A Magnificent New Home for Long Island Entertainment
The Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame is proud to open its doors to an awe-inspiring new facility in Stony Brook, NY that is dedicated to the recognition, honor, and preservation of Long Island’s music and entertainment heritage. Since 2004, our organization has Inducted over 120 music artists and related professionals who will now be recognized in a permanent home. The space—covering 8,800 square feet—features a large exhibition area, theater, and an official “Hall of Fame Museum.”
Our official “Hall of Fame Museum” features displays of original musical instruments, famous awards, apparel, and other memorabilia from many of Long Island’s favorite artists. The wide variety of talent represented by the 120 inductees includes names like Billy Joel, Blue Oyster Cult, KISS, LL Cool J, Debbie Gibson, Louis Armstrong, the Stray Cats, and Run-DMC, among many others.
Nostalgia devotees will love our first exhibit: “Long Island’s Legendary Club Scene: 1960’s–1980’s”—designed by world-renowned visual designer, Kevin O’Callaghan. Bask in the memories while doing a “club crawl” through the nightclubs of that era such as My Father’s Place, Hammerheads, Action House/Speaks, the OBI, Mad Hatter, Pips, and Malibu, among others, where bands that included Twisted Sister, Zebra, the Rascals, the Hassles, the Illusion, Joan Jett and so many more played. Experience it all at the “Hall of Fame Museum”!
Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor, Catholic Health, and Premier Sponsor Country Carpet for their support in making the “Hall of Fame Museum” and exhibition possible.
We are closed until November 24th as we create the much anticipated Billy Joel – My Life exhibit. See you then!
