The Capital Region is not short of live music during the summer months. Pay attention and you’ll find some gems, like the free weekly concert series hosted by Colonie’s Frank A. Leak Amphitheater for the Arts in Cook Park.
Each concert takes place on a Tuesday throughout the summer starting at 6:30 pm. A different genre of music is represented with each concert, with some artists returning from previous years.
Kicking things off this season will be The Beatles tribute band, Across The Pond, on June 10th. The addition of this band out of Glens Falls seems most apropos with the recent announcement of Paul McCartney playing at Albany’s Times Union Center in July. The remainder of the line-up promises an eclectic assortment; from polka to swing, from Sinatra to The Beatles, and from country to Celtic.
And, speaking of Celtic, the ever-popular Hair of the Dog is slated to close out the series on August 26th.
