The summer musical series is presented in partnership with Postilio and Conlon, top realtors from Douglas Elliman Real Estate who have deep roots in entertainment as star cast members of the hit HGTV show Sell New York, and from famous realtors to talents such as Liza Minnelli, Barry Manilow, Marilyn Horne, Michael Feinstein and David Sanborn. Passionate about American music history, they are deeply committed to supporting the arts and culture scene on the North Shore of Long Island, where they have a home in the village of Nissequogue.
The duo came up with the concept of the event in 2021 as a way to bring their community together after the pandemic. Grammy-nominated artist and American “musical treasure” Marilyn Maye headlined the first event and delivered a performance so unforgettable that music lovers were asking for more. Postilio, Conlon and The Jazz Loft are answering that demand with this exciting announcement: the series is returning in 2022 with another spectacular lineup.
“Music brings people together and makes the world a better place. We are thrilled to partner with Jazz Loft to bring another incredible concert series to the Long Island community,” said Postilio. “We look forward to meeting new friends and neighbors at Jazz Loft this summer.”
Conlon added, “The Jazz Loft is an institution that makes an invaluable contribution to the arts on Long Island. The culture here is what initially drew us to the area, and we’re proud to be part of that tradition with The Summer Music Series.
