Live music to fill Elba Village Park on Sunday | Lifestyles


The DSP Jazz Trio will be one of four local groups performing on September 12 in Elba Village Park on Route 98.

The music is scheduled from noon to 6 p.m., with the DSP Trio due to play around 1:30 p.m.

Other bands on the line include the Corfu-Pembroke Band, Generations and Don Newcomb Band.

Food, drinks and ice cream will be available. The concert is the latest in a series of summer shows presented by the Elba Betterment Committee.

Those present are reminded to bring a garden chair.

The Corfu-Pembroke Community Band is made up of local musicians who really love music and perform for community activities. The group, led by Don Rogers, is expected to perform show tunes, pop music and John Phillips Sousa.

Generations is a five-piece group that performs dancing rock and roll music from the 1950s and 1960s. Artists covered include The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Linda Ronstadt, The Ronettes and many other old wonders at success. The group has been together for quite a long time.

Generations will be third in the concert lineup, which should play around 3 p.m. The group will be in the large pavilion, so there will be plenty of room to dance, organizers said.

DSP includes Derek Reiss, Skip Taylor and Peter Mark.

Reiss, a Batavia High School graduate and resident of Elba, was a trumpeter for the US Air Force Band for almost 24 years. He shared the stage with artists like Andy Williams, Crystal Gayle, The Temptations and the Miracles. Reiss will play the trumpet and bugle on Sunday.

Taylor, who will be on electronic drums, graduated from Pembroke High School, attended SUNY Fredonia and then returned to teach music at Pembroke for 30 years. He has performed for many musical groups here and in Canada and formed the Corfu-Pembroke Community Band years ago.

Mark, who will play the trombone and sing, graduated from Batavia High and continued his education at Murray State University in Kentucky. He has performed throughout western New York with numerous instrumental and vocal organizations.

The Rochester-based Don Newcomb Band performs a variety of music, including popular songs from early 1940s rock and roll, country and swing.
