Ashanti, Fat Joe, Wyclef Jean, Samantha Ronson & More To Perform At Calissa

Calissa in Water Mill has partnered with BCL Entertainment for a third summer season of music-filled Calissa Sounds nights beginning on Thursday, July 27 with Ashanti and Fat Joe. Electronic Duo Gorgon City will headline on Thursday, August 3. Wyclef Jean will return to Calissa for the third year in a row on Thursday, August 17. Samantha Ronson will spin on August 24 and Sigala will cap off the summer season with a show on August 31. Performances will kick off at 10 PM.

Calissa Sounds brings exclusive live entertainment under one roof to create the ultimate Mykonos meets the Hamptons mashup music-driven experience. The series made its debut at Calissa in 2021 after a conversation between restaurateurs James Mallios, Kylie Monagan and live event producer and founder of BCL Entertainment Bettie Levy. The trio bonded over their love of the Aegean vibe and style of live performances they had experienced on the island over past summers.

Last year, sales from Calissa Sounds helped raise over $10,000 for local and first responder charities including the Southampton Volunteer Ambulance, Southampton STARR Aqua Center, and The Headstrong Foundation.

“We so appreciate the work done by East End first responders throughout the year – several of whom are friends and colleagues,” said Calissa Managing Partner, James Mallios. This year’s charitable partner for Calissa Sounds is the Southampton Volunteer Ambulance.

Calissa will also host Cristo and Rafael playing the music of the Gipsy Kings for the seventh summer in a row on Sunday, August 6 in addition to debuting two new experiences in July and August with DJs spinning in the lounge and on the terrace. One Tribe will take place on Fridays with DJ Sava featuring desert house music and Greek Riviera will follow on Saturdays featuring Greek and Mediterranean music.
