It was just as much fun watching the audience as it was watching Brave Combo churn out their wild ‘n’ wonderful brand of alt-polka in the middle of Lake George’s Shepard Park on Wednesday, August 12. And that’s really saying something.
Locals and tourists alike were drawn into the park by the exuberant strains of Carl Finch and his Denton, Texas-based band. They would wander in, stand and stare at the bandstand for a moment and then almost every one of them would break out into a smile. A big smile.
