On October 7th, LIMEHOF proudly presents the induction of “The Illusion,” a band that defied the odds and captured the hearts of music lovers on Long Island and beyond.

Under the guidance of hit-writing producer Jeff Barry, The Illusion achieved chart-topping success with their hit “Did You See Her Eyes?” and went on to release three albums, with the first selling over 200,000 copies. The band shared the stage with legends like Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and many more. Discover their remarkable journey and celebrate their induction into LIMEHOF.
