Amber Ferrari: Amber is the four-time winner of "Best Singer from Long Island" by the "Best of Long Island" competition, and her band has won "Best Band- Noncover" four consecutive times. When it comes to covering songs by Madonna, Janis Joplin and Pat Benatar, Amber is a true pro, and the same holds true for her own original material.
