This week we’re digging deep into the vaults of “Real George’s Backroom,” Albany’s fabulous ’80s vintage cable television music show, for another blast from the past – the Penny Knight Band.
Led by singer-drummer Penny Knight, here the band kicks out a pair of tunes – “He’s a Faker” and “Jump Start My Heart” – that Real George captured live in 1984 at Easter Seals’ Parties in the Park. The free concerts were held in Albany’s West Capitol Park every Wednesday throughout the summer months:
But WAIT, here’s the best news…
After a hiatus of just 25 years, the Penny Knight Band is roaring back into action with a handful of reunion shows in Nippertown next week.
Welcome back, PKB!
And the Penny Knight Band will wrap up their reunion week with a performance at the benefit concert for Nippertown keyboardist-producer Tony Perrino that’s being held at Jay’s Bar & Grill in Ballston Spa from 3-8pm on Sunday, November 14. Other bands slated to performance at the very special show include Blue Hand Luke, Jocamo, Killer B, Loose Cannons, Mantraz, E.B. Jebb, Gary Brooks, Johnny Rabb, the Refrigerators and more. Suggested donation at the door is $10.
