On Saturday, August 26th, 2023, the grounds at Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve were transformed into an outdoor concert venue, as Nathan Dean and The Damn Band made Smithtown the last stop on their coast-to-coast Unsupervised Tour. The free concert was sponsored by Cosentino Companies, and organized by David Capo in conjunction with Smithtown Supervisor, Ed Wehrheim the Town Council, and the team at Hoyt Farm. Local families packed the parking lot with tailgate-style picnic setups, while residents wishing to be closer to the band, set up beach chairs and blankets to enjoy the live performance. The Show was emceed by David Capo.
“We were ecstatic when we learned that Nathan Dean and the Damn Band wanted to return to Smithtown. We were doubly blessed when we learned that Cosentino Companies would be sponsoring the cost of the event so it could be brought to the community absolutely free. I’d also like to thank and acknowledge David Capo, who originally introduced us to the band, in addition to the team at Hoyt Farm, the Parks Department and Public Safety. This band is the real deal… My whole family was dancing on the grass at one point. I look forward to planning their return next Summer.” – Supervisor Ed Wehrheim
