Amber Ferrari at Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall: There is a reason why Amber Ferrari has been voted “Best Singer from Long Island” multiple years in a row, and her live concert at Mulcahy’s, where she paid homage to music from the 80’s (Pat Benatar, Melissa Etheridge and Heart), as well as Madonna was the reason why. Ferrari is a true mini-tower of vocal power.
