FREE: Bands Announced for Lake George Arts Project’s Summer Concert Series
Sponsored by the fine folks at the Lake George Arts Project, the annual Wednesday Night Summer Concert Series is back again this summer. The summer concerts take place at 7:30pm on Wednesday evenings in July through August at Shepard Park in Lake George. The concerts take place rain of shine, and admission is free.
Here’s the complete schedule for the 2016 Wednesday Night Summer Concert Series:
July 6: Driftwood
The popular Binghamton-based band has a rock n’ roll soul and a folk-art mind.
July 13: Professor Louie & the Crowmatix
The Woodstock-based band led by Prof. Louie (aka, Aaron Hurwitz, who produced the final albums of the Band) is joined by the Rock of Ages horn section.
July 20: The California Honeydrops
They wowed the crowd at Bonnie Raitt’s concert at the Palace Theatre last month, and now they’re back with more of their funky blend of R&B, Southern soul, Delta blues and New Orleans second-line syncopation.
July 27: The John Jorgenson Quintet
The multiple Grammy Award-winning guitarist and instrumentalist – who has collaborated with everyone from Luciano Pavarotti to Bob Dylan – leads his acclaimed Gypsy jazz band.
August 3: Dustbowl Revival
The eight-piece Los Angeles-based Americana roots orchestra rolls into town in support of their new album With a Lampshade On.
August 10: The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra
Jamgrass Art-Rock? Jazzgrass Prog-Fusion? Rush-loving violinist-vocalist Lisi Wright and her bandmates have drawn comparisons to Dixie Dregs, Mahavishnu Orchestra and the Flecktones.
August 17: The Alex Meixner Band
Punk-meets-polka as Grammy nominated frontman/producer/showman extraordinaire Alex Mexiner leads the band, playing trumpet with his right hand while handling the bass line with his left on the accordion.
August 31: Koehler & Kelly
The music of Gretchen Koehler and Daniel Kelly blends the raw energy of authentic Celtic and New England-style fiddling with the nuanced lyricism of jazz piano.
