MY FATHER'S PLACE
Dear Friends and Patrons,
My Father’s Place is currently closed because of COVID. The pandemic has created a major disruption in the live touring industry and is not expected to subside for the next few months. Our primary goal is and will continue to be the health and safety of our patrons, our staff, and the artists.
It is fully anticipated My Father’s Place will put on shows as soon as we feel we can safely invite capacity audiences back inside our club and successfully resume profitable operations without fearing further future interruption.
In the meantime, if you wish a refund for shows you have purchased, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send us your ticket information with your request.
Thank you for your support,
My Father's Place
There was a time in Long Island's cultural history when the whole world looked here for the next big trend in rock 'n' roll. That was between 1974 and 1980, the heyday of My Father's Place, a cabaret in Roslyn. And Michael Epstein, known as Eppy, ran the whole shebang. Along with My Father's Place, which opened on Memorial Day in 1971 with a concert by Richie Havens, a confluence of entities created a scene that would influence music for decades to come.
The New York Times, August 27, 2000.
Between 1971 and 1987, My Father’s Place presented more than 6,000 shows from over 3,000 diverse artists. It was the premier venue for original local talent and an essential tour stop for established national acts. During its prolific era, the club presented an unmatched and unforgettable range of talent in rock, jazz, fusion, country, punk, soul, reggae, folk, and comedy. The club was especially known for as a place for aspiring artists such as Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, Billy Joel, Charlie Daniels, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Tom Petty, and so many more. Not just musicians, but young comedians like Billy Crystal, Eddie Murphy, and Andy Kaufman also got their start there.
MFP debuted in America most of Reggae’s biggest stars, helping to make the genre mainstream, and along with CBGB’s and Max’s Kansas City, was a nurturing ground for young punk and new wave acts like The Runaways, The Ramones, Blondie, The Police, and The Talking Heads. But unlike other clubs, who specialized in one form of music or one period in time, My Father’s Place hosted national acts at the same time it was helping to break new artists. James Brown, B.B. King, Stanley Clarke, Rick Derringer, Bo Diddley, and a host of other music greats performed as well. Indeed, few clubs in history have showcased the depth and breadth of talent like My Father’s Place.
