Lots of music is in the works for Georgetown Day

The musical entertainment for the 10th annual Georgetown Day on Sunday, June 10, rain or shine, from noon to 6, is now in place.

There will be two stages — the Blackbird Stage and the Saloon Stage — set up on Georgetown’s Main Street, one at each end. A variety of music will be played, from reggae to rock ‘n roll, and there will be a couple of kids’ bands.

The schedule is as follows:

Blackbird Stage

Noon to 1 — Dan Lipsitz and Julian Saporiti. Acclaimed singer and songwriter Julian Saporiti joins New York University saxophonist Dan Lipsitz and his trio to create an original mix of old school rock ‘n roll, swing and soul.

1:10 to 2:10 — VFI. Danbury bluesman Jon Chapman leads this fiery quartet, featuring Dave Savitsky on saxophone, into many musical territories including funk, soul, blues, jazz and rockabilly.

2:20 to 3:20 — Symphonic Bodega. Celebrated instrumentalist Christopher Cavaliere showcases an incredible array of regional talent in this eclectic swath of experimental jazz and groove orchestrations.

3:30 to 4:30 — Deep Intentions. Percussionist Harry Ellis offers up a hip, sophisticated twist on reggae, R&B and jazz featuring some of the best players in the area.

4:40 to 6 — Unbridled classic rock ‘n roll from a seasoned crew of musicians who have shared the stage with a long list of celebrated artists. The band is sure to impress music fans of all ages.

Saloon Stage

Noon to 12:30 — Pampalibros. A youth band consisting of seventh, eighth and ninth graders who are striving to find the breakthrough they need while pursuing their love of rock and roll. They formed two and a half years ago and are now beginning to write their own original material.

4:50 to 6 — Artie Band. Delivering his brand of Roots Americana, Artie Tobia delivers his lyric-driven songs with emotion and conviction supported by his band as they weave in and out of the stories, characters and emotions of everyday real people that he writes about.
