Untermyer Performing Arts Council’s World Fest 2019
McLean Avenue Band
Saturday, August 3rd 2019 at Historic Untermyer Park
McLean Avenue Band is an eclectic mix of musicians that blend to create a dynamic, vibrant and memorable musical experience for audiences everywhere.
Their talented and extremely entertaining band members boast impressive resumes as individuals, bringing you the very best in Irish, Country, Rock and Pop. Although they are from the heart of Ireland, they are well known in the Irish/Celtic scene in the Tri-State area and have electrified stages worldwide.
McLean Avenue Band masterfully combines Traditional Irish tunes and ballads with elements of Rock, Pop and R & B. As a result, this “Super” Band has the unique ability to appeal to a broad spectrum of audiences. Be it an uptempo chart topper, a lilting waltz, a classic rock anthem or a heartfelt Irish ballad, McLean Avenue does it well!
Their charismatic stage presence makes it impossible for them to be anything other than entertaining—and fun. This celebration of international music will be another “don’t miss” Untermyer Performing Arts Council program under the stars!
The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is an all-volunteer group that brings diverse, professional programs to the people of Yonkers and beyond. Formed more than forty years ago, we have brought free entertainment to Untermyer Park each one of those years.
This program, done in cooperation with Mayor Mike Spano and the Yonkers Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation, was made possible by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government and the City of Yonkers. The Empire City Casino, Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins, Senator Shelley Mayer, Assem and our many generous supporters provided additional support for this program.

The Untermyer Performing Arts Council (UPAC) was formed in 1976 to promote the appreciation of the performing arts in Yonkers and beyond. UPAC’s mission was to foster and sponsor performing arts events at the historic Untermyer Park and other venues in Yonkers. UPAC is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization that relies on public grants and private donations. To ensure accessibility and welcome the broadest public audience, all UPAC events are free and open to everyone.
In keeping with UPAC’s “WorldFest 2014” theme, this summer’s series includes performances representing nations and regions from around the world including Italy, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and Korea…to name a few. See the full schedule online at www.untermyer.org.
In addition to its popular free summer performance series at Untermyer Park, a new program entitled “UPAC on the Road” was recently launched, with support from Arts Westchester to reach new communities and partner with a variety of neighborhoods, businesses and community organizations.
Now celebrating its 39th year, UPAC continues to grow and seek new ways to serve the residents of Yonkers and the surrounding region. The motto of the Untermyer Performing Arts Council can be summed up with three “E’s”…enlighten, educate and entertain.
