The four-member ensemble is made up of talented musicians with decades of experience.
7:00pm - The Spirit of Johnny Cash - Harold Ford, Our June & The Cash Band - Harold Ford’s voice and physical resemblance to Johnny Cash are unmistakable, making him a natural as a Johnny Cash tribute artist. Harold Ford grew up in the foothills country between the Berkshire and Green Mountains bordering New York State. Raised on the old American pioneer songs, at the age of four, Harold began singing duets and harmonies with sister Dorothy. His father accompanied them on the banjo and Mother followed along with the piano. As a true American figure and artist himself, Harold Ford’s many experiences make him a storyteller in his own right and lend a deep identification to Johnny Cash’s music.
7:00pm - Alex Torres and His Latin Orchestra - Formed October 1980 in Amsterdam, NY, this 12 piece orchestra is led by the Bronx-born bassist Alex Torres. They have been presented by hundreds of festivals, performing arts centers and events annually to perform their original blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythms such as Salsa, Merengue, Cha-cha, Bomba, Plena and Latin Jazz. The Orchestra has been the recipient of numerous awards including the New England Cultural Arts Preservation Award, the New York State Music Achievement Award, the Schenectady League of Arts Award, The Governor´s Excellence in Arts Award, The NAACP Albany Chapter Award and 3 awards from NY Capital District Original Music Awards in 2016.
7:00pm - The Dylan Perrillo Orchestra - The Dylan Perrillo Orchestra from Albany, NY performs popular American music from 1890-1950 taking a particular liking to the songbook of the 1920’s. Complete with a six-piece horn section, violin, vocalist and rhythm section, DPO boasts an impressive line up of accomplished musicians of their own accord. Beginning in 2013, the big band has steadily been working towards building an audience for their unique interpretation of classic and not-so-classic, jazz-influenced compositions.
7:00pm - The Stony Creek Band - For over 40 years, the Stony Creek Band has been one of the most enduringly popular musical groups in the northeastern United States. The Stony Creek Band has thrilled generations of fans with its high energy blend of rock, folk, country and bluegrass; a sound that has consistently defied description but is “a product of the landscape as authentically upstate as any Hudson River School painting or sculpture by David Smith” and performed in a manner described by one reviewer as “a ferocious ensemble attack; like a runaway train!”. Over the last 40 years, the Stony Creek Band has evolved from an acoustic trio with roots in traditional folk and country music to a purveyor of American idioms, and back again. The band’s music is the sound of mature, seasoned artists who have outlasted the years and their own baser instincts to mentor and encourage younger artists, enrich their communities and preserve and transmit a living memory.
7:00pm - Mark Gamsjager & The Lustre Kings - The Lustre Kings boast a devoted international fanbase and continue to perform over 150 dates a year, including regular stops at nightspots, festivals and casinos like Tip Top Deluxe, Skinny Dennis and The Continental Club; Viva Las Vegas, Heritage Folk Festival and the Rockin 50s Fest; and the Potawamoti Hotel. Gamsjager, a Gretsch guitars endorsee who has taught for the National Guitar Workshop, has been a guest at prestigious venues ranging from Kennedy Center (Washington DC) to the Montreal Jazz Fest. Beginning with 1995’s Mark Gamsjager Rocks & The Lustre Kings Roll, the band staked a claim to a modern take on the reverb-driven sounds of early rock, leaning also on touchstones of country, blues and R&B.
