LIMA – Amanda Lee Peers, Chili native, Honeyoe Falls resident and singer in Gwen Stefani’s team during Season 7 (Fall 2014) of NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ will return to her native Genesee Valley for a performance at the Patio Party at Genesee Community College in Lima.
The free party, running 6 to 7:30 p.m. at GCC’s Lima Campus Center on Tuesday, June 23, follows a program for homeschooling families which begins at 4 p.m. Campus administration say they are pumped for this chance to see homegrown talent firsthand.
“This should be a fantastic show,” said GCC Lima Campus Associate Deborah Erion, who was acquainted with Peers through mutual friends and booked her to appear at Party on the Patio. “Amanda is an up-and-coming artist who is making her mark everywhere she goes. I don’t think people will want to miss this chance to see her perform.”
All ages are welcome to enjoy picnic fare refreshments, all provided at no cost. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit out on the Campus Center lawn with their family and friends or they can dance and sway to the music. The event will occur rain or shine.
Peers, currently lives in Honeoye Falls and describes herself as a rock/pop/soul artist. This spring she released a new album, titled “Summertime State of Mind.” She’s been compared to the late Amy Winehouse and cites a wide range of musical influences including Bob Marley and Led Zeppelin.
At the homeschool information session, GCC Admissions Director Tanya Lane Martin will share facts about the College’s ACE (Accelerated College Enrollment) program and how it can benefit families who homeschool. ACE program specialist Dan Snyder works with many homeschool students and will also be on hand to explain options available to students and answer questions.
