The Four-Piece Band Performs in the Parrish Art Museum’s Lichtenstein Theater on Friday, May 26, 6pm 

Hopefully Forgiven, playing original music that distill 100 years of American musical styles from bluegrass to rock, kicks off Memorial Day weekend in the Parrish’s Lichtenstein Theater on Friday, May 26, at 6pm. Led by singer/songwriters Telly Karoussos and ‘Alabama Brad’ Penuel, Hopefully Forgiven transcends the Americana genre with their original songs and arrangements that have attracted a devoted multi-generational fan base. 

The group consists of Penuel and Karoussos on electric and acoustic guitars, Benjamin Goodale playing his home-made stand-up electric bass, and Kevin Foran on drums. At the Parrish, they’ll play original songs that lend a modern take to styles including rock, blue grass, country western, and rockabilly—with powerful lead guitar riffs and driving rhythms. The concert will also include arrangements of covers by bands like the Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, The Band, and Van Morrison. Hopefully Forgiven recently released Soaked, its debut EP of original songs, available on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, and other platforms.

The group was formed in 2014, shortly after a chance meeting through an internet post when Penuel offered his Brooklyn railroad apartment to Karoussos in exchange for watching his dog. Realizing they shared a passion for music and surfing, the duo soon began working on arrangements of favorite songs, and Penuel introduced Karoussos to bluegrass. Since then, the group—an East End favorite—has performed throughout the North and South Forks.
