford to raise funds, was enthusiastic about participating in the Live in the Lobby event. “I think we can all make a difference if we work together and I thank the Patchogue Theatre and the Patchogue community for helping the Haitian people in their moment of misery and sadness,” he said. Merilus will be at the event to speak and plans to introduce some Haitian musicians who will perform during the evening.

According to Capobianco, the Haiti Relief event will be run like a regular Live in the Lobby with limited capacity for about 100 people, but he hopes that more people come by to drop off their donations. “We’re keeping the admission price at our usual $10 a person, but will encourage people to reach deeper into their pockets and donate as much as they can afford.” The theater will be accepting donations by check only (made out to the American Red Cross) at the box office everyday from noon to 6 p.m. or you can mail them to the Patchogue Theatre, Box 2400, Patchogue, NY 11772.

Homegrown

Jay Scott

In cart Not available Out of stock

Recorded live at the Patchogue Theater, January 6th, 2008, in front of a sold out house.

...this album has great melodies and harmonies and rhythms"-The Celebrity Cafe

Reviewer: Marie J. Pellegrino

If you're looking for blues, a bittersweet blues sound with a touch of sass and a dash of contemporary life, then you're looking for Jay Scott. After a few turns with assembled bands, Jay takes it out solo and his experience, and experiences, are shared with a heartfelt pathos and a sensitivity to the predicaments we share in life. “Moment In Time” kicks off the CD as a rocking declaration that Jay’s long awaited moment has arrived, as evidenced by this, his first full length solo album. “Come Around” follows as an up-tempo jazz-laced riff that will immediately set your toes to tapping. "Sometimes" is a stand out song for the simplicity of its tune and lyrics, and the beautiful backing vocal by Jessie Haynes. Beneath the simplicity of the lyrics is a deep sense of sincere passion: "Beggars they cheat and cheaters they lie and sometimes your lover says goodbye." Hey, it stinks but it's true. It is necessary to hear Jay sing it, in is his touch below tenor, teetering on gravely, voice. “Good Fight" is a great track with three part harmonies built on a simple acoustic tune that speaks to us all - we all have our gray days and although we sometimes feel put upon by life's demands, we pull it together and keep it together for ourselves and those we care about. Jay takes it up tempo again with "Lightening and Thunder” and "Deliver". "Lightening and Thunder” captures the jamming live sound of Jay Scott and Grand Case Scenario as Jay cuts loose with a hard, forceful vocal and "Deliver" is a funky club sound blues tune and you can feel yourself moving to the solid beat but you know somebody is gonna be done wrong, again. Finally, “Lonely Road” is Jay Scott classic for those who have been following him for a number of years, and has long been the closing song for his live shows. This tale of Jay’s trip to the west coast and back features backing vocals from Rorie Kelly. Take a little time and enjoy Jay Scott and maybe in his reflections you will see reflections of yourself. See yourself and maybe a few of those thoughtful times may come to mind. And maybe a few smiles will come from your reflections on your bittersweet times.
