A James Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel tribute concert is set for Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 at 7:30 pm at the Long Lake Town Hall, featuring the Massachusetts Trio, Good Acoustics.
Good Acoustics features musicians Mike Smith, Dave Fazio, and Bill DeSanty. They have been performing professionally on the east coast for over three decades. This acoustic-rock trio is known in the Western Massachusetts area for their emphasis on strong vocals, with all three members contributing as lead singers and each contributing to the three-part harmonies found in the songs they perform.
It has been nearly 45 years since Simon & Garfunkel first split at the height of their fame in 1970 that has motivated Mike and Dave to pursue their passion by paying tribute to this duo, the two bring over 25 years of singing two-part harmonies to the stage.
Lead singing drummer Bill DeSanty is the featured vocalist in the James Taylor tribute set comprised of live and studio versions of J.T. classics.
The concert event will feature two sets. First up is a tribute to James Taylor. James Taylor continues to have a career spanning multiple decades, two continents, a battle with depression, heroin addiction and facing turbulent times in American history. James Taylor’s memorable and timeless songbooks and performance will feature hits ranging from Sweet Baby James, Fire and Rain, Mexico, You’ve Got a Friend and more.
The second half of the tribute concert will feature Simon and Garfunkel’s hits reflective of a time when the prevailing vibe at the tail end of the Sixties was anything but peaceful or loving. It was a time defined by Vietnam, the draft lottery, civil rights movement, and the Nixon era. Look for songs from Bridge Over Troubled Water, hits from The Graduate, America and more to be featured.
