Fifty-eight-year-old real estate attorney Samuel Himmelstein is getting ready to rock next Friday at Lafayette Grill & Bar at 54 Franklin Street, as his band, the Love Handles, heads back to the stage after a six-month hiatus.

Himmelstein, a partner at real estate litigation firm Himmelstein McConnell Gribben Donoghue & Joseph, is part of a six-person band including his old college buddy, tenant advocate attorney Marty Silberman of Silberman Law Firm, 58, who plays the drums.

Himmelstein, who plays keyboard, sings lead on a few songs as well as harmony and back-up vocals, and Silberman had talked about forming a band for years before finally doing so in 2001.

The band plays music from the 1960s through early 1980s, including hits from Elvis Costello and the Grateful Dead.

The group has played at the Cutting Room and the Good Coffeehouse Music Parlor, in Park Slope and for the last three years has been the post-race entertainment at the Komen Race for the Cure in Central Park (see video below). TRD
