The featured performers for the August 11, 2016 performance of the Entertainment in the Park Summer Concert Series will be ‘the lake effect’, an all-male a cappella group hailing from the Buffalo, NY area. The concert will take place from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Lakeside Park, Mayville, NY, located along the shores of Chautauqua Lake.

Members of the group are Jamie Holden, Tenor; Matthew Sciara, Bass; Lou Shafer, Tenor/Vocal Percussion; Jeff Trenchard, Tenor; and Ron Veiders, Baritone. This 5-member all-male a cappella group performs covers as well as original songs. The band was formed some years ago so that new and intricate a cappella music of both original and popular tunes can be appreciated by audiences of all ages. The group doesn’t use any musical instruments in their performances. They are a very talented group of performers who give another definition to the term ‘the lake effect’. To them it’s “a group of 5 men unified in one common goal; the promotion and performance of all-male a cappella music”. They graced our concert stage two years ago with their unique, musical talents, and we are pleased to welcome them back this year for another great performance.

Rainbow the Clown (Jerry Stimson) will also be on hand to entertain the children with face painting and balloon sculptures. Rainbow is a favorite with the children and they’re sure to have a great time as well. The Entertainment in the Park musical performances are provided at no cost to the public through the sponsorship and support of the Village of Mayville and Town of Chautauqua. In case of rain, the performance will take place at the Carlson Community Center also located at Lakeside Park, Mayville. Remember to bring your own seating for the outdoor performance. A 50/50 drawing will be held at each of the concerts this summer, the winner announced just before the end of the performance. The Maple Springs Fire Department will be selling delicious BBQ dinners at each of our concerts this summer, benefiting their Fire Department. The Mayville Fire Department also offers popcorn and water at each of the performances this summer on a donation basis, for the benefit of their Fire Department. Your support of these two essential organizations is greatly appreciated.
