In need of live music this weekend? Here are a few can’t-miss shows in the Poconos to get you through this weekend and beyond.
Young Lion will “be Jammin” this Saturday for the next installment of the Sherman Theater’s “Concerts on the Creek” summer series. Young Lion has been playing the best of Bob Marley in the Poconos since 2016. Chris Condel and Lion Sanford were George’s bandmates, and Jamie Zaleski (of the Southside Bandits) fronted the band for most of the tribute night. They decided to keep working together, and have since added a few more members including Brian Green on rhythm/lead guitar and Howard “Chinna” Chang on Percussion/Hand Drums to round out their sound.
Young Lion’s blend of roots, rock, and reggae is accomplished by the different playing styles and experience of its members. Their live performances include improvisation on their songs to provide listeners with a fresh experience every time you hear them perform.
The outdoor show, at ESSA Bank Park, 200 Palmer Street, Stroudsburg, starts at 7 p.m., Saturday. Go to shermantheater.com for more info or to purchase tickets.
Local legend Cody Sarisky teamed up with Pete Wilson to form the classic rock duo “Me and Him.” The pair plays acoustic versions of the biggest hits.
Me and Him is headed to East Stroudsburg to play a free show at Dansbury Depot’s “Music on Mondays” summer concert series. Be sure to bring a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the duo’s set. Show starts at 7 p.m., Monday.
