and The Lone Sharks
Concerts in the Park presents
“From a professional level, he and his band are just some of the best musicians around, not just the East End and all Long Island but beyond”
– Bonnie Grice, former WPPB broadcaster and host of “Bonnie in the Morning.”
As author Josh Alan Friedman wrote: “Let it be said at first, the man has a great voice. And the guy knows how to make a record … tracks have a dramatic Spector-like drama that cries out for inclusion in movie soundtracks. This may be esoteric praise, but to the masses, Casey is the premier barroom troubadour of eastern Long Island. That includes Montauk, the Hamptons, on up to Riverhead and any town with an Indian name. But there’s no doubt he would sweep the Sons of Herman Hall crowd in Dallas off their feet, not to mention the Broken Spoke in Austin.”
And Jim Faith, the producer of the annual Great South Bay Music Festival and co-founder of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame proclaimed that Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks are “definitely one of those bands that’s created the musical fabric of Long Island.”
