Lake Lanier Islands kicking off summer concert series
BUFORD - Lake Lanier Islands will unveil the redesigned Peachtree Point Amphitheater with a series of concerts this summer.
The Georgia’s Island Stage Concert Series kicks off with rising country stars of Gloriana on Saturday, July 7, at 8 p.m. Also taking the stage throughout the summer will be the Jimmy Buffet tribute band, A1A, on Saturday, August 11; local legends, Banks & Shane for their 40th Anniversary Bash on Saturday, August 18; and, the Grammy Award-winning Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on Saturday, September 15.
Recently, the amphitheater formerly known as Presentation Point was completely renovated. The terraced venue now includes chairs in every section.
“We have played shows at the amphitheater many times, most recently in 2006, where we shared the stage with our friend, Jeff Foxworthy,” explains Banks Burgess of Banks & Shane. “It has always been one of our favorite places to play, but the Islands Give Back Concert this past Saturday was the first time I have experienced Peachtree Point as a member of the audience. It is fantastic! The natural bowl creates an intimate concert environment. Combine that with the excellent acoustics and the spectacular view with Lake Lanier as a backdrop… well, it has to be the best venue in Georgia both to perform a show and to watch one. We are proud to host ‘Georgia’s Island Stage’, and we look forward with great enthusiasm to celebrating our 40th Anniversary at Peachtree Point on August 18.”
For each concert, the doors will open at 7 p.m. and the bands will take the stage at 8 p.m. To purchase tickets for each event, visit http://www.lakelanierislands.com/events, or for more information contact Kate Davis at email@example.com.
