For Immediate Release

MARCY— Betsy the Barge – the 110-foot floating stage on the old Erie Canal – continues with its concert series this summer with the special talents of Joe Angerosa, the well-known Elvis impersonator. Thanks to the sponsorship of the New York Power Authority, he will appear at Betsy the Barge on Friday, August 31, beginning at 6 p.m.

Angerosa’s “Memories of Elvis” tribute is so realistic that “it will make you feel that the King has returned,” said a entertainment commentator recently. Angerosa has performed it several times in Las Vegas and at over 500 other venues throughout the United States for the past 25 years.

Betsy the Barge is located at Canal Park, Lock 20 along Route 49. Admission to the concert is free and food and drinks are on sale throughout the performances.
