August 8th, 2017 – On Tuesday night the Nesconset community gathered once again at the Nesconset Gazebo to get their share of music and camaraderie. This evening Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) introduced Completely Unchained, the premier Van Halen cover band. This family friendly show was graced with two openers, first to open up the show Sophia DiStefano, a student at Smithtown West High School, sang the National Anthem stunningly . Next up, Little Miss Nesconset, known for picking raffle tickets, sang God Bless the USA.

After that, Completely Unchained rocked the Gazebo with all the classic  Van Halen hits, the Sammy Hagar years, and David Lee Roth’s greatest solo hits. The crowd was enthusiastic to hear them play, as they relived the glory days of Van Halen, arguably the greatest Dutch-American heavy metal band.

“This was a spectacular upbeat show, as always I want to thank my two opening singers, Sophia DiStefano, and Little Miss Nesconset,” said Legislator Kennedy. “ I  also want to thank the Nesconset Chamber of Commerce for organizing this great series and Completelty Unchained for rocking in front of our whole community.”

45 RPM will be playing next Tuesday, August 17th, at the Gazebo, this is the last show of the summer. For any questions about this concert or other events feel free to contact Leslie Kennedy’s office at (631) 854-3735, and do not hesitate to reach us online at or
