Patchogue Theatre and Paradiddle Records present: 40 Years of Tom Petty

Shorefront Park, Patchogue, NY

Saturday, August 26th at 7 PM; Shorefront Park Bandshell, Patchogue Village, Long Island

A free concert to benefit RockCanRoll featuring Long Island's own Butchers Blind, Revolver and Iridesense celebrating the music of Tom Petty and helping RockCanRoll collect food and funds for Long Islanders in need.

It's been 40 years since the release of the first Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers album established Petty as a beloved songwriter and performer and launched a career that won him many awards including induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Paradiddle Records and Live in the Lobby at Patchogue Theatre both started in 2006, with the same mission of nurturing Local Original Musicians. In 2007, the two organizations teamed up when Paradiddle brought a team of volunteers to The Lobby to handle audio production. That partnership continues to this day. For their efforts, Paradiddle was proclaimed "True Champions of Long Island music" by Good Times Magazine and Live in the Lobby was called "A felicitous space for music listening" by The New York Times.

Rock CAN Roll is a non-profit hunger relief organization that collaborates with rock concerts and events. Their message is simple: You CAN Help Out While You Rock Out! Please bring a donation of healthy, nonperishable food to support Rock CAN Roll in their efforts to feed hungry Long Islanders and their Pets.

This show is part of the Village of Patchogue summer concert series. Thank you Mayor Paul Pontieri and Maria Giustizia, Director of Parks and Recreation.
