Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced that Genessa & The Selena Experience will be performing at Eisenhower Park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in East Meadow on Monday, July 25th. The show will begin at 8:00 p.m. Admission is free.
Upon the 20th anniversary of Selena’s passing, the formation of this incredible class of musicians came to be. Right out of New York, NY, a locale known amongst musicians as the “mecca” for professional cover bands, “Genessa & The Selena Experience” was created! Their musical history spans decades and genres but with lead vocalist, Genessa Escobar, she has taken her childhood dreams and memories of Selena and made them come alive on-stage. Recently “Genessa & The Selena Experience” has appeared on National Television for TELEMUNDO “Un Nuevo Dia,” local television networks such as; TELEMUNDO NY “Acesso Total,” and News 12.
Much of the programming at the Lakeside Theatre is made possible through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which are proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received more than ten million dollars from the Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which also has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
