Carl Fischer, current horn player for Billy Joel, Diana Ross, and numerous others, returns to Freeport for a Sandy Remembrance Concert at “Hudson on the Mile”.

FREEPORT, NY – (Released for Press July 19, 2013) – It was announced today that Freeport, Long Island, NY born musician Carl Fischer, whose horn playing can be heard on a virtual who’s who of pop music concert tours including Billy Joel, Elton John, and currently with Diana Ross, will be performing a special concert with his band the Organic Groove Ensemble in remembrance of the effects to Freeport, and other areas of Long Island, during Super-storm Sandy. The concert will be held at Hudson On The Mile, located at 340 Woodcleft Ave in Freeport, NY on Thursday August 1st from 7pm-10pm

Carl is uniquely qualified to host such an event, as his house and contents were damaged as a result of the storm, as it was situated on the Nautical Mile (Guy Lombardo ave) across the canal from the upcoming concert venue. Carl was even interviewed on air by Shari Einhorn for local news coverage. Whenever Carl Fischer blows his trumpet, kudos seem to follow. Billy Joel, in whose band Fischer has performed for the past eight years, called Fischer a “gifted musician” while the late jazz legend Maynard Ferguson, who also employed Carl, called him “one of the best jazz trumpeters today.”

“Super-storm Sandy took away some stuff, but it didn’t break my spirit” Carl said. “It’s amazing to see that I’ve come back to a Freeport stronger and more vibrant than before. I’ve performed and enjoyed spending time on this stretch of land for countless years, so I’m excited to have the opportunity to get the Mile Grooving once again.”
