Councilman Ambrosino, ‘Dogs Of War’ Rock Out to Support Local Veterans

Town of Hempstead Councilman Edward Ambrosino invites neighbors to attend a benefit concert performed by the “Dogs of War,” a 10-member classic rock band that features Ambrosino, Nassau County Legislator Vincent Muscarella, Nassau County Legislator Laura Schaefer, Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino and other local government officials. The concert is being held at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 21 at Mulcahy’s of Wantagh.


Band members include Ambrosino (piano/guitar), Muscarella (guitar/vocals), Schaefer (vocals), Saladino (drums), Jonathan Crist (guitar/lead vocals), Patrick Owens (bass/vocals), Mark Ambrosino (drums/vocals), Mike Martino (lead guitar/vocals), Jeb Ambrosino (lead guitar) and Jack Vitale (percussion).


“As elected officials, it’s our duty to serve the people of our communities, but our mission on June 21 is to entertain them so we can give back to veterans who have done so much for all of us in protecting our freedoms as Americans,” Ambrosino said. “I invite everyone to come to Mulcahy’s for a fun-filled night with friends, rock ‘n’ and Dogs of War.”


The band performs a variety of classic rock and R&B hits, including favorites from The Allman Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band and much more. The band has been hosting this benefit concert for several years to support local veterans.


Admission is $25, and the band’s goal is to sell at least 500 tickets, with proceeds benefitting local veteran organizations. Mulcahy’s of Wantagh is located at 3232 Railroad Avenue in Wantagh. For information of how to purchase tickets, call Mulcahy’s at (516) 783-7500 or visit . Tickets can also be purchased at the event.


The ‘Dogs of War’ was created in honor of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who have served our nation,” We’re excited for their next gig and hope it brings smiles to their fans and much-needed support to our local veterans.
