2023 Concerts on the Waterfront
August 6 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The Sackets Harbor Historical Society will continue its 2023 Concerts on the Waterfront series with Hot Club of Saratoga, performing on Sunday, Aug 6, from 3 to 5 pm, at the Sackets Harbor Battlefield, located at 504 West Main Street.
The Capital Region’s premier gypsy swing ensemble, Hot Club of Saratoga plays a repertoire that reflects the spirit and style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephané Grappelli in The Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Most of the tunes Hot Club of Saratoga performs were written or recorded by Django Reinhardt, and the band explores his style throughout the range of its roots while also subtly expanding the genre. Hot Club of Saratoga will bring the audience to their feet with its range of sweet, soulful balladry and hard-driving swing and fiery tempos.
This concert is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and administered by the St. Lawrence County Arts Council.
The Sackets Harbor Historical Society’s Concerts on the Waterfront series run on Sunday afternoons, from June 25 through Sept 3, 2023. Like all those in the series, this concert is free and open to the public. It’s held outdoors at the Battlefield, so remember to pack your picnic blanket or lawn chairs.

We hope to see you at some, or ALL, of the concerts this summer!
