This fast-growing variety show can be seen monthly at the nearby Stone Mountain Arts Center. Now, for one night, the LIVE crew is leaving one mountain for another — Cranmore! Zany Man and Comedian Mike Miclon will be warming up the crowd starting at 6 p.m., so come early and have a picnic dinner and some laughs at the base of beautiful Cranmore Mountain.

The second concert on Thursday, July 29, will feature Big Band Swing and Jazz by the Compaq Big Band. The internationally acclaimed Compaq Big Band, directed by Al Saloky, is an authentic 20-piece big band that has kept New England swingin' since 1975. Their jazz repertoire begins with honoring the classics from the '30s and '40s, and then roars ahead with exciting arrangements from more modern big bands.

Come to the early performance by the Valley's own Dennis and Davey. This well-known duo has a great love for what they do and it shows. Their rapport with audiences both young and old is warm and instant. If you haven't had the opportunity to see and hear them, then you have a double treat in store. Be there by 6 p.m. so you don't miss the performance.

The grand finale concert on Thursday, Aug. 12, will be the traditional Pops Concert with fireworks, featuring The New England Wind Symphony, Clayton J. Poole, Conductor and Music Director. This professional Wind Symphony is comprised of some of the finest first call musicians in New England and has entertained audiences all over the Northeast for the past 26 years. It has been featured for 23 consecutive years at The Mount Washington Hotel July 4th Gala Celebration. A warm-up show by area performers is at 6 p.m., and the main performance follows at approximately 7 p.m.

Bring your own picnic blanket or lawn chairs. Food and beverages will be available on the deck at Zip's Pub. Convenient parking is within steps of the concert area, which also offers indoor restroom facilities.

As a result of the successful "Donate at the Gate" program begun last year, Arts Jubilee will continue the request to be able to keep the concerts coming. A donation of $10 for adults and $8 for seniors age 65 and up will be requested at the gate at each of the concerts this summer. Kids 12 and under will continue to enter free of charge.

"This will help keep Arts Jubilee in the black," said Cindy Russell, Arts Jubilee Executive Director, "and assure that our popular family-friendly concerts will continue in 2011. The reward for the generosity of our concert audience will be the knowledge that they have helped keep our high quality live performances coming. Arts Jubilee is gratified to know that our patrons support this new format and have been pleased to help do their share to keep this incredible entertainment available here in the greater Mt. Washington Valley."
