Friday Schedule

DirtCheapUpdated3:00pm - Dirt Cheap - (Classic Rock) Dirt Cheap consistently serves up a true tasting of classic rock, blues, acoustic and new music derived from a variety of influences. They play every song with the expressive feel, punchy tone and “dead on” vocal harmony that you’ve come to expect from a professional rock band of this caliber, and they all sing. In fact, one of the qualities that separates Dirt Cheap from many other area bands is rich harmony on top of driving music with singers who can deliver the different styles necessary for a top-rate cover band. Their repertoire is as diverse as the band members are, playing everything from Bad Company, Eric Clapton and Foreigner to Journey, Styx, Tom Petty, and Led Zeppelin, to name a few.

Saturday

TheSwitchUpdated1:00 pm - The Switch Band - (Blues and Funk)
An explosion of blues and funk came out of Lake George, New York in 2011. "The Switch", a mighty band brewing with anger and soul, emerged from the rubble. Our first album, "Slim Pickins", produced and recorded in Nashville by legend Peter Young, hit the scene in May of 2017. Compounding a high-energy, powerhouse element with its own unique soulfulness, "Slim Pickins" brings to the table a flavor of blues that will move your shoes! Influenced by the blues masters of the 1960s, we pick up where Cream and Led Zeppelin left off. Just recorded and expected to hit early summer 2019, our new live album from The Strand Theater showcases our roots, Slim Pickins and new original music. The band consists of members Evan Malone on vocals, Tyler Calzada on drums, James Woods on bass and Johnny Sairs on guitar. (Click photo for Youtube link)
