Uniphi Good, a Manhattan and Hamptons-based entertainment organization, is hosting their First Annual East End Music and Arts Festival on Friday, September 19, and Saturday, September 20, 2014. The two day affair will showcase a collection of cultural and entertainment events at several community venues to benefit local food pantries in Westhampton and East Hampton.

"The Hamptons is such an inspiring area for the arts, and the post-summer season out here is so amazing, we just knew that was the right time to pull together an incredible roster of amazing talent and cool events for our community celebrations, in the hopes of keeping the summer 'good' vibes and fun going through September for all," said Annie Balliro, the founder and CEO of Uniphi Good. "The fact that we will also be benefiting local charities and community organizations is SO important and a core value for everyone involved in our festival."

On Friday night, the festival will feature a special concert event at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center (WHBPAC) with spirited, collaborative performances from Grammy-nominated pedal steel guitar virtuoso Robert Randolph, "American Idol" alum Paul McDonald, Grammy-nominated rock band Tonic, singer-songwriter Toby Lightman and NYC-based Hurrah! A Bolt of Light!.

"I have been lucky enough to play many festivals in my career and can honestly say that I am the most excited about this one. To be in a lineup with such amazing artists, in such a beautiful area of the country, and raising money for great causes, it just doesn't get better than that," remarked Toby Lightman. "As a new homeowner in the Hamptons, I feel a sense of pride that I am able to take part in this great event from it's start. I know this is the beginning of a long love affair between the Hamptons and the arts in a way that no one out east has seen before!"

In addition to the concert, attendees can check out and purchase limited edition artwork created and signed by Ringo Starr, which will be displayed in the Auer Studio on the WHBPAC grounds. All proceeds from Starr's artwork will benefit the Lotus Foundation.

It's all about the youth on Saturday during a special "Art & Astronauts" Kids Day at Springs Community Presbyterian Church (5 Old Stone Highway, East Hampton). The free educational art project and lecture led by Commander Michael "LA" Lopez-Alegria will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
