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. This show captures the authentic Van Morrison concert experience from a five-piece band, lighting and the mood evocative of the real deal.  Classic Van Morrison tunes to expect include Brown Eyed Girl, Moondance, Domino, It Stoned Me, Tupelo Honey, Wild Night, Into The Mystic, Caravan and so much more. 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. Moran is a big fan of Van Morrison and strives to capture his unique vocal inflections and to nail down his physical motions to best capture the essence of Van Morrison on stage. 
 
Van Morrison has been making records since the mid-1960’s starting with the band, Them.  He started his solo career in 1967 and can boast a rock n roll legacy over 50 years old. Van Morrison doesn’t tour in the United States too much anymore,  so if Van Morrison isn’t coming to town, this stage show captures an authentic musical experience as close to a live Van Morrison show could be.
 
This is a general admission event. Tickets for the event are available online at mylonglake.com/tribute Pre-sale adult tickets are $15, kids are $10. Tickets can be in

McCarthy Family Trio to Perform in Raquette Lake August 24th

On August 24th at 7pm Join the McCarthy Family for a concert at the Raquette Lake School.

The McCarthy Family is a singing group that specializes in three-part-vocal harmony renditions of folk favorites from both the United States & Ireland. The trio features American treasures such as Stephen Foster’s, Hard Times; and Henry Clay Work’s, My Grandfather’s Clock; as well as more modern favorites by Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan and others. Traditional songs from Deirdre’s native Ireland are also featured. Deirdre has brought the lively, lilting musical culture of her native land to audiences here in America with traditional songs sung in English such as, I’ll Tell Me Ma, She Moved Through the Fair, and Molly Malone, as well as haunting songs sung in the ancient language of her homeland, Irish Gaelic. With their unique blend of Irish and American cultures, it is the McCarthy Family’s wish to give each audience a concert experience that is highly entertaining and richly educational.
