Wyclef Jean

Calissa in Water Mill has partnered with BCL Entertainment to launch a can’t miss, eight-week live-music series called Calissa Sounds beginning on Friday, July 16th. Calissa Sounds will launch with a live performance by Wyclef Jean on the 16th, followed by deep house electronic duo Bob Moses Club Set on July 23rd,  Armand Van Helden on July 30th, Capital Cities DJ Set on August 6th, Questlove on August 13th, Rev Run X Ruckus on August 20th, DJ Cassidy on August 27th, and St. Lucia and RAC will perform a collaborative DJ set together for the first time ever at Calissa on September 3rd to close out the season.

Calissa Sounds will bring exclusive live entertainment under one roof to create the ultimate Mykonos meets the Hamptons mashup music-driven experience. Conceptualized by three New Yorkers, Calissa Sounds was born after a conversation between restaurateurs James Mallios, Kylie Monagan of Civetta Hospitality and live event producer & Founder of BCL Entertainment Bettie Levy. The trio bonded over their love of the Mykonian vibe and style of live performances they had experienced on the island over past summers.

They concluded they wanted to bring an unmatched experience back to patrons, clients, friends, and family who missed vibrant dining out with live music for the past 16 months. Calissa’s expansive outdoor terrace allows for a safe set-up to have room to listen to music while conversing with friends. Enter BCL Entertainment, producing live entertainment and branded partnerships for well over a decade, the company saw the beauty in Calissa’s location, energy, and incredible team, and the joining of forces was a natural next step.
