The Riverhead BID sponsored an oldies concert Saturday evening on the historic downtown Peconic Riverfront.

The parking lot and greens on the edges of the boardwalk were full of young and old alike enjoying the beautiful summer evening, and music that took them back to the good old days.


The first group to perform was The Acchords with Tommy McManus, Phil Point, Billy Rigulbuto and Vinny Pizzo. They are considered one of New York’s top oldies group, with smooth harmonies. In 2011, the Acchords received the New Jersey Music Festival award as the greatest and most original sounding group of artists for keeping the music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s alive.

The second group was the Jukebox Heroes Live featuring The Mahoney Brothers, who performed stopping impersonations, a Rock and Roll Review with high tech visuals and covers of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Beach Boys, the Blues Brothers and more.
