Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano has announced that the Village People and the Trammps will perform at Eisenhower Park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre on Sunday, August 19th. The concert, which will be honoring the Knights of Pythias, will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.
After 36 years, the world’s disco icons, the Village People, continue to combine energetic choreography with superb vocal presentation. Their impact on music has earned them the title “Kings of Disco” and they have sold more than 100 million records worldwide. The Trammps, one of the first disco bands, is best known for their Grammy Award winning single, “Disco Inferno,” which was included on the 1977 Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.
Much of the programming at the Lakeside Theatre is made possible through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which are proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received more than ten million dollars from the Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which also has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
