Long Island’s Sound Waves Benefit Concert Will Feature Local Music Artists

Long Islanders! The first-ever Sound Waves Music Festival is coming to Huntington in Long Island, New York this Friday, March 8.

The benefit concert and fundraiser will feature emerging young artists in support of two great causes, The Heart School in Haiti, which provides educational resources to children in Haiti and My Sister’s Place, an organization that strives to end domestic violence and human trafficking. This all-ages event will bring young bands Vaeda Black, Ernie & The Band, Llylac, and Sons of Sound for a night of music and an important cause.

“We truly have a passion around both music and giving back, and that’s the driving force behind this event,” said co-founder, Tommy Spero. “Whenever people can connect, be it through music, having something in common, or working together for a cause, it’s powerful.”

Vaeda Black is a 17-year-old singer-songwriter currently in her senior year in High School. Her unique sound blends alt-pop, hip-hop, indie rock and soul that takes listeners on a dark and mysterious journey through a wide range of emotions.

Ernie & The Band is quickly becoming a must-see act in the area. Their combining elements of jam, blues, and classic rock, helps them entice a variety of fans with a new classic sound.

Sons of Sound is the youngest band performing in the event, with members ranging from 13 to 15 years old. This inspiring trio serves bluesy, guitar-driven rock derived from powerhouses Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix.

Llylac is a very mysterious indie rock band comprised of Harborfields High School musicians. Their jam band crosses different genres and styles that everyone can enjoy.

From jam and alternative pop to new classic rock and blues, music fans of all ages will discover something new at the Sound Waves Music Festival! To get more information and buy your own tickets, visit the Eventbrite page here.
