Roslyn - On May 23, the acclaimed band 10,000 Maniacs performed a headlining concert at My Father's Place in Roslyn on Long Island.
It was a neat balance of their smash hits as well as newer material. 10,000 Maniacs is made up of Mary Ramsey on lead vocals and viola, drummer Jerome Augustyniak, keyboard player Dennis Drew, guitarist Jeff Erickson, bassist Steven Gustafson, and guitarist John Lombardo.

Their haunting version of their smash hit "Because The Night" was sheer bliss, where Ramsey excelled on viola and showcased her rich, lilting vocals.
There were no gimmicks with the 10,000 Maniacs. Just a talented band that allowed their pure, natural talent shine and that resonated well with the Long Island audience. There is a rawness and authenticity to their music, which makes it even more compelling than it is.
