I am so glad that I had the opportunity to be on the Frank Prince Show on Madhouse TV to talk about my website about a year ago - entertainmeli.com.  Frank was a wonderful man, and really made me feel welcome on his show.  It seems that everyone who knew him felt that way about him.  He really supported Long Island entertainment.  Frank, you will be truly missed.

ENTERTAINMELONGISLAND.COM is a great resource, a directory for finding places to go where you can enjoy all types of entertainment on Long Island (live bands/music, DJ/dancing, comedy and karaoke).  Long Island is rich with local entertainment and EntertainMeLongisland.com's goal is to help promote and support local entertainers, entertainment and businesses on Long Island.

 

Let's call this portion of the home page - opinion corner.  This is a chance for local entertainers to let us know what is going on in the Long Island entertainment scene from the inside as well as share with us their opinions of what they see around them when they perform.  When you perform, you are not just sharing your art and talent but you get to see first hand how people react, what gets them to dance, makes them clap, gets them to just take it in and enjoy.  This short article is written by John Haseth a very talented musician who has been a long participant and fan of the Long Island music scene. 

 

I don't rant much..ruffling feathers ..etc...not my thing..but after reading the brutally honest post from my band mate, I felt compelled to speak my mind on what I believe to be the near-complete devaluation of the arts and music in general..these are only my opinions.  Music may be both Art and Entertainment, but it is Art first and Entertainment second. Art represents culture..and the attitude towards it in this country (for the most part) is an embarrassment. In other parts of the world, the Arts are revered, respected, and preserved for future generations. Here, we artists have disposable electronic gadgets that compose our songs and play our instruments while we pedal fragrance and our new clothing lines..ugh...As music lovers, listeners, and (hopefully) consumers..don't we recognize that we love the music we love because it is more than the sum of its parts? It makes us feel something that we can't identify but know it's spectacular..and the souls and spirits that bring this to you, (the composers and musicians)are WORTH your time, attention and appreciation...Don't be a music snob, just be a...MUSIC..fan. Value it..treasure it..don't take it for granted. Thanks for reading and have an awesome day

 

Thanks John, I hope that I can play a role in helping you be heard. 

 

I would really like to hear from other entertainers (musicians, comedians, singers, DJ's, etc.) on Long Island with their feelings, observations, musings.  If you have something to say, put it together in words and I will be happy to post it on this website, right on this home page.

 

LONG ISLAND, EntertainMeLi.com is back and ready to help the entertainment community on Long Island Kick Some.....
