45 RPM NY - The Band, The Legend

We are saddened by the loss of Danny Calvagna, the lead singer of 45RPM NY, a long island cover band who sung the happiest AM songs of the seventies. Danny and his team brought happiness to so many long islanders and others around the tri-state area. He will surely be missed. Covid has claimed so many of our loved ones!
Here is a list of songs in their repertoire.
