Slifer House Summer Concert Series Kicks Off With “Blue River Spell”

The annual Slifer House Summer Concert Series will kick off on June 11, 2019, near the Slifer House on the campus of RiverWoods Senior Living Community. The first concert will feature local favorite Blue River Spell. The concert is co-sponsored by the Lewisburg Sunrise Rotary Club and begins at 7 p.m.

Blue River Spell is a 5-piece band performing selections of jazz, blues, Latin, swing, soul, rock and pop songs. They perform a wide variety of music from “the American songbook” including 1960s classic rock, swing, pop, country cross-over, rhythm and blues, a very nice light jazz style, and some very upbeat favorites. The ensemble includes: Sara Lauver on vocals; Ted DiCola on saxophones, clarinet and flute; Jim Kerber on drums; Andy Seal on bass; and Rick Findlay on keyboards and vocals.

The location of the concerts has shifted from the Slifer House porch to the grassy area outside the entrance to Riverview Manor, just past the Slifer House and to the left.

Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy the shows. Donations are welcome to offset the cost of the concert series. Bottled water and ice cream with toppings will be available at the concert. During inclement weather, concerts will be held in Marlow Hall, RiverWoods Nursing Care Center.

This is the first of three concerts to be held this summer at the Slifer House, continuing the annual Slifer House Summer Concert Series tradition.
