Mulchay's pub


The easy-to-get-to venue, established in 1965, is located in Wantagh and is a stone’s throw from the train station. The well-known venue has consistently hosted some of the biggest events and happenings on Long Island over the past year (and in fact, many years).

A few of Mulcahy’s events this year included a 90s night, disco and freestyle performances, the annual Halloween Party, Thanksgiving Eve celebration, the Ugly Sweater party and the upcoming New Year’s Eve festivities.

It lives up to its motto of “good, clean fun,” for patrons over 21.

Some of the most popular cover bands that have residencies at this venue, and play there often, include Big Shot, Zac Brown Tribute Band, Shilelagh Law, and Badfish.

Incidentally, the Long Island Press, who declared Mulcahy’s the best in 2016, noted that the top voted nightclub in 2018 is Islip’s Treme Blues and Jazz Club.

Long Island’s Tina DeCara Releases New Single Titled “Solo”

December 8, 2018:


According to Tina, the song “Solo” is about “being content with yourself and loneliness.”


Tina DeCara Long Island singer


The song’s is uplifting, and according to Music Mayhem Magazine “will have you singing and dancing along for weeks after the first listen. This new single is all about loving yourself when you’re at your loneliest. Quite often, we’ve set upon a path of success that leads us down a path that only we can travel. This is especially true when pursuing the art of music and pushing onwards to the success as a recording artist, with all its highs and lows.


That’s how “Solo” came to be when Tina was feeling low and alone with the need to share her internal struggles in a format for her to push on her own path of success.”

Tina added “I wrote this song when I was feeling down about not having people to rely on. Then I realized I have my music. That’s where Solo became! Then I recorded it on my phone and went to my friends studio in queens and exploded all over the mic. I hope others connect with this song and realize how powerful music can be. You can always count on music and yourself.”
