Riverlink Park

Berkshire Bateria


Saturday evening’s Riverlink Park Concert was performed by the Berkshire Bateria .  Their drum line,  Samba and Bossa Nova tunes entertained and engaged the concertgoers. Performing with the group was Amsterdam’s own Fabiola Dayian.

The performers were pleasantly surprised with the beauty of our Greater Amsterdam Riverlink Park as they drummed along the Mohawk.

Skeeter Creek


The Greater Amsterdam Riverlink Park experienced a record-breaking crowd of Skeeter Creek fans as the modern country band performed Saturday evening. With an estimate of over 600 people in attendance, remarks like, wow, unbelievable, amazing and fantastic were echoed in the crowd.

The local country band consisting of Joe Kulewicz – lead guitar/vocals, Dave Ahl – lead vocals, Dean Haskin – drums, Dominic Paratore – keyboards/vocals, Rikk Anderson – steel guitar/vocals, Renee Lussier – vocals and Juan Lopez – bass/vocals is just soaring in popularity with a fan base that has quadrupled since last season. Their performance last night of popular country songs and upbeat tempos drew large numbers of people to the dance floor. The high-energy crowd was on their feet moving and singing to the popular tunes while trying to capture images of their favorite band member on portable electronic devices.

The Grove Street Photographer covered the 2012 Skeeter Creek event at Riverlink Park and was able to get some good photos. This year the large number of attendees hindered any hopes of a video but the following images recorded the event.
