LOCK HAVEN - The last Lock Haven Summer Concert Series Friday show will be held at 6 p.m. Friday in Triangle Park. It will feature John Steves' Doubleshot.
John Stevens' Doubleshot formed together in January 1995 and the young and energetic band released their first cassette, "Doubleshot Preview" in March of that same year. Then, in 1996, the band released their first full recording "Come On Let's Dance" on cassette and compact disc. This recording opened many doors for the band.
In September 1996, Doubleshot had disbanded for a year while members of the band went back to school and found full-time jobs. After not playing for almost a year, the group got back together in September 1997, releasing their second recording, "Everyone's Having Fun." This recording got the ball rolling once again for the band. "Everyone's Having Fun" was named No. 1 tune of the year on the Jolly St. Nick's Polka Revolution show, which is heard on WPHB 1260 AM in Houtzdale.
The last Friday concert of the summer in Triangle Park will feature John Stevens’ Doubleshot band. The concert, which is part of the Lock Haven Summer Concert Series, begins at 6 p.m.
In 2003, the band made the Top 20 list of Best New Songs from 247polkaheaven.com at No. 17 with "Gonna Have a Party." Then in 2005 they made the list again at No. 9 for the song "Back to the Sea." Also in 2005 the band made the Top 10 from WPNA RADIO (Oak Park, Ill.) AT No. 7 for the song "Back to the Sea." The 2010 "Overlooked" release was No. 4 out of 20 on the charts at 247polkaheav en.com.
The band has been on numerous television shows including: Pennsylvania Polka (WVIA-TV), The Jolly Joe Timmer Show (RCN CABLE), It's Polka Time (Wisc.) The Bethlehem Musikfest (Service Electric Cable) and WSKG-TV "Let's Polka" (N.Y.).
Their main goal is to promote polka music to the younger generation and get them involved with this great extreme push music, polka music.
