Inlet Concert Series

 Rain location Fern Park Pavilion

 July 4, 2014 - Fulton Chain Gang 7:30-10 pm

The Fulton Chain Gang blends modern country with some classics and southern rock for a show that’s enjoyable for all ages.  From the top notch entertainers to the high quality sound this band has it covered!  Not only have they proved themselves to be a band with staying power, but they have also showed that they have what it takes to rise to the top of the competitive regional music scene.

July 5, 2014 - Karen Savoca & Pete Heitzman 7-9 pm

Years of leading their all-original, dance-driven group imbued this duo with the power to sound like a full band, whether it’s pulsing funk or haunting ballad.  Electrifying, unique, and always uplifting, these improvisational performers possess “the fearlessness of a high wire act working without a net.”  Karen’s website:

July 12, 2014 - The Swamp Drivers 7-9 pm

“THE SWAMP DRIVERS” BAND has a totally different sound. (A SWAMPY DRIVIN ROCKIN BLUES kinda sound) YEP, you’ll be dancing. What would you see? Terry playing a 3 STRING BROOM GUITAR or playing SAX & GUITAR @ the same time. 4 different vocalist, one sounding like ZZ Top. A smokin harp player and driving bass player. I’ve played large music fests or we can play unpluged because the percussionist plays from a cajon drum to a standup kit or a full drum kit.  Their website: The Swamp Drivers

July 26, 2014 - Shrinking Violets 7-9 pm

Playing together as Shrinking Violets since 1993, Darryl and Julia Murdock completed their partnership by marrying in 1997. They have wandered throughout the Northeast, gracing such stages as Night Eagle Café and Coffeehouse in Oxford, NY and Caffe Lena’s in Saratoga Springs, NY. They have an instantly recognizable, yet undefinable singer/songwriter style that can best be described as ‘jazzy acoustic folk pop’. Both Darryl and Julia are classically trained and experienced in performing for many types of audiences.

August 2, 2014 - Jamie Notarthomas 6-8 pm

Jamie is a very sincere and inspired artist. His previous three original CD’s have progressively developed a mix of musical styles, influenced by what he refers to the twelve apostoles of rock and roll, such as John Lennon, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, James Taylor, Bob Marley, Leonard Cohen, Peter Gabriel, and Luis Jordan.

August 9, 2014 - Jonny Hirsch Band 6-8 pm

Jonny Hirsch is one of New York City’s most intriguing solo artists. The singer/saxophonist is often compared to the likes of Steely Dan and Karl Denson.  Fusing elements of rock, funk, jazz, and skat singing with a powerful voice and a dynamic saxophone, Jonny’s music has an original sound of its own, while staying true to its roots in new age blues and funk. This versatile composer and lyricist pays tribute to the great traditions of American rock and blues in his song writing, while the live show incorporates more improvisation. His website:

August 16, 2014 - Dan Berggren 6-8 pm

Dan Berggren has been collecting, writing and singing folk music of the Adirondacks for the past 30 years. Growing up in the mountains on the land farmed by his mother’s family, he’s worked in the woods on a forest ranger’s crew and a survey crew. Hearing stories and songs from local friends and neighbors, Dan has developed a style that captures the spirit of the mountains.  His website:

August 23, 2014 - Bill Staines 6-8 pm

“Any new song that can live comfortably beside the well-worn songs of folk tradition has a good chance of surviving the test of time. Such, we believe, are the songs of Bill Staines” — Charles “Sandy” Paton, Folk Legacy Records.  His website: Bill Staines

August 30, 2014 - Gwen Tracy Band 6-8 pm

Gwen Tracy is back on stage as The Gwen Tracy Band, with husband Chris Deuss on percussion/harmonica/mandolin, mom Bonnie Tracy on the bass, and dad Jim Tracy on vocals/guitar.  A longtime local favorite, and Old Forge girl, Tracy has been wowing music lovers for many years with her bluesy Joplin-like voice all over Central New York. She’s performed with the band Delia, musicians John Kribs and Orion Kribs, and most recently in duo’s with her dad, Jim Tracy, in father-daughter blues and folk-rock sessions.
