Music By The Beach
Cooney, dubbed “Irish America’s Favorite Son” by the New York Times, sang familiar Irish favorites (and at least one song in Italian!) as well originals and newer songs.
Members of his multi-talented band also took the spotlight.
Adding to the informal evening, Cooney also told jokes and often got the crowd singing and clapping along. Later he greeted fans in the streets as he visited with friends in the neighborhood.
The concert was presented by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation as part of a whole series of free summer programs in Rockaway.
