LIGHTHOUSE HARLEY DAVIDSON AND THE LONG ISLAND MUSIC HALL OF FAME PRESENT MUSIC AND MOTORCYLES
Four-Day Exhibit Includes Presentation About Music and Motorcycles, Educational Workshops For Kids, and Billy Joel’s Motorcycles
Garden City, NY - (January 16, 2009) -- Lighthouse Harley Davidson and the Long Island Music Hall of Fame (LIMHoF) present a special four-day event “Music and Motorcycles.” The exhibit will be open to the public beginning Wednesday, March 4 and culminates with “Kid’s Day” on Saturday, March 7, featuring hands-on workshops and special performances for children.
Rock music and motorcycles have been linked together since its early days. The number 1 hit "Leader of the Pack" performed by Long Island’s own The Shangri-Las, produced by Long Island Music Hall Of Fame Inductee George "Shadow" Morton, and later covered by Long Island Music Hall Of Fame Inductee's Twisted Sister, is a prime example.
The Long Island Music Hall of Fame presents the exhibit at Lighthouse Harley Davidson, the home of 2006 Inductee Billy Joel's own 20th Century line of motorcycles. The exhibit has been expanded to include a section about other LIMHoF inductees who enjoy the sport of motorcycling like Billy Joel, Dee Snider/Mark Mendoza of Twisted Sister, DMC of Run DMC (who can be found in the current Harley Davidson catalogue), and CJ Ramone of The Ramones.
The exhibit will culminate on Saturday March 7th with "Kids Day", featuring hands-on music educational workshops geared towards children.
The exhibit is free to the public. The Long Island Music Hall of Fame will be accepting donations for the future museum, scholarship fund and other programs. Long Island Music Hall of Fame, 20th Century Cycle, and Harley Davidson merchandise will be available at the event.
Lighthouse Harley Davidson is located 670 East Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station. The exhibit will be on display during regular store hours (W/Th 9:30-6, F 9:30-8, and Sat 10-5).
