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.

Rock on Amsterdam…Rock on!

The Audiostars kicked off Amsterdam’s 2013 Riverlink Park Concert Series to a delightful crowd of faithful concertgoers. The band consists of J Yager on vocals and guitar, Matt Pirog on lead guitar, Chad Ploss on drums and vocals and Bobbie Van Detta on Bass and vocals. They played high energy classic rock that pleased the crowd of about 400 who were very eager to dance!

Riverlink Park looked great despite local flooding that prevented the docks from being installed. During the concert, visible debris continued to float down the Mohawk River. People were not bothered by the minor distractions and seemed happy to enjoy the outdoor event with no threat of rain! It was a great night.
