Bring your dancing slippers when the six-piece rock band, Spontaneous Combustion, presents a rock and roll dance concert featuring top hits of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s on Sunday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m. at Congregation Tifereth Israel (CTI) in Glen Cove.
Spontaneous Combustion formed more than 20 years ago out of a desire to play rock ‘n’ roll. The group took its name from the fact that the original members were all volunteer firemen in various Long Island communities. Two of the current members are still active as volunteer firemen. The members are keyboardist Carl Schreiber, a Glen Head resident and CTI member; Ken Lang, also of Glen Head, on guitar and vocals; Steve Jones, of Mineola, on guitar and vocals; Frank Chester of Williston Park on base guitar and vocals; Don Amira of East Williston on percussion and vocals; and Mickey Giehl of Setauket on drums and vocals.
Admission is $18 for adults, ($20 at the door) and $10 for people under age 18. Soft drinks, snacks and desserts will be served and a cash bar will be available for alcoholic beverages. All proceeds benefit CTI. For reservations, call 516-676-5080.
