2018 Summer Concert Series

July 7, 2018Iron Horse
Southern rock. If you’re a fan of Skynyrd, Marshal Tucker, The Outlaws, and Stevie Ray Vaughn, you will love this band! First time on the Taughannock stage, come see this All American band on 4th of July weekend!

July 14, 2018Radio London
Come down to the park and relive the 60s with all of those danceable hits that you loved back then. Radio London plays the top 40 hits that we loved to sing along with on AM radio. Step back to a simpler time, stretch out on the lawn or get up and dance … it’s all about taking a break from stress. Come relax with friends!

July 21, 2018The Fall Creek Brass Band
If you haven’t see this high energy, fun loving band, you don’t know what you’re missing. After numerous requests from our concertgoers in the know, we look forward to having them on our stage. This will be a fun night with classic big band hits and more … much more. A party not to be missed!

July 28, 2018 — Jorge and Caribe Band Allstars
This is one of the most requested bands we’ve had over the years. Their Latin Jazz music is always high energy and will pack the dance floor in front of the stage. Salsa, Merengue and Samba dance music; as much fun to watch as it is to dance.

August 4, 2018Answer the Muse
Soulful, theatrical, original; Answer the Muse is new to the Taughannock series, bringing their uplifting and inspiring original music to the concert stage. The band has played throughout the Northeast and released their third CD titled “now”.

August 11, 2018 The Burns Sisters
Yes, they’re back! One of the most requested bands to ever grace the Taughannock concert stage. The sisters sing American folk and pop music, and helped make our concert series the place to be on Saturday evenings.

August 18, 2018GoGone
Another first timer to the Taughannock State, one of the most popular bands in the Ithaca area playing their own original music.
