Darlene DeLay Graham and the Shades of Green Band

Darlene DeLay Graham has become one of Long Islandís premier performers for the early childhood crowd, but over the past two years she has expanded her audience to the entire family. Working with such venues as the Long Island Childrenís Museum she had begun to expand from a solo act to a full band. In doing so she has drawn on the talents of such artists at Chris Graham on vocals, ukulele, percussion and guitar, Mike Scielzi on electric bass, Ken Clayton on lead electric guitar and vocals, and the rhythmic talents of Angelo Buonomo on drums. With their support Darlene has broadened the scope of the music to include rock, Celtic, pop and so much more from original to traditional music fun. Families will tap, dance, clap and cuddle up together to the sounds of Darlene Graham and the Shades of Green Band.
