Family Time

Life requires balance. In maintaining that balance, PGS will be taking some time off in August for vacations and family time. We look forward to seeing you again in September. We have a couple great opportunities to give back to the community coming up. On September 10th, we have been asked to perform as part of the Clearwater’s Family Day at Esopus Meadows in Ulster Park and on September 18th we will be back performing at the Bike for Cancer Care at Dietz Stadium. We hope to see you at one (or both) of those events. Keep an eye on our calendar page for additional shows as well.
