A live, in-person concert played in sync with classic cartoons on the big screen!

This drive-in performance will take place at the Horse Show Grounds in Lake Placid. Gates open at 6:00pm.

The Queen's Cartoonists are a one-of-a-kind band that plays music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation. Their performances are synchronized to video projections of the original films, and the band leads the audience through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy.

This is a concert for everybody - regardless of age or musical taste! Tying this diverse setlist together are comedic anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers. The band is on a musical mission of equal parts performance, preservation, and education. Expect the unexpected from numbers that include the Golden Age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern animation, and elements of a musical circus!
