The Simons Family Funtime Band

Available for dances, weddings and parties, the Simons Family Funtime Band has been performing to delight of many for more than a dozen years. They have been featured at the Croton Point Hudson River Fesitval, but they are perhaps better known for playing free summer concerts at local parks, and a variety of community events in Croton-on-Hudson and the Town of Cortlandt.
