Thursday, Aug. 11 at 7 p.m.—FAIR HAVEN—The Michele Fay Band will appear on Thursday, Aug. 11. This band features original and Americana music that brings forth a comfortable groove of folk, swing, and bluegrass-influenced songs that are woven seamlessly together. Michele’s heart-felt lyrics are central to the ensemble, as she sings with a clear, authentic voice accompanied by guitar and banjo. Tim Price adds ideal melodic instrumentals on mandolin and guitar, while Kalev Freeman works his“lilting” fiddle. Michael Santosusso provides tenor harmonies and drives a dynamic beat with upright bass.
Her “crack backing band” is a perfect match for Michele’s talent as a singer-songwriter and adds to the charm and sincerity of these songs without detracting from their earnest messages. The repertoire provides a mix of understated originals and well-placed traditional covers, played and sung with relaxed polish, personality and taste.
The Fair Haven Park is the place to be on Thursday evenings. As always, hot dogs, soda, water and popcorn are available for purchase. Door prizes are drawn during intermission and followed by the 50/50 drawing.
The Fair Haven Concerts in the Park features an evening of outstanding entertainment each week. Throughout the 10-week series, the concert committee tries to bring in a variety of different music genres that are both entertaining and family friendly. The concerts start at 7 p.m., but concert-goers are encouraged to come early.
