-- No one can deny that Michael Jackson was the King of Pop and one of the all around greatest performers and musicians in the modern era. June 25 will mark the second year anniversary of his death and an opportunity to remember some of the music and performances he delivered. To those who have ever been to one, a live MJ performance is an experience like no other in creativity, planning, and display of musical artistry. There is no way to attend such a concert today but for the anniversary of his death one of the closest MJ live performance experiences has been brought to Long Island.
The Blacksmith Tavern in Smithtown in conjunction with FW Events and VIP Events will be presenting a live Michael Jackson tribute show featuring MJX and dance group - one of the world leading Michael Jackson tribute shows. The show includes their 80s 5-piece live band delivering Michael Jackson music live. Several of Michael Jackson songs will be performed live including Billie Jean, Beat it, Who's Bad, and Thriller included its most popular dance sequences in the most.
The MJX performances combined with the live band will lead off the night from 9pm. Following that the band will deliver some of their most acclaimed live 80s songs. An 80s DJ will round out the dance party late into the night. This is indeed expected to be a "thrilling" night. MJ paraphernalia including the famous single white hand glove is expected to be available for purchase at the event. Also, representatives from some of Michael's charities may be available to receive donations from interested patrons.
