Remember those good ole days when there were free concerts every Monday night on the Lake House Stage in Albany’s Washington Park?
Well, they might be coming back next summer…
After nearly a decade without the popular summer concert events in Washington Park – which were originally produced by Mona Golub and Second Wind Productions and then later by Maura Swift – Park Playhouse is working to build a new Monday Music Series.
And earlier this month they tested the waters with a single, stand-alone concert presented by Park Playhouse and the Palace Theatre, in association with the City of Albany’s Department of Special Events. The free concert on Monday, August 17, featured Coxsackie-based jam-band faves Conehead Buddha with Albany soul-funk band the Victory Soul Orchestra opening the show.
