“Music and film are inseparable. They always have been and always will be.” – Martin Scorsese

On Saturday, March 24th, The New York Roots Music Association (NYRMA) is proud to present “Director’s Cut: Music From The Films Of Martin Scorsese.” To a film maker, music is as an important element, sometimes even more important, as is the actor or dialogue in the scene. The right background music adds emotion, rhythm and can increase the emotional aspects of what is often considered mainly a visual experience.

You would be hard pressed to find another director who uses music to the level of Martin Scorsese. With a blend of scored soundtrack music and popular recordings, Scorsese forms a bond between light, dialogue, sound and music that creates a moment in time that becomes inseparable. Ask anyone what their favorite Scorsese film scene is and chances are they will mention the song that is playing in the background.

The NYRMA All-Stars will be playing songs from such classic Scorsese films as “Mean Streets,” “Goodfellows,” “The Departed,” “Taxi Driver,” “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” and many others.

Join NYRMA as we bring these classics to life on Saturday, March 24th featuring over 30 of Long Island’s most talented musicians. Throughout the night, you’ll hear selections from a wide variety of artists including The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Harry Nilson, Louis Prima, REM, Tony Bennett, The Clash, Elmore James, Ray Charles, The Beach Boys and many more!

The NYRMA All-Stars, featuring Tom Ryan, Howie Silverman, Mark Pohl, Al Speed, Dan Weymouth, Don Olsen, Rich Hall, Gary Dawson, Chris James, Steve Prisco, Mikey Vitale, Russ Seeger and Dave Wise will back an incredible selection of guest vocalists including Allen Santoriello, Annie Mark, Jessica Upham, Raecine Coles, Jim Treutlein, Andrew Fortier, Gil McLean, Jeff McClary, Bill Shuren, Claudia Jacobs, Tom Gould, Cathy Kreger, Pete Mancini, Mike Drance, Nate Schweber, Jessica Silverman-Salm, Eamonn Bowles and more to be announced!

The show will take place at 8PM (doors open at 7PM) on Saturday, March 24th, 2018 at the American Legion Post 360, located at 1 Mill Dam Road, in Huntington, NY. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show. Located right on beautiful Huntington Harbor, the Legion offers plenty of space to rock out, a large, fully-staffed bar area and ample on-site parking!
