Tag: Long Island Music Hall of Fame
Grammy Award-winning guitarist, singer and Carle Place native Steve Vai is one of 10 recording artists that will be inducted into The Long Island Music Hall of Fame (LIMHOF) next month. Also being honored are Amagansett-based film score composer Carter Burwell, the late Queens-born producer Sandy Pearlman and five Brooklynites, including rapper Big Daddy Kane, producer Charles Koppleman, singer Garland Jeffreys, surf rockers Santo & Johnny, saxophonist Vince Giordano and composer Jim Steinman. Westbury Music Fair will be the second local music venue to be inducted. And accepting the Harry Chapin Music Award is rocker, producer and actor Steven Van Zandt—a New Jersey resident who’s the lone non-Long Islander being inducted.
