Hey folks, now here’s something you don’t see everyday!

Bay Chamber Concerts, as part of their 2016 Screen Door Music Festival, is putting on a free lakefront concert next Friday at 6 PM!

Throbbing funk grooves, fiery Balkan brass, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops make Slavic Soul Party! NYC’s official #1 brass band for BalkanSoul GypsyFunk. SSP! has created an acoustic mash-up of Balkan and Gypsy sounds with North American music, weaving the gospel, techno, funk, dub, jazz, and Latin influences of New York’s neighborhoods. This 9-piece band will perform an unprecedented, free musical happening on Megunticook Lake. Put in at Bog Bridge or Gypsy Landing (Rt. 52) and use the following coordinates to locate the dock where the band will be playing.

44°14.71′ N 69° 6.01′ W    (the Battle’s place)

Because the show is WATER ACCESS ONLY, those without a watercraft may rent one via Maine Sport Outfitters; rentals must be arranged by noon by calling the Outdoor Programs Department at 236-8797 for pickup at the Bog Bridge on Route 105. Renters are asked to make arrangements for return of the watercraft at pick up time.

Hope to see you all there!
