From 1971-1987, the Long Island village of Roslyn was the home to a popular music venue called My Father’s Place. Housed in a former bowling alley, the club at 19 Bryant Ave hosted acts diverse as The Police, Bruce Springsteen, James Brown, Mighty Diamonds and Joan Jett. Joining us for a look back at this Long Island musical hotspot is WLIR and WRCN radio personality Denis McNamara and My Father’s Place house photographer Steve Rosenfield. Plus, we chat with the club's founder, Michael "Eppy" Epstein.
Steve Rosenfield will discuss his photography at The Rye Arts Center on May 22, 2011 at the opening of "Off The Record, New York Music After Woodstock." More information here.
