Darkside Skinny Dippers

Date: July 25, 2022

Time: 7:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. 

Location: Tupper Lake Sunset Stage, Flanders Park, Tupper Lake

Since the beginning of time ‘twas written in the

stones, that one day a band would come. Well, that band did come and they’re ready to come again. Formed in the late 60’s as an art collective, Darkside Skinny Dippers, often known more affectionately as the world’s greatest hashtag #DSKINNYD, evolved into a ferocious rock band that defined the course of music history in the late 70’s into the mid 80’s. Since reuniting over Zoom in 2020 this group of youngish men have been working tirelessly 1-2 times a year, perfecting their craft and completing the Richard Simmons 5-minute ab workout in its entirety. They feel confident they can bring you a show that at least half of 20% of you can tolerate. Recommended by 0 out of 10 doctors, the band all but guarantees a baby boom that would rival the mid 40's-mid 60's. In short, #DSKINNYD is best described as diverse rock and roll with attitude! There’s a little something for everyone. But don’t take their word for it….

The Big Takeover

Date: August 15, 2022

Time: 7:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m.

Location: Tupper Lake Sunset Stage, Flanders Park, Tupper Lake

Fronted by the charismatic Jamaican-born singer and songwriter Nee Nee Rushie, the seven-piece New York band The Big Takeover plays original music that is rooted in and reverent toward the genres and rhythms of Jamaican pop: reggae, rocksteady, ska. They are devotees of Desmond Dekker and the way the old school did it. At the same time, The Big Takeover crosses lines and blends traditions like global pop fusionists. Their deceptively complex arrangements and big hooks connect with the spirit of Motown and the uptown sophistication of the 21st century retro soul and R&B revival scene.
