Ernie Canadeo, Long Island Music Hall Of Fame chairman, commented:

“We are thrilled to present many highlights from our past induction ceremonies in this 90-minute presentation, presented by Jovia Financial Credit Union, and benefiting the Long Island Music Hall Of Fame’s educational and scholarship programs. It is a testament to Long Island’s diverse musical heritage with appearances and performances by so many world-renowned rock, folk, jazz, blues, hip-hop and classical artists. This New Year’s Eve presentation represents a finale to 2020 and a new beginning to live events in the new year.”

Zebra’s Randy Jackson will host the show and he had the following to say about it:

“I was very surprised and flattered to be asked to host the 2020 LIMHOF ‘Best Of The Award Galas’. The talent highlighted in this show far exceeds any other ‘regional’ Hall Of Fame, in both diversity and worldwide appeal.
