1910 Fruitgum Co. Names Vallone Honorary Member

On August 9, Councilmember Peter F. Vallone Jr. joined The 1910 Fruitgum Company – which had several Top 100 hits in the 1960s – on stage for two songs during the band’s Astoria Waterfront Concert on the Great Lawn in Astoria Park. Vallone, an avid musician, played bass guitar during lively renditions of “Happy Together” and “I’m A Believer”.  The councilmember has provided funding for the concerts, which are organized by the Central Astoria Local Development Coalition (CALDC) throughout the summer, for several years. “I grew up listening to great bands like The 1910 Fruitgum Company, so it’s a real privilege to become an honorary member and share the stage with such a historic group,” said Vallone.
