L’pool hosts two big bashes on Sunday, Aug. 5

— At the last-minute, guitarists Loren Barrigar and Mark Mazengarb have been added to the Salt City Sunday bill. Loren and Mark recently returned from their appearance at the Annual Chet Atkins Convention in Nashville.

At 5 p.m. Syracuse Area Music Awards winners E.S.P. will play smooth jazz from the quartet’s 2011 CD, “Reach.”

The DeSantis Orchestra – which is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year -- takes the stage at 6:30 p.m. and will feature new arrangements including big band tunes, neo-swing and dance-craze numbers from the 1960s to today. Several of the band’s new arrangements were written by saxophonist Joe Riposo, who lives in Liverpool.

Vocalist Maria DeSantis will sing duets with Keith Condon, a longtime member of the orchestra and a native of Liverpool. Singer Isreal Hagan will also perform.
