Lake George’s Docks get Rocked at 200th Anniversary Concert

Lake George celebrated the 200th Anniversary of the steamboats that are a staple of the Adirondack vacation town. The three boats – Minni-haha, Mohican and Lac du Saint Sacrement were docked and boxed in the stage so attendees could watch from the dock or on one of the historic steamboats. Perfect weather and clear skies brought out the crowds and the bands took it from there. Capital Zen kicked off the day with intense ska/funk energy with horns a-blazing for the first set of the day. Goose followed and their perfectly crafted songs and jams were highlighted in a cover of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” and the smooth rock original “Creatures.” Mister F led off their set with the “Family Feud theme,” continuing their summer series of TV show themes to open their sets and added in the “Goldeneye 007 Dam Theme” later on.  Formula 5 capped the night with the first local performance of “Hot Box” in over 2 years, as well as a debut cover of Widespread Panic’s “Disco.”

The music keeps rocking this coming weekend with Adirondack Independence Festival taking place at Charles R. Wood Park on September 2 & 3, featuring Twiddle, Kung Fu, Pink Talking Fish, Hayley Jane and the Primates, Formula 5, Mister F, Capital Zen and many more. Tickets are on sale now
