Fans of straight up rock n’ roll will be pleased to know that Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor is bringing back Joe Lauro and his “Legends of Rock” films at the Sag Harbor venue on Fridays, January 20, February 10, and March 10 at 8 p.m.
The “Legends” programs are made up of rare and iconic filmed performances by the greatest icons in rock ‘n’ roll, jazz and blues. Past segments have included seldom seen clips of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, Sex Pistols, David Bowie and many others.
Music fans can expect to see a new program on each date celebrating the diversity and passion that is American music. They will be hosted by musician and film historian Joe Lauro, owner of Historic Films Archive, which is dedicated to the re-discovery and preservation of all forms of American entertainment on film and video tape.
Historic Films has provided film clips to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Martin Scorsese (for his “Blues” and “Bob Dylan” projects), American Idol, and The Grammy Awards, among others.
Bay Street Theater is located on Long Wharf in Sag Harbor. Tickets to each screening are $15 online at baystreet.org or by calling (631) 725-9500.
