Led by vocalist-guitarist Travis Gray, Saratoga’s Wild Adriatic is one of Nippertown’s fastest rising bands, mixing rock and roll, soul and blues into one big, timeless, infectious sound.
The band – which also features guitarist Shane Gilman, bassist Rich Derbyshire and drummer Mateo Vosganian – has played everywhere from sweaty, hole-in-the-wall bars to Albany’s Palace Theatre to glitzy New York City showcase clubs, wowing audiences and growing their fan base at every stop with their high-energy live performances.
On Saturday (March 9), Wild Adriatic steps into the spotlight for a hometown show at Putnam Den, with Black Mountain Symphony and the Grand Design sharing the stage. Doors open at 9pm; music starts at 9:30pm. Tickets are $7; $12 for ages 18-20.
At the show, the first two people to come to the band’s merchandise table and say the secret password will get FREE Wild Adriatic merch. (Psssst… the secret password is “snicklefritz.” Tell ‘em Nippertown sent ya.)
