Memorial Meltdown

May 25 @ 2:30 pm - 11:00 pm

If you are looking for a great way to spend this Memorial Day weekend, look no further than Memorial Meltdown at Charles R. Wood Park in downtown Lake George. This year’s Memorial Meltdown will feature headlining performances by The Revivalists on Saturday, May 25 and Dispatch on Sunday, May
26. Also performing throughout the two-day event are Ryan Montbleau Band, The Mallett Brothers and Rob Beaulieu Band on Saturday and Mihali (live band), The Samples and Annie in the Water on Sunday. Formed by Chadwick Stokes and Brad Corrigan, Dispatch has forged its own path outside the mainstream music industry as one of the most successful bands in the roots rock scene. With 8 studio albums, 6 live albums, and over 25 years of touring and festivals under their belts, the band has become one of biggest success stories in independent music history, selling out three consecutive nights at Madison Square Garden and drawing over 100,000 fans to a massive outdoor show in their adopted hometown of Boston without any traditional radio or major label support.
Throughout their rise, Dispatch has taken every opportunity to use their success for good, launching charitable organizations to address social justice issues, raising funds and awareness for domestic hunger, education reform, sexual harassment in the music industry, and organizations serving children and communities in Zimbabwe. Chadwick Stokes’ Calling All Crows joins bands and fans together in collective activism, while Brad Corrigan’s Love Light + Melody help simplify the stories of children who live in extreme poverty.
Eight-piece rock ‘n’ roll collective The Revivalists have made the journey from hole-in-the-wall gigs to sold-out shows at hallowed venues, multiplatinum success, more than 800 million streams and major media praise. Renowned for their live prowess, soulful alt-rock anthems, distinctive mix of many of the classic styles of American music, and outward generosity through their philanthropic Rev Causes initiative, The Revivalists make the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that grabs you and doesn’t let go, whether for a joyful release or a pensive observation about life.
Following Vital Signs [2010] and City of Sound [2014], the group broke through on their own terms with 2015’s Men Amongst Mountains. The smash single “Wish I Knew You” earned a RIAA double-platinum certification and impressively crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100. They’ve incited the applause of
everyone from Rolling Stone, NPR, Billboard, and SPIN to Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, Buzzfeed, and Forbes. On the road, they’ve headlined legendary venues coast-to-coast, opened for The Rolling Stones, and graced the bills of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, and New Orleans Jazz
Fest, among others. Plus, they’ve delivered standout television performances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, TODAY, Austin City Limits, ELLEN, and more.
Mihali, who’s band Twiddle has headlined Memorial Meltdown the past two years, returns this year with his live band, which also features Twiddle members Zdenek Gubb (bass) and Adrian Tramontano (drums), along with Scott Hanay (keys) and a horn section.
Memorial Meltdown will also feature a variety of food and craft vendors and is a family-friendly event (free general admission for children 12 and under). Gates open each day at 2:30pm with music set to begin at 3:30pm and run until about 11:00pm.
