What is “Belle Bash”?

Growing up in Mayville NY a young Todd Wagner brought his love of music and Chautauqua Lake to the Chautauqua Belle. The Belle Bash started as a “kegger” with family and friends and has literally evolved from those days of 30 years ago.

Each year Lucky Dog Management and the Chautauqua Belle come together to bring the best, most acclaimed, nationally touring artists and bands to this very up close and personal venue.

The Chautauqua Belle offers a very personal and fun experience for both the band and the audience. Artists in the past have loved the Chautauqua Belle as an intimate venue, praising the  personal and fun atmosphere.  Whereas, after last year’s Butch Trucks appearance, he called the Belle “the most unique venue he has ever played,” which is remarkable, considering the thousands of venues he has performed in around the world as a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band.

The “Belle Bash” series

The “Belle Bash” series on the Chautauqua Belle dates back to 2013 and has included such names as New Riders of the Purple Sage, Butch Trucks and the Freight Train Band, Eric Lindell, Eilen Jewel, Chris Smither, Los Straitjackets, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, Samantha Fish, Dana Fuchs, Nikki Hill, John Nemeth and Jarekus Singleton to name a few.

*Lucky Dog Management (LDM) is a live music & event management company based in Johnstown, PA. Established in the spring of 2015, we are dedicated to planning, coordinating, producing, facilitating, and providing logistical support in all aspects of each live music event.

Todd’s background includes Chairing the Flood City Music Festival from 2009-2016. Much of the success of this festival can be contributed to Todd’s talent buying, logistical vision and attention to detail, overlapping for one exceptional event each August.

During his tenure, the festival saw significant growth with 70% of the festival goers coming from outside of a 60-mile radius of Johnstown. The festival boasted such internationally acclaimed acts as The Derek Trucks Band, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Galactic, Gregg Allman, JJ Grey & Mofro, Bettye LaVette, Dr. John, Del McCoury Band, The Smithereens, Trombone Shorty, Robert Randolph, Box Scaggs, G. Love, Marc Broussard, Anders Osbourne and many, many more.

Todd’s festival success carried over in 2016, when LDM was choosen to head up the newly renamed Happy Valley Music Festival in State College, PA.  Now in the second year, LDM has brought another quality lineup to include headliners Spin Doctors and Charles Bradley.

Consequently, they have made the brilliant decision to take the show on the road and enjoy booking the “Belle Bash” Summer Concert Series on the famed Chautauqua Belle Steamboat. Ultimately, Lucky Dog Management aims to perfectly blend environment and experience to devise an exemplary event for our clients, artists, and audience.
