GENE CASEY and the LONE SHARKS: A Rock & Roll Dance Party Celebrating 30 Years of Rhythm & Twang

September 29
at 8:00pm

GENE CASEY formed the Lone Sharks after moving to Long Island’s East End in 1988, having received his baptism performing in the NYC / NJ area (Mudd Club, CBGBs, Maxwell’s, et. al) the waning days of punk/new wave. The Lone Sharks became a mainstay in the late 1990s Hamptons music scene, when bars were plentiful and audiences robust and loyal. Throughout the 90s and into the new century Gene and the evolving line-up of Sharks men were the house band at The Wild Rose Cafe, a Bridgehampton night spot where packed houses danced to the roots rock and swing.

Gene’s original music emerged periodically to great acclaim and local and international indie radio play. Several of Gene’s roots-drenched songs have been used on the soundtracks to television and feature films, including “Justified” and “Sons of Anarchy” ; the 2012 thriller “The Tall Man” starring Jessica Biel, the 2013 release “The Killing Season” starring Robert DeNiro, and Rob Reiner’s acclaimed “Being Charlie”.

March 2017 saw the release of Gene’s latest CD, “Guitar In The Rain” an album celebrating the roots of contemporary Americana with original songs that evoke the romantic sweep of 60s pop, classic C&W and the raw untamed spirit of early rock & roll.

In 2014 Gene and the Lone Sharks were inducted into the Dan’s Papers “Best of the Best” Hall of Fame, having been honored for the better part of 20 Years as favorite musicians/band.  In 2015, Gene Casey received the LISA, aka , the Long Island Sound Award by the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, for his contributions to the Island’s musical landscape. In 2017, the Northforker.com (the on-line arm of the Suffolk Times) named Gene and the group “People of the Year” for 2016.
