Move and Groove to a live combo performing the music of such greats as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Grand Funk, Jim Croce, the Eagles and many, many more.

On Saturday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. Congregation Tifereth Israel (CTI) in Glen Cove presents the six-piece band, Spontaneous Combustion, in its third annual dance party for all ages. Family groups are encouraged to come and enjoy the fun together. The public is welcome to attend as well.

Spontaneous Combustion, formed more than 20 years ago, is inspired by the ensemble’s enthusiasm for performing music of the 50s, 60s and 70s. In addition to classic rock, the group also plays oldies and country music.

The band’s name reflects the fact that the original members were all volunteer firemen in various Long Island communities. Two of the current members are still active volunteer firemen. The group consists of keyboardist Carl Schreiber, a Glen Head resident and CTI member; Ken Lang of Woodbury on guitar and vocals; Steve Jones of Mineola on guitar and vocals; Frank Chester of Williston Park on bass guitar and vocals; Don Amira of East Williston on percussion and vocals; and Mickey Giehl of Setauket on drums and vocals.

Admission to the Spontaneous Combustion dance party at CTI on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. is $20 for adults, ($25 at the door) and $10 for those 18 and under. Soft drinks and snacks are included in the admission price and a cash bar will be available. All proceeds from the dance party support CTI and its programs. Reservations are requested by Sept. 7.
