Taylor Dayne, Exposé & More Perform in Free Concert

It was a highly anticipated show for months. Taylor Dayne, Exposé, Betty Dee of Sweet Sensation and Amanda Ayala from the hit tv show, The Voice, all performed on one stage. The Tuckahoe Music Festival was held on September 24, 2016 and it drew crowds from all over.

Amanda Ayala opened the show and stole the hearts of all the parents. Betty Dee of Sweet Sensation hit the stage and sang the popular hit song, “Hooked On You.” The three original members of Exposé then came out to perform their set and kept the audience dancing. Taylor Dayne’s powerful vocals closed the show with her hit song “Tell It To My Heart.”

The concert was hosted by legendary radio host, Al Bandiero. The three artists had over 30 Billboard Top 100 Hits put together, the most Tuckahoe has ever seen.

Sandra was blown away by the concert. “I felt like I was 20 again. Great memories. Thank you for putting together such an amazing concert.” Charlie, from Rochester, boasted that he drove 8 hours to see the free concert. “I dreamed about this as a kid. The only thing better was getting to share the live moment with my twelve year old daughter.”

The concert was sponsored solely by the Generoso Pope Foundation, making admission free for anyone who attended. The concert coincided with the three day annual St Pio Feast and Festival. It quickly converted to the concert at 9pm. “Seeing Depot Square filled was amazing,” Barbara Pope said. “Everyone came together and had a great time. We reminisced about those great 80’s memories, and better yet, made more memories that will last a lifetime. That’s what it’s all about.”

“We already started planning next year’s concert,” AJ Pope said in a statement. “As soon as we got to work the next morning, we sat down and said ‘Alright. Bigger and better. Let’s go.'”
