Staten Island Invades Brooklyn

Four Staten Island bands cross the Verrazano, and bring their brand of truth to Brooklyn’s Way Station

Forgotten Island, represent! Four Staten Island musical acts do Shaolin proud during The Way Station’s first ever Staten Island Invades Brooklyn event on Saturday, October 18, from 8PM to 12AM. The lineup features the fingerstyle guitar of Vinny Bunnicelli, the seven-piece apocalyptic Americana band Carl Gallagher and the Off-Track Bettors, the dream-punk sounds of Yeti, and rounding out the evening is fusion jam band Tom Cintulla & the Buffalo 24.
Staten Island has brought us a range of music from folk singer and activist Joan Baez to hip hop legends the Wu-Tang Clan. Come enjoy Staten Island’s newest sonic wave October 18 as these four bands cross the Verrazano, and bring their brand of truth to Brooklyn’s Way Station.
