OLEAN, NY -- The city’s annual summer concert series will continue Thursday with a performance by Toucan Jam, a duo featuring Rich Gardner and Nancy "Bea" Antonelli.
The free performance is scheduled for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.in Lincoln Park.
Toucan Jam kicked off last summer's concert series with a wide variety of material that included familiar tunes such as Van Morrison's “Brown Eyed Girl,” Neil Diamond's “Sweet Caroline” and Elton John's “Daniel,” but they also ventured into unexpected areas for an acoustic duo, performing the Jefferson Airplane's “Somebody to Love,” Martha and the Vandellas' “Dancing in the Streets” and “I’m Your Venus,” the only hit by the Dutch rock band Shocking Blue.
In the event of rain, Thursday's show will take place inside the John J. Ash Community Building on North Barry Street.
The concert series will continue on Thursday nights through Aug. 23. The schedule includes:
