MY FATHER'S PLACE WILL BE REOPENING THIS FALL
Dear Friends of My Father's Place, patrons, and ticket holders.
My Father’s Place will be back as soon as it is safe and feasible to reopen. Right now it looks like late September or October of this year will be the earliest that indoor venues will be allowed to operate at a reasonable capacity and artists will be hitting the road again.
We should know by early this Summer what the situation will be with the pandemic, and hopefully by then we can give further details. Please hold on to your tickets, as we will be rebooking the postponed shows and new shows as well.
We hope you are safe and in good spirits during this difficult period, and we look forward to bringing you great shows soon.
In the meantime, we will be presenting light, ambient entertainment in the ballroom, featuring Mark Mancini and special guests, to provide you with a place to hang out until we reopen. Come join us every Friday and Saturday night for some cool music and a great time.
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.
