A Collection of Long Island Local Talent. 8 Bands, 8 Albums, Pay What You Want.
The idea was simple: Gather together 8 of the most talented up and coming local music acts and, through combined forces, put together a showstopper for music fans in the area and beyond. Created by Michael Perlmutter, The Long Island Music Bundle was built to help share and spread local Music. Perlmutter contacted the CEO of Groupees.com, a website specializing in content bundles, and formed a partnership. This distribution method is a first for local music being packaged this way. Music fans can pay what they want (with a small minimum) to receive full length albums from some of the biggest local talent the scene has to offer. The genre spanning compilation includes Heavy Duty Super Ego, Christine Sweeney & the Dirty Stayouts, Rice Cultivation Society and much more. The Bundle is slated for release on the weekend of March 21st and will be available as a digital download for 2 weeks. It will also be paired with a live music performance by many of the bands to be held midway through the release on March 28th at The Velvet Lounge in Setauket. In addition 20% of all proceeds will go to support charity of Community Solidarity, the local chapter of Food Not Bombs.
