Enjoy two great Beacon-based bands playing a double-bill!
Lynn Johansen met Bob Costello late in 1991. Lynn began her career playing in a variety of bands on the Jersey Shore. Bobby C honed his skills throughout the Hudson Valley, NY. They formed a band called The Bandits. A few years ago they re-branded themselves as The Costellos. Based in Beacon, NY, their current lineup is Mark Pisanelli on drums, Producer Art Labriola on keyboard and dobro, and Jeff Carrano on bass.
The Costellos have produced five records: “Sygtagma Square,” “Roman Times,” “Outside of Paris,” “Darktime,” and “This Night,” which are all presently offered on iTunes, Amazon, and cdbaby. They are currently putting the finishing touches on their newest project “Hold On,” recorded and engineered by Scott Hull at his studio Masterdisk. It was co-produced by Art Labriola. On the stage Bobby C and Lynn have performed with a number of major acts including Jon Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, The Crash Test Dummies, NRBQ, Reverend Horton Heat, Danny Kalb (former member of the Blues Project) America, Pure Prarie League, Belinda Carlilse, and Jim Lauderdale. They were also a featured act at Woodstock ’94 in Saugerties, NY.

The Flurries of Beacon, NY bring their energetic stage show back to their hometown stage of The Towne Crier. They are a rock’n’roll trio led by Jerry Lee, their charismatic singer/guitarist/songwriter … with the tight, driving rhythm section of Peter McCaw on bass & Neil Green on drums. The Flurries blend rockabilly, radio-ready modern rock & instantly enjoyable melodies to create their signature sound.
The Flurries have released two full length albums, “Colour Show,” & their most recent, “Tail of the Comet,” both releases containing 12 tracks written by Jerry Lee, with the third album in the works. Their show brings a flurry of three-minute-gems, with Jerry’s voice going from soaring melodies to a rock’n’roll growl!
