Bringing Back Long Island Booking was a Long Island booking company that booked many local and touring bands during 2007 and 2008.
In the winter of 2007, Travis Mcgee, Anthony Purpura, and Vinny Buffalino began booking shows at The Vintage Lounge in Levittown, New York under the name Bringing Back Long Island Booking. The three went on running shows until, eventually, Tom Angenbroich joined in. They booked at The Vintage Lounge almost twice a week from Febuary 2007 to October 2007. BBLI and The Vintage Lounge were a haven for local kids, a place where they could hang out without participating in illegal activities. They provided many kids and music scene members with entertainment weekly for months of their lives, and brought long islanders from all corners of the island together as The Vintage Lounge Scene.
BBLI also booked shows at The Crazy Donkey numerous times for local showcases as well as with bands like Sing It Loud, Patent Pending, A Rocket To The Moon and more. BBLI also handled the booking for the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Beach in Oyster Bay and Islip Pavilion.
In September of 2008, BBLI came to an end, due to Travis McGee and Thomas Angenbroich's joining up with Club Loaded to be show promoters for the larger company. They still book at the same venues, but are managed by Club Loaded's management. To contact them about shows, go to Tom's | myspace.
