MASSENA -- The Concerts in the Park series, here in Spring Park, will really get moving June 22 at 6 p.m. with the jam band stylings of local favorites Atom Ghost.
The Concerts in the Park series is sponsored by the Massena Chamber of Commerce and will offer a wide variety of free musical entertainment for local residents.
The Massena-based Atom Ghost, formed in September 2016 and comprised of Kevin O’Brien, guitar and vocals; Greg Currier, drums and vocals; Brandon Bolster, bass; and Ethan Marolf, guitar, describes themselves as a “good vibes and family band.” The band riffs on covers by the Grateful Dead, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and other classic rock bands, with typical jam band flare and improvised jams mixed into their sets.
