The Long Island Music Hall of Fame is an American "hall of fame" organization, whose business office is located in Melville, New York. It was incorporated in July 2005, under the New York State Board of Regents, as a nonprofit organization and holds a provisional charter to operate as a museum in the state of New York. Expansion plans include a museum of Long Island music history, a multimedia resource center, an educational facility and outreach program, and will also serve as a venue for musical performances.[1]

A New Home in Wyandanch Village[edit]

In 2014, the Long Island Music Hall Of Fame (LIMHOF) was invited by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone to operate a museum/education center in the new Wyandanch Village Revitalization Project.[2]


Long Island musical heritage[edit]

The Hall of Fame gives the 'Long Island Sound Award' to musical performers who have contributed to "Long Island's musical heritage",[3] and held its first inaugural induction gala on October 15, 2006 at The Patchogue Theatre in Patchogue, New York.[4]

The second induction ceremony was held at The Garden City Hotel in Garden City, New York, on October 20, 2008.

The third induction ceremony was held at Oheka Castle in Huntington on November 16, 2010.[5]

The fourth induction ceremony was held at The Paramount in Huntington on October 18, 2012.[6]

The most recent induction ceremony took place at the Paramount in Huntington, New York on October 23, 2014.[7]

It has been the decision of the Hall to define "Long Island" geographically, adding Brooklyn and Queens counties in addition to the more common definition, which typically only refers to Suffolk and Nassau.
