Tickets for this event are available at the Cinema Arts Center on the day of the performance. Prices are $8 for FMSH and Cinema Arts Centre Members / $12 for Non Members. There are no advance tickets for this event.
Jerry DeMeo is a Huntington-based singer-songwriter and guitarist with an expressive singing voice, engaging guitar work and ebullient stage presence. Drawing his guitar-playing influences from artists such as Leo Kottke, Stephen Stills and Jorma Kaukonen, Jerry performs original material along with an impressive array of covers — all marked with his own individual imprint.
Says former My Father’s Place owner Michael “Eppy” Epstein: “Jerry DeMeo, with his multifaceted personality, brings … not only great singing and original songs…. He’s both witty and funny and brings a friend-and-family milieu to any venue [where] he performs.”
DeMeo released his first album of original songs earlier this year. Entitled Headin’ East, Headin’ West, the CD features an acoustic sound highlighted by electric guitar and a combination of country sensibility, rhythm and blues feel, and bossa nova accents.
