Upcoming events (5+)
This is an awesome annual music festival that I've been attending for at least 20 years. It's actually called The Hudson River Blues BBQ..I added the Funk.. cause they've always had a great Funk or Nola Brass band headline this day of such kick ass music.. and this year they're having one of the absolute best Funk/Groove bands you could ever hope to see! The fest actually starts at 2pm so if you wanna go earlier and meet me around 4ish we can do that. I'm going at 4 cause I wanna see the amazing slide guitar player AJ Ghent at that time..plus I think 5 hours of music is enough for me this Saturday and wanna be fresh for the headlining band. The 2 bands coming on earlier are a smokin soul/blues band and a heavy duty gospel act. After AJ at 4pm.. hugely popular Singer,Gtr player Ruthie Foster takes the stage around 5:45 with her band. She's the Real Deal when it comes to a mix of blues,soul,rock,R&B, and more! Then at 7:15 Karl Densons Tiny Universe hits the stage and without a doubt..will have the pier dancing up a storm with their high energy Funk. I guarantee you that if you're not familiar with them.. you'll be blown away by their music and show! Karl tours as the Rolling Stones' regular Saxaphone player...but during the long layoffs between their tours.. he's been tearing it up all over the country and really throughout the world with his band KDTU! He's also the real deal ultra talented Sax player/singer who's energy is infectious..to say the least. He tours festivals all over the world with KDTU as well as with his first major band that he still tours with..The Greyboy Allstars. PS.. while all the music is free..the BBQ isn't. There will be some great BBQ to be had though..Blue Smoke BBQ, Butcher Bar, Dinosaur BBQ, and Mighty Quinn's will be serving up loads of yummy food that'll be easy to burn off the calories if you wanna dance along with yours truly 😉🕺💃🎸🎵🎶🍻
