Musicians will be performing throughout the day Saturday at Eisenhower Park as part of a benefit concert to raise money for Superstorm Sandy victims still struggling to recover from the devastating hurricane.

“Concert in the Park—Nassau Helping Nassau,” produced by Bobby G, a Wantagh resident and Sept. 11, 2001 first responder, is slated to go on from noon to 9:30 p.m. at the Lakeside Theatre.

Residents will be treated to performances by Michael DelGuidice, from the popular Billy Joel cover band, Big Shot, as well as Uppercut—the Ultimate Horn Powered Band, Five Stone, That 70s Band, Rapid Fire, and Beatles Cover Band Strawberry Fields, among others.

The concert is free but officials are inviting visitors to donate $10 for the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund, which was set up after the Oct. 29 storm to assist hurricane victims.

“Thousands of Nassau County homes and small businesses were devastated by Hurricane Sandy,” said Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano. “Concert in the Park brings together many local musicians under one roof to help raise money for the hundreds of families and seniors who are struggling to recover. I thank all the musicians and Bobby G for volunteering their time to benefit our neighbors.”
