Great Shows at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center is one of the hidden gems on the East End!

Every time I go , I wonder why I don’t go more often.

Last night, my husband and I went to see Joe Jackson perform.. what a treat! He played his music as well as that of Duke Ellington’s. Regina Carter and the rest of his orchestra was wonderful. Such talent, just a few feet away.

AND THE WINNER IS…..

Westhampton Dunes may be the winner of an ASPBA contest for “Best Restored Beaches Across America”. This would be a second win for Westhampton Dunes, confirming what we already know…. The most pristine beaches in the world run along the eastern coast of Long Island. Through the tireless efforts of the village of Westhampton Beach, the shoreline has been replenished and restored. Located 75 miles from Manhattan, a ninety -minute drive can take you from the lights of Broadway to the beauty of the oceanfront.

Elvis Costello SOLD OUT the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Elvis Costello and the Imposters played to a sold out audience at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. On stage was a huge game show wheel ,“The Spectacular Spinning Songbook”, which selected audience members put into motion featuring song titles like the first spun classic “Accidents Will Happen”.

A highlight for the evening was the song “Town Cryer”, which is virtually never played live. It was absolutely fantastic!

“Radio Radio” was awesome. The beads were flying as a Go-Go Girl was relentlessly tearing up the Go-Go Cage.

The theatre of 425 seats was an intimate setting for the Grammy winning Elvis Costello and the Imposters. “A Slow Drag with Josephine” was beautifully done. Costello briefly sang acapella, which truly felt like Elvis was in your living room.

Fedoras off to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center for bringing such musical Icons to the hamlet.
