‘Last Chance Beach Party’ featuring Shu, Hartley’s Encore and Rich Ortiz, 1-6 p.m., Shepard Park, Canada Street, Lake George. Cap off the 2018 Adirondack Independence Music Festival with the free “Last Chance Beach Party” featuring music by Shu, Hartley’s Encore and Rich Oritz. Shu traveled the East Coast of these great United States throughout much of the 1990s. They were one of a handful of experimental genre-crossing bands that played the college circuit during that time. Their classic “Fanagalo” was released during this time. After taking a three-year hiatus in 1997, Shu reformed in 2000 and has been playing a handful of shows each year ever since. Hartley’s Encore is a funk/soul band from Albany. Their mission: making music that’s equal parts soundtrack to your Saturday night and bacon for your Sunday brunch. Frequently funky and always soulful, H.E. is the house band at your dance party for the apocalypse. Rich Ortiz’s style is truly his own and his music is his soul. Ortiz, never a wallflower, believes he is the product of his family’s cultural diversity and strengths. Since the age of 17 he has focused all of his talents and time on his acoustic solo act, if you can call it that. Ortiz plays guitar, harmonica, and peddle bass (with his feet), and he turns heads with his vocals. He has opened shows for Chicago, Reo Speedwagon, STYX, Ted Nugent, Ludacris, Hoobastank, KC and the Sunshine Band, Jeffrey Gaines, Ryan Montbleau Band, The Wood Brothers,Robert Randolph and the family band, Tea Leaf Green, Zach Deputy, Kracker, Merl Saunders, Melvin Seals, Jim Weider, and the Drifters. Inspired by artists like Jim Croce, James Taylor, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Willie Nelson, he says, “I feel I have to change every gig around in order to grow as a musician.”
