Pulling up a blanket or a chair and getting caught up in music being performed live by a band located within an ornate Ellicottville gazebo is a great way to kick back and relax after a hard day’s work.
It’s also a great way to enjoy something for nothing.
From 7 to 9 p.m. every Thursday at the village gazebo, the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce will present the 2012 Gazebo Series, featuring a different musical performer every week. Each concert is free and sponsored by Five Star Bank.
The Midnight Riders, a classic rock, southern rock and blues cover band, kicked off the gazebo series June 30. Girls Gone Mild, four regional female music stars, performed July 5 and the Celtic and world music band Stone Row played at the gazebo Thursday night.
The remaining lineup is as follows:
July 19 – Tony DeRosa Band (original styling of popular songs)
July 26 – Vitamin D (highly stylized favorites)
Aug. 2 – The Visitors (Maria Sebastian’s American/pop band)
Aug. 9 – Mirage (nuevo-flamenco and world-flavored music)
So unfold a chair or roll out that blanket and have a picnic while enjoying the music with someone you love. Oh and try not to sit too far away.
