A Night to Rock, with a former "SNL" band leader and members of the "Saturday Night Live" band, is coming to Bay Street Theater, Saturday, June 20th at 8 p.m.

The musical Hamptons event will feature the G.E. Smith, who is one of the most highly sought after blues and rock guitarists worldwide. Smith has played with Hall and Oates and Bob Dylan, but is probably best known for his time as the leader of the "Saturday Night Live" band. He led the iconic band for 10 years, from 1985 to 1995. The talented guitarist even received an Emmy Award for his work with "SNL," and many of the show's best musical surprise moments came from when Smith invited guitar legends, including Eddie Van Halen, David Gilmour, Lonnie Mack, Dave Edmonds, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy, to join the band. The performance alongside Buddy Guy eventually resulted in Smith's 1996 Grammy-nominated "Buddy Guy Live: The Real Deal with G.E. Smith & The Saturday Night Live Band."

Tickets begin at $69.

Bay Street Theater is located at 1 Bay Street in Sag Harbor. For more information, call 631-725-9500 or visit www.baystreet.org.

The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didnít change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
