The Bus Duty Band will be performing at the Black and Blue Seafood Chophouse on Friday night, June 22nd from 9:30 until the last person drops!

Long Island's Bus Duty Band

According to band guitarist Rick Purdy, “Huntington asked and we listened!”.   And that means his band will be playing at the Black and Blue Seafood Chophouse, located at 65 Wall Street, in Huntington.

The Long Island band, Bus Duty   is what can happen when a group of public-school teachers get together and form a rock band.

Bus Duty   focuses on pop and rock classics from the 60s through 90s and a lot of music from today. The band got its start when a few teachers at an elementary school (Sunquam Elementary, which is part of the Half Hollow Hills School District) started to perform for school events and fund-raisers.

The teachers had so much fun and realized they sounded quite good. To make matters even better, there was an instant and great chemistry within the band.

Make no mistake – the band was not assembled with rock – “wanna be’s” who were not qualified or ready to gig. Three of the Bus Duty   members are full-time music teachers and they and the other band members have extensive experience in gigging in other bands.

Anyone who has witnessed a Bus Duty   show knows that the band rocks hard, performing music ranging from 70s rock classics, disco and funk, to 90s and today’s alternative hits, all sprinkled in with the bands most popular original music.

So tell your friends and get a sitter because this even promises to be the Summer-Slam 2018 Kickoff!
