Check out Latham Road. They’re an upcoming really talented group and they perform all over Long Island. I’ve seen these bands and they’re good. But you’ll really appreciate how Latham Road keeps the crowd into their shows by mixing great songs that aren’t played to death into their sets.

@ annie – i’ve been asked to go see Latham Road a few times. Do they only play on Long Island? I hear they’re pretty good.

Check out The Grand Central. It’s a great country band

The best band on Long Island is the Grand Central. They played on July 3 at Freedom Festival in Brookhaven NY. Best band by far!
