Music on the Lake
Friday, Aug 19, 2016, 6:00pm
Megunticook Lake, Camden
Throbbing funk grooves, fiery Balkan brass, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops make Slavic Soul Party! NYC’s official #1 brass band for BalkanSoul GypsyFunk. SSP! has created an acoustic mash-up of Balkan and Gypsy sounds with North American music, weaving the gospel, techno, funk, dub, jazz, and Latin influences of New York’s neighborhoods. This 9-piece band will perform an unprecedented, free musical happening on Megunticook Lake. Put in at Bog Bridge or Gypsy Landing and use the following coordinates to locate the dock where the band will be playing.
Because the show is WATER ACCESS ONLY, those without a watercraft may rent one via Maine Sport Outfitters; rentals must be arranged by noon by calling the Outdoor Programs Department at 236-8797 for pickup at the Bog Bridge on Route 105. Renters are asked to make arrangements for return of the watercraft at pick up time.
The many free events offered every year by Bay Chamber serve to fulfill its mission to make high quality music experiences accessible to all our community. Those unable to access the lake concert can see the performance by Slavic Soul Party on the Camden Village Green early that same day (1PM).
