On Friday, September 4, at 6 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum presents Music on the Terrace with the Lynn Blue Band.
Lynn Blue has been singing since day one. At age 19 she went on a small regional tour with the cast of “Godspell” and in the 1990s she was in a band in New York City called Modesty Blaze, playing East Village dives like Spiral and Arlene Grocery.
With Dave Portocarrero on guitar and vocals, and Jim Nanos on bass and vocals, Blue and her band play classic rock, folk rock, blues, alternative and original music all over the East End. Covering the Beatles, Pretenders, Bob Dylan, Stones, Joan Osborne, Arthea, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Aretha, Bonnie Raitt, Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Oasis, Amy Winehouse, Elvis Costello, Beck and whatever else strikes their fancy, Blue and the band also write and perform original music.
Portocarrero has been playing guitar on Long Island for over 30 years. Influenced by a wide variety of music especially rock, progressive, and jazz, he owns a recording studio and also plays bass guitar and drums.
Nanos grew up listening to and playing music. He moved to Los Angeles where he worked with producer Gary Usher. He produced the first records for the LA punk band X and played with the Billy Zoom band. He returned to New York in 1989 and has played with countless local bands ever since.
