The Lustre Kings to perform Aug. 20

WESTPORT - The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks Ballard Park Concert Series will continue this Thursday, Aug. 20, at 7 p.m. with The Lustre Kings, a '50s Rock-A-Billy band.

Mark Gamsjager and the Lustre Kings play rock and roll the right way. The powerhouse combo from Albany wowed crowds at Manhattan's Rodeo Bar, Seattle's Tractor Tavern and all points in-between; and they've done it with uncommon fervor, commitment and flair. The Gretsch-toting Gamsjager draws from a deeper well than most roots rock acts, giving his music a breadth and depth while still keeping the bar hopping and the dance floor filled. In addition to their own dates, Mark Gamsjager and the Lustre Kings have also accompanied Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly, for more than five years, and frequently work with other seasoned artists like Bill Kirchen, Eddie Angel and Robert Gordon.
