    SPECIAL BLOCK OF ORCHESTRA TICKETS FOR SMOKEY ROBINSON AT THE NYCB THEATRE AT WESTBURY

    Long Island Cares, Inc. has an excellent block of orchestra seats for the legendary Smokey Robinson in concert at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Sunday, October 11, 2015.
    Once pronounced by Bob Dylan as America’s “greatest living poet,” acclaimed singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson’s career spans over decades of hits. He has received numerous awards including the Grammy Living Legend Award, NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award, Honorary Doctorate (Howard University), Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts Award from the President of the United States. He has also been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
    Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Robinson founded The Miracles while still in high school. The group was Berry Gordy’s first vocal group, and it was at Robinson’s suggestion that Gordy started the Motown Record dynasty. Their single of Robinson’s “Shop Around” became Motown’s first #1 hit on the R&B singles chart. In the years following, Robinson continued to pen hits for the group including “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Ooo Baby Baby,” “The Tracks of My Tears,” “Going to a Go-Go,” “More Love,” “Tears of a Clown” (co-written with Stevie Wonder), and “I Second That Emotion.”
    During the course of his 50-year career in music, Robinson has accumulated more than 4,000 songs to his credit and continues to thrill sold-out audiences around the world with his high tenor voice, impeccable timing, and profound sense of lyric. Never resting on his laurels, Smokey Robinson remains a beloved icon in our musical heritage.
    Our block of orchestra tickets are $85 each and can be purchased by contacting Claire Fratello at (631) 582.3663 x 102 of email cfratello@licares.org.  All net proceeds from the sale of these tickets support the Long Island Cares Endowment Fund. Each guest will also receive a free commemorative poster from the show.
