2019 Concert Season

July 4:  Gap Mangione Big Band


An impressive repertoire of arrangements from swing-band era to modern big band and popular music. 

July 7:  Ross Hollow

Ross Hollow’s music makes you want to stand up, dance, sit down, laugh, tap your toes, hum along, snap your fingers, listen to the words, drink beer, attend church,  smell the rain, enjoy life more.  It has the kind of catchy melodies and verve that keeps you humming the songs long after you’ve heard them for the first time.  With roots in New England, the Southwest, Chicago, the Carolinas, Mississippi Delta, and Indiana, Ross Hollow’s music can transport you to all these places and more, with driving bass funkadelic, solid dobro twang, flamenco guitar riffs, wailing harmonica, scintillating ebony and ivory stylings, backwoods banjo rolls, and the backbeat that just won’t stop.

July 14:  Letizia and the Z Band

SAMMY Award-winner Letizia has been voted the best vocalist of Central New York, and has performed national anthems for NFL, NBA, and MLB teams in the U.S. and Canada.  Hailing from Syracuse, this 5-piece, high-energy dance band plays everything from the standards of the '40s to today's pop favorites.  You don't want to miss this one!

July 21:  Your American Jukebox

This group of talented, and highly experienced musicians based in the Rochester, New York, area performs all types of music in a variety of styles: jazz, swing, and big band, to name a few. Although recently founded, the band has already built up a solid reputation and following in the area.  (Ice Cream Social from 1-3 p.m.  Enjoy a sundae with all the toppings for $5.00.  All proceeds support the Sodus Bay Lighthouse.)

July 28:  John Dady and John Michael Ryan

August 4:  Panloco

Since 1995, this versatile, Western New York steel drum band has entertained with Caribbean, jazz, pop, and classical music . 

August 11:  It's My Party!

This very popular “teen” singing trio from Western New York is styled after the ’60s girls groups.  Their wonderful harmony is backed up by a talented band. The trio performs in character of the ’60s with tailored period dresses and hairstyles. The gentlemen in the back-up ensemble don thin-lapelled black suits. Their repertoire consists of the Sixties’ classic hits plus some original material. The group provides perfect family entertainment, transporting the audience to a simpler place in time when music was fun.  (Ice Cream Social from 1-3 p.m.  Enjoy a sundae with all the toppings for $5.00.  All proceeds support the Sodus Bay Lighthouse.)

August 18:  Heatwave Bluegrass

This talented trio of Max Flansburg, Brandon Masur, and Richie Colf form a traditional, high-energy bluegrass band featuring impressive picking and vocal harmonies.

August 25:  Loren Barrigar & Special Guest Joe Whiting

Loren started playing guitar when he was only four years old, and by the time he was six, played the Chet Atkins hit “Yackety Axe” in front of thousands of country music fans at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. He went on to study with Jimmy Atkins (Chet’s brother) which led to a touring career with his family band from Nashville to Las Vegas. Since settling down in Central New York, he has been in constant demand as a studio musician.

September 1:  The Krazy Firemen

The original members of this group, being avid participants in the concert and marching bands for local fire departments, would often get together in smaller groups to play area gigs.  Whether playing Strauss waltzes, circus marches, old time rock ’n’ roll, or country western, The Krazy Firemen deliver a wonderful performance.
