The weather outside was frightful, but the gala inside was delightful as 250 guests braved the cold, driving rain to celebrate the centennial of Coe Hall at Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay. The house was decked out in its finest, with an enormous Christmas tree at the entrance. As guests walked past lighted garlands, waiters with silver trays of chilled champagne flanked both sides of the hallway leading to the great room, where music filled with house from the newly restored Steinway piano.

Over the years, Long Island has fostered a wide variety of musicians spanning various genres—including everyone from Billy Joel and Public Enemy to Brand New and Blue Oyster Cult. This trend continues strong today. Currently, there are hundreds of musicians littered across the island. Among them is East Norwich pop singer Steven Rodriguez.
Originally from Brentwood, Rodriguez moved to East Norwich after serving in the US Navy. Upon arriving home from service, Rodriguez’s friend heard him singing and encouraged him to pursue music more seriously.
“When I returned home from the Navy, a good friend heard me singing one day and encouraged me to sing with a band his friend was putting together.”

The Town of Oyster Bay’s Holiday on Ice Show, which has become a holiday tradition for town residents, will again be presented at the Town of Ice Bay Center in Bethpage. The popular show, now in its fourth year, will take place on Saturday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. Admission is free, but in keeping with “the season of giving,” those attending the show are asked to bring two non-perishable food items to the show, which will be collected by Island Harvest, an organization committed to ending hunger on Long Island.
“‘Holiday On Ice ‘ is an event that our residents eagerly look forward to each year, and I am delighted that our town’s residents and their families will once again be able to enjoy this special presentation,” said Councilman Chris Coschignano. “Some of the finest skaters in the nation will be performing and showcasing their talent.” The supervisor added that students of the town’s figure skating program will also be performing.
