Calissa Sounds brings exclusive live entertainment under one roof to create the ultimate Mykonos meets the Hamptons music-driven mashup 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 in 2021. The trio bonded over their love of the Mykonian vibe and style of live performances they had experienced on the island over past summers.

“BCL Entertainment could not be more excited to be back in Water Mill for Calissa Sounds 2022.  Partnering with Calissa and the Civetta Hospitality team for another year was so natural after last year’s incredible season. We collectively aim to continue upping our game and bringing the best of music and hospitality to the Hamptons,” said BCL Entertainment Founder Bettie Levy.

Calissa Sounds will benefit the Southampton Volunteer Ambulance Corps., which is dedicated to emergency care and transportation of sick and injured persons within the Hamptons community and Headstrong, a non-profit that provides mental health care to veterans and first responders. A portion of proceeds from all performances will be donated to these two deserving groups.

Shows will take place outside in Calissa’s garden, rain or shine with a clear tent overhead.

Table reservations for Calissa Sounds can be made by visiting and by emailing   Table reservations of four begin at a $300 food and beverage spend per person and performance time will kick off at approximately 10pm.
