MAYVILLE — The Aug. 3 performance of the Mayville/Chautauqua Community Chamber of Commerce Entertainment in the Park Summer Concert Series, held at Lakeside Park in Mayville from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., will feature the classic rock duo “T.J. North.”

The duo, consisting of Jim Scriven on guitar and Tim Kelly on keyboards, play, as they humorously like to say, “classic rock and songs you can’t remember … and wish we could!”

This talented duo performs hits from the Beatles, CCR and Chicago to the Rolling Stones. These two have performed together off and on for nearly five decades. They have also both graced the Entertainment in the Park concert stage in past years and the Chamber is glad to welcome them back this summer.

Jim Scriven spends his winter months in Florida and has a duo called “J.R. Southern,” thus the band name “T.J. North.”

They enjoy playing the songs they grew up with and performed in their younger years.

Rainbow the Clown (Jerry Stimson) will also be on hand to entertain the children with creative balloon sculptures and face painting.

These performances are brought to you free of charge through the generous sponsorship of the village of Mayville and town of Chautauqua. Remember to bring your own seating for the concert.

In case of inclement weather, the performance will take place at the Carlson Community Center, also located at Lakeside Park in Mayville.

A 50/50 raffle will be held at the concerts again this summer benefiting the Chamber and its work in the community. The Mayville Fire Department will be offering popcorn and water on a donation basis to benefit the fire department. The Maple Springs Fire Department will also be offering BBQ dinners for sale at the concerts this summer for the benefit of their fire department.
