Growing up on Long Island, King Neptune was immersed in a place deeply rooted in music. It was a blessing to be able to experience what felt like an explosion of music and culture through the early 2000s. However, watching that artistic community turn over and fade with the records its produced has been harrowing to witness. Watching venues close, bands breaking up, and a once bustling live music scene diminish has sparked King Neptunes initiative to bring spirit back to a place he has always respected.
Ive witnessed beauty grow and blossom from this island, and Ive seen a community of people gather behind something with such a passion and sense of self that it gives me chills, explains Kenny. We can be complacent or we can contribute. King Neptune is my contribution and for the first time in years Ive finally found a place to rest my head.
