Airtight to close concert series

The final concert of the 2012 Whitehall summer “Music in the Park” concert series will be held tomorrow night at Riverside Veterans Memorial Park.

For the past seven weeks local and regional performers have been entertaining audiences with sounds ranging from rock ‘n’ roll to old-time jazz and this week the band Airtight will put an explanation point on this year’s concert series.

Airtight will perform music from the 1960s to contemporary beginning at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow.

The band consists of Art Schult, Bob Tressler, Paul Finch and Billi Jones.

Schult, the band’s lead guitarist and one of three vocalists, has been playing professionally for 40 years, and was influenced by the Beatles while traveling the country with his father, a professional baseball player. Schult is a Granville resident and works at Tractor Supply.

Tressler, a Hebron real estate agent, has been playing and teaching drums for over 45 years and has played in bands on both coasts. As an instructor, he taught Miranda Lambert’s drummer, Keith Zebroski, how to play as a youngster.

Finch, a bass guitarist from Queensbury, has played for over 30 years in bands such as Hibiscus and the Screaming Violets, among others.

Jones, a keyboardist and vocalist, has opened for Herman’s Hermits and .38 Special. Heavily influenced by the original Woodstock Festival, she covers everything from Janis Joplin and Styx to modern performers like Carrie Underwood and Adele.

Admission to the concert is completely free. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chair or blanket to sit upon.

The Music in the Park concert series is made possible by donations and contributions from local business and organizations, including the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
