Big Band Concert Tonight In H. Bch.

Bringing Back Tunes Of Yesteryear

Big Band tunes will serenade Howard Beach residents during the annual Arnie Mig Memorial Concert tonight, Thursday, Aug. 21.

Sponsored for the fourth year in a row by State Sen. Joseph Addabbo and the Brady and Marshak law firm, the concert will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight at St. Helen’s Father Dooley Hall, 83-15 157th Ave. in Howard Beach.

Arnold Migliaccio, also known as Arnie Mig, played swing tunes from the era to Howard Beach audiences for over 20 years. During this annual memorial concert, Frank Pedulla and the Music Staff Swing Orchestra will once again share that music with the audience in honor of Arnie Mig.

Previously, the senator’s annual concerts have attracted hundreds of guests, dancing and enjoying the songs of years past.

“Audiences, seniors especially, have been thrilled to hear the familiar beats of yesteryear. It’s my pleasure to host this concert, bring the music back to the people of the community and honor Arnie Mig.” Addabbo said. “Music can bring back a variety of memories and also give people the opportunity to make new ones. It’s important for everyone to relax and have some fun, and this event is, and has been, the perfect event to do so.”
