Streetwise Double Album Release Party To Benefit Leukemia And Lymphoma Society

Brooklyn-born, Riverhead-based singer/songwriter Raymond Castronovo recently announced Streetwise’s double-album release party to benefit the the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society starting at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6, at the historic Suffolk Theater, 118 E Main St. in Riverhead.
The ticketed event will include a live performance by Castronovo and his band, Streetwise, of their original music from their first two albums. Tickets are $55 with a cash bar and are available on the Suffolk Theater website.

Eighteen years ago, Castronovo was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. After receiving chemotherapy treatment, he lives today cancer-free. He attributes his survival to the treatment that was developed from countless hours of research and financial contributions to scientific developments made possible through the LLS.

Castronovo stated, “I have witnessed first-hand that it is crucial to continuously evolve medical treatments through research and expand care options and comfort for patients. LLS is at the forefront of those goals.”

To date, Castronovo has raised more than $31,000 towards his goal of $50,000 for the benefit.

Castronovo invites friends, family and fellow Riverhead residents to celebrate the first two Streetwise albums. During the benefit, Streetwise will perform their debut album, Crossing Bridges, as well as from their new EP, The Other Side, which will be released on May 6. 

Streetwise includes Raymond Castronovo as the singer/songwriter and guitarist, Joe Martinez (Chubby Checker, Irene Cara) on bass, Paul Glazer on lead guitar, Carl Obrig on saxophone, Linda Mackley on drums and Heather Simon on backup vocals. 

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a nonprofit charitable organization founded in 1949, is the largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting blood cancer in the world. The LLS’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s lymphoma and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families
