The Rochester-based tribute band One Sweet World played two generous sets of Dave Matthews Band songs last Saturday evening at Riverlink Park in Amsterdam.
Led by Dave Swart on guitar and vocals, the band also featured violinist Joe Davoli and drummer Chris Cornish. Sitting in this evening was bassist Arya Chowdhury and saxophonist Jason Saetta. Amsterdam native Swart had previously had played frequently around Amsterdam and served as the host of the popular Wednesday night open mic night at the Coffee Beanery on Route 30.
One Sweet World drew the biggest crowd of the year to Riverlink Park, which will be wrapping up its summer season with a performance of “Broadway Through the Ages” by the NYC-based Kidz Theater at 7pm on Saturday (August 27).
