Linda Sussman
Long Island Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame and Museum

Linda Sussman is an award-winning singer-songwriter whose music is an eclectic mix of folk, alternative-folk and blues that digs deep into our shared human experience. Her strong vocals are often compared to Joan Baez, and her versatile guitar style includes open tunings and, at times, a touch of slide.

“Sussman makes music worth listening to. She makes the personal universal and the universal personal.” — Ron Cooke, KTAL radio host

Linda has shared her music over the years on stages ranging from the iconic The Bitter End and Kenny’s Castaways in NYC’s West Village to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to Radio Bean in Burlington, VT. Since 2018, she has released five full-length albums, several of which have ranked #1 on the Roots Music Report’s Alternative Folk Album Chart. Her music has been played on 100+ radio programs across the US and abroad.

“Linda writes songs that touch the heart and move the soul.” — Prism Reviews

Linda is most grateful to her studio musicians Mike Nugent (lead guitarist) and Kevin Kelly (bassist and mixing engineer), with whom she continues to collaborate, and all the stellar musicians who have added spice to her albums. And although Linda typically performs solo, she and Mike occasionally can be found onstage together.

Linda Sussman … makes us believe that the power of art can help us find solace, strength, and the courage to create a better world.” — Sinusoidal Music

Additionally, Linda co-hosts the music series SongBreak with fellow singer-songwriter Josie Bello. Linda also presents a music and poetry program, titled Crossroads of Verse, with award-winning poet Emily-Sue Sloane.

Shindig!
Long Island Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame and Museum

Shindig! is a classic rock band that has been playing on Long Island for thirty years! From bars and restaurants to My Father’s Place in Roslyn, from outdoor public parks to private events, they’ve been entertaining the public since 1994.

As the years have gone by, some band members have moved out of state and are involved in other musical projects, but these days the band gathers together once or twice a year and reunites for special occasions. “It’s like getting back on a bicycle; it all comes naturally” say the band members.

The special occasion this year is an upcoming performance at the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame in Stony Brook. For this special show, in addition to some original material, the band will be focused on performing covers of material by many of the Long Island Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame’s inductees.

Joe Piket & The Storm
Long Island Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame and Museum

JOE PIKET has been voted Long Island’s best piano entertainer for the last three years! The LIMEHoF is proud to present Joe Piket and the Storm to kick off our new season of Sunday concerts, sponsored by PSEG.  Joe has written for movies, cable and television, and performed with members of some very well-known bands, including some of the musicians on his solo CD, NINE TIMES FRAMED. The critical acclaim he received for NINE TIMES FRAMED led to the formation of his current band, JOE PIKET AND THE STORM. “People kept asking where they could hear these songs live, so I decided it was time to put a band together and get out and play again”. Audiences in New York City and on Long Island have been blown away by JOE PIKET AND THE STORM’s energy, their musical integrity, and their lyrical originality. They have appeared with Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Randy Jackson of Zebra, and Jason Bonham, son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. They have charted on CMJ, and their music is currently being played on most college radio stations. Rave reviews have appeared in Newsday, Good Times, Aural Fix, and L.I.E., as well as many on-line publications.
