ENDICOTT, N.Y. - A local restaurant owner is adding a venue for patrons to "En-Joie" events during the summer.
Joey DeGennaro, owner of Joey's Pizza and DeGennaro's Restaurant at En-Joie Golf Club will be hosting events at the new Blue Moon Sound Stage located behind the restaurant.
The venue holds 1,000 people inside the pavilion, as well as an additional thousand that can stand outside.
It's hosting a wide variety of events such as mixed martial arts and a Saliva concert in June, Fleetwood Mack and Kiss tribute bands in July along with Cans, Clams, Cornhole and Karaoke every Thursday starting June 1st.
Organizers are looking to make Endicott more exciting by pairing events with a new restaurant menu.
"We believe that Endicott really needs this venue space. There isn't much to do in terms of entertainment in Endicott. We're looking to change that and bring more jobs to the community and an opportunity for good entertainment," said Event Manager Dana Barber.
"We're going to have some classic Italian dishes like Chicken Saltimbocca, a beef duo and we're going to throw a little twist on Southern Style with Chicken and Waffles," said Chef Dominic Cerasaro.
Another highlight event is the Bridal Show with a Twist.
DeGennaro's is throwing a free wedding for a local couple, that will also serve as a live bridal show for brides to be.
DeGennaro's Restaurant opens on April 25th.
