Get Up Jack Plays The Boat House on Tuesday, July 23!

From te band’s official bio:

Irish-Americans John Haggerty and Mike DeAngelis have been performing Irish music together since 1979. In 2013, they founded their newest band, GET UP JACK, a culmination of nearly four decades of musical performances together and with other well-known bands, playing in the US and Ireland. 

John and Mike have had the distinct pleasure of sharing the festival stages with their original musical inspirations: the Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem, and The Wolftones, as well as their more contemporary influences: The Saw Doctors and Great Big Sea. 

Drawing from classic Irish folk sound, GET UP JACK merges today’s high energy Irish music with impressive vocal harmony and unexpected musical talent. GET UP JACK is at home playing in a neighborhood pint-swinging pub or performing on a festival stage to a dancing crowd of thousands - and every venue in-between. 

Old and young alike enjoy the moving beat or mournful ballad from these seasoned showmen, who have also shared the same festival stages with Gaelic Storm, Eileen Ivers, Solas, Black 47 and The Young Dubliners, to name a few.

*Rod Stewart Performs in Schroon Lake

Jay Gates as Rod Stewart

Jay Gates as Rod Stewart

Rod Stewart impersonator Jay Gates takes the stage Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at the BoatHouse, proudly presented by the Schroon Lake Arts Council. Get ticket info by clicking here.

From Jay’s bio:

“Every Rod Stewart impersonator has the haircut, shoes, and clothes . . . some even have the voice and moves.  But in addition to all of that, Jay has something the other Rod Stewart look-alikes will never have.  He’s got the nose . . . HE’S GOT THE NOSE!  As Rod himself would sing, ‘some guys have all the luck’.

 Armed with a repertoire of over forty hits, dressed to the nines in full Rod regalia, and belting it out with a raspy four octave range, Jay consistently brings it on and dares any audience anywhere to leave his performances unhappy.  Fun is had by all and it is always a jolly good time indeed!

Be it with a dynamic four-piece band, alone with backing tracks, or any combination in-between, Jay astonishingly recreates all phases of Rod’s award winning career from his early days with the Jeff Beck Group and Faces right through to his current residency at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.

 From the majesty of a full-blown rock concert to the intimacy of a private party, Jay’s ability to connect with any audience has made his Boston-based Rod Stewart Tribute a top choice among event planners, booking agents, and music lovers from New England to England . . . make him yours too!”

Trudi Skinder - Keyboard and vocals

For Trudi, music is synonymous with family and community. Holidays were spent around the family piano singing, dancing and making music. Trudi took piano & guitar lessons as a child, and studied musical theatre as a teenager. As she raised her family, Trudi enjoyed singing with her community choir, and passing the gift of music to her children. "Playing keyboard and singing with Skinder & Sage is a joyous musical adventure. Come join the fun by coming to hear us play!"
