Here’s the recipe: Take Nippertown’s premier power trio Super 400. Add powerhouse vocalist Mike Iwanos. Mix in keyboardist Adrian Cohen. Filter through the legacy and repertoire of the Allman Brothers Band. Shake well… And what do you get? The Midnight Riders, who will be riding into Pauly’s Hotel in Albany at 10pm on Friday.
MaryLeigh & the Fauves will be celebrating the release of their debut CD, “The Docks,” with a performance and party at the Saratoga Arts Center in Saratoga Springs at 8pm on Saturday, November 19. Olivia Quillio & Meagan Duffy will kick off the festivities. Admission is $8.
Bassist-vocalist Don Dworkin – of Reggie’s Red Hot Feetwarmers, the Tichy Boys and the many incarnations of Doc Scanlon – is back over in Europe – his second time this year – for a month-long tour of France, Spain and Slovenia with Doc Scanlon’s Pan-Atlantic Swingsters. Dworkin and his across-the-pond musical compatriots – guitarist-vocalist “Bad Boy” Billy Collins, Spanish clarinetist Juli Aymi and French washboardist-vocalist Stephane Seva – launch their tour this weekend in France with performances at the Grenoble Swing Dance Festival. The band plans to record their sophomore album together during the tour.
