TS Enesmble performs Thursday

Granville’s summer concert series suffered its first rainout of the season last week when bad weather caused village officials to call off the much-anticipated return of Big Smoothies, but there is good news on several fronts.

Village officials were able to arrange for Big Smoothies to come back. The band is now scheduled to play at 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 30, which had been an open date on the concert schedule.

The other good news is that tonight, one of the most-experienced and crowd-pleasing bands on the summer circuit will play from 7 to 9 p.m. T.S. Ensemble, an eight-member band out of Albany, has been together for 25 years and is familiar to those who attend Granville’s concerts.

The band, which plays many events and weddings, features both male and female vocalists, trumpet, saxophone, guitar, bass, drums and keyboards.

A hometown favorite will be on the stage Aug. 9 when Freedom Hawk brings its classic rock, country rock and contemporary country music to a 7 p.m. show.

Making that night even better will be the return of the Slate Valley Masons chicken barbecue. The Masons will start serving at 4:30 p.m., and the dinner has always sold out in the past. It is scheduled to last until 6:30 p.m. The cost is $9 and includes a half-chicken, baked potato, baked beans, cabbage salad, rolls and brownies.

The following week, Air Tight plays music from the 1960s to today.

Enerjazz, an 18-piece ensemble, will play Aug. 23 and will feature swing-rock, ballads and more.

Starting this Sunday, the Poultney-Granville Band will be playing at Veterans Park from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Sundays throughout August.
