Lake Lou Yaeger Concert Series
What is the best way to end a day on the lake? We know! It is with live music! Lake Lou Yaeger will be hosting a Lake Lou Yaeger Concert series in 2021! Three of these concerts will take place ON A BARGE IN THE LAKE! This means visitors can groove from the comfort of their own boat! For land lovers, two of the barge concerts will be by Marina 2, so don’t worry; you can still attend! All concerts are free. A valid boat pass (daily or annual) is required and can be purchased at Marina 1. Check the lineup and more details below!
Sunday, May 30
6 PM – 9 PM in Rainmaker Cove
Get ready to pass the sunscreen as you listen to island music on Sunday, May 30 from 6 PM – 9 PM. Good Vibes trio is a blend of Calypso, Reggae, Bossa, Soca, and Caribbean sounds. Playing songs you know and love, venture to Rainmaker Cove on your boat and join in this free boat to concert on the water!
This is the first concert on the water barge concert that has ever been hosted at Lake Lou Yaeger. Please extend a warm welcome to Good Vibes as they are enthusiastic to help prepare Lake Staff for two massive blowout bashes to come later in the season. This will be the only concert that is intended for boaters only. All other concerts will be available for land viewing as well.
Saturday, June 19
6 PM – 9:30PM by Marina 2
Let’s face it, who doesn’t like 80s music?! Members Only is ready to bring the party on Saturday, June 19 from 6PM – 9:30 PM. This party barge will be placed near Marina 2 and angled for boating convenience. Bring your boat and your friends and get ready to jam! There is no cost for the concert, just bring your friends, your dancing shoes, and an 1980s headbanging attitude. All boats need an annual or daily pass to be on the water.
If you don’t have a boat, that is ok too. The concert barge will be stationed near Marina 2 for you to watch from the shore. Visitors watching from the shore will park in the Picnic Area 4 parking lot and walk down the hill to the lower parking lot. Vehicles and boats will not be allowed to use this lot, with the exception of those with a handicapped placard. On June 19, all boats must launch from Marina 1. (Use 4 Marina Lane for your GPS if you are driving to Marina 2. Boats must launch from Marina 1-4943 Beach House Trail.)
Members Only is the premier 80’s tribute act. Their mission: to play a full-length, high-energy, rock show of the most recognizable hits of the 1980’s. Their goal: Synthesize every show into an epic party. Their high-energy, trademark performance merges an incredible light show with music that spans the decade: Journey, Michael Jackson, Def Leppard, Prince, Bon Jovi, G&R, and many more artists. Stylistically, the band plays a balance of rock and pop that emphasizes a packed dance floor. Put on your party gear, and let these masters of the 80’s remind you that the 80’s will always live on.
Sunday, July 4
7 PM – 9: 20 PM near Milnot Beach at Marina 1
This is the only concert that will not take place on the water. Vince Martin will perform his solo act live near the Milnot Beach House at Marina 1 (4932 Beach House Trail) before the 4th of July fireworks launch at 9:30 PM from Marina 1. Grab your lawn chair and picnic blanket then head to Lou Yaeger. There is no charge for this concert.
Vince Martin, one of the finest world-traveled Vocalist/Guitarist and Entertainers in the business. St. Louis’ best-kept secret has the vocal characteristics of George Benson, Al Jarreau, and Elvis Presley and the instrumental prowess of Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana and Albert King.
From the young age of 10 years old, Vince spent all of his time immersing himself in music. He sang doo-wop, harmonized and played guitar, drums, bass and trumpet. At age 15, Vince played with the Albert King Blues Band and worked with the great Jazz trumpeter and improvisationalist, Mr. David Hines in many of his ensembles which earned him a write-up in Downbeat Magazine. Since there was no cable TV or Internet, this was a very big thing for such a young local musician.
Later, Vince opened shows for maestro Barry White, Gladys Knight and the Pips, War, Curtis Mayfield, Jane L. Powell, saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr., Kiss, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkedelic, vibraharpist Gerry Burton, the Allman Bros. Band, the J. Giles Band, Carly Simon, Don and Alecia Cunningham, Ike Turner, Theo Peoples of the Four Tops, Howlin’ Wolf, Ike & Tina Turner, and played in a group called The Smith Connection at the world famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem with The Stylistics and three very fine ladies known as First Choice.
Vince performs all styles or genres of music and holds true to the philosophy that all good music belongs to all good humankind. He feels that there must be something in this wonderful God-given discipline that was meant to solve some untold mystery. He still believes that to be true to this day, and will continue to believe, always.
Vince continues to make his own mark in the world of music with his distinctive song stylings and formidable instrumental prowess. After touring with and sharing the stage with many national artists and playing numerous resorts and cruise ships all over the globe, Vince is based in St Louis and continues to perform shows nationally that include tributes to George Benson/Al Jarreau, Tom Jones, Albert King and Linda Rondstadt / Aaron Neville & legends.
