For the second consecutive year, The East End Music & Arts Festival will bring a unique fusion of two different artistic impressions to a variety of venues across the East End.
Presented by the entertainment organization, uniphi good, the festival will feature three days of music, entertainment and culture to benefit the Springs Food Pantry, Wounded Warrior Project, and Higher Orbits.
A concert event with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of RUN DMC fame, and Grammy-nominated artists Tonic, singer-songwriter Glen Phillips from Toad the Wet Sprocket and Toby Lightman, will take place at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett on Saturday, September 19. McDaniels will sign copies of his critically acclaimed comic books at BookHampton in East Hampton earlier that afternoon, while the other musicians sign albums and perform at Innersleeve Records in Amagansett.
The art component of the festival, which has a decidedly musical theme, brings together signed artwork by rock and roll legends Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. The show will open with a reception on Friday, September 18 at the 69 Main Street Gallery in Southampton, and be on display, and for sale, throughout the weekend.
“After a great first festival last year, we all just knew that we had to do it again,” said Annie Balliro, Founder & CEO of uniphi good. “The fact that every event will benefit a local charity or community organization is a true reflection of the good nature of all the amazing folks coming together to make this crazy idea become a reality.”
An “Art & Astronauts” event for kids will take place on Saturday,
September 19 at the Springs Presbyterian Church, where professional art educators will lead kids in projects related to space. Navy Captain Frank Culbertson, an eighteen-year career NASA astronaut, will also be in attendance.
