For a decade, the Great South Bay Music Festival has brought a diverse roster of musicians to Shorefront Park in Patchogue, becoming a summer staple on Long Island. The four-day festival concludes Sunday with Graham Nash, Railroad Earth, Colin Hay, NRBQ and John Sebastian.

“The footprint has gotten a lot bigger since we began,” said festival co-founder and producer Jim Faith. “When we started we had two stages, now we are up to four. Everything has grown immensely.”

Folk Americana pop band Miles to Dayton has been playing the festival since day one and has grown along with it. They delivered a hot set on the Dream Stage on Saturday afternoon warming up the crowd before Main Squeeze, Dopapod, Blues Traveler and Umphrey’s McGee.

“We’ve reached many new ears by participating in the festival year after year,” said guitarist/vocalist Jon Preddice of Port Jefferson Station. “It’s been great exposure for us.”

Preddice cited the diversity of the artist roster as the key to the festival’s success and longevity. Click Here for the full article
