Free Live Stream Concert: Hot Club of Saratoga

The CVW Long Lake Public Library invites all Adirondack Park residents and visitors to join us as we host our first Live Stream Concert on November 21st at 7 pm. From their living room to yours, the Hot Club of Saratoga, the Capital Region’s premier gypsy swing ensemble, plays a repertoire that reflects the spirit and style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in The Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Most prominently developed in 1930’s and 40’s Paris, this genre has been kept alive through a long line of gypsy jazz artists since that time. Most of the tunes Hot Club of Saratoga plays were written or recorded by Django at some time in his musical life, hot swing music of the 1920’3, 30’s and 40’s.

The concert will be streamed using YouTube Events. Watch the show on your computer, tablet, phone or smart TV anywhere you may be. The library will be providing tips on making the connection to the concert through our Facebook page.

Van Morrison Tribute Concert in Long Lake NY

The Town of Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a tribute concert to Van Morrison on Saturday, June 1, 2019  at 7:30p.m. at the Long Lake Town Hall featuring the Massachusetts Band, Moondance, The Ultimate Van Morrison Tribute.

Moondance the Band

Moondance is the ultimate Van Morrison Tribute Concert.

The show is packed with one Van Morrison classic after the next.
The reviews are in.
“An incredible recreation of the Irish legend.” – LA Times
“If Van Morrison isn’t coming to your town, Moondance is the next best thing!” – Dallas News
“A very impressive and realistic portrayal of Van Morrison…a must see.” – Hawaii Reporter
The band members hail from Massachusetts and can regularly be seen performing venues in and around the Springfield, MA region.  Musicians include: Ed Moran on Lead Vocals, Dan Broad playing bass and vocals, Dana Welts on guitar, Vinnie Brandi on drums, Aaron Dean on Sax and Joe Torra on Keyboards

Morrison, portrayed by Ed Moran in the show, will be backed by a five-piece band, including drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and sax.

“The real thing, people.” -Billboard


In 2018 American singer-songwriter Martin Sexton extends touring in support of his ninth studio release Mixtape of the Open Road.   The Wall Street Journal and CMT  premiered tracks from the album that since garnered much critical acclaim. “Outstanding taste in songwriting as well as a soul-marinated voice.” -Rollingstone

Still fiercely independent and headlining venues from The Fillmore to Carnegie Hall, he has influenced a generation of contemporary artists. His songs have appeared in television series such as Scrubs, Parenthood, Masters of Sex and in numerous films, though it’s his incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans coming back for more.
