    Albany gets a “singer” from The Voice and SPAC has dancing with the stars. Throw in some “tribute” bands and it doesn’t say much for the music scene.

    Dan, OK, I hear ya. Craig Wayne Boyd and “Dancing With the Stars” might not be your cup o’ tea (or mine, for that matter). And I agree that the endless parade of “tribute” bands is disheartening at best. But to paint the entire Nippertown summer concert season with such a broad brush based on a few concert announcements seems rather myopic. There’s a LOT of great shows headed our way. Who would you like to see playing in town?

    The best outdoor concert events this summer will be in Croton and Green River, not anywhere near Albany.

    Dan, what about the opener for Live @ 5?
    The Schenectady Music Haven concert series has yet to be announced!!

  5. Richard Brody says:

    The lineups for both Solid Sound and Grey Fox look pretty good to me.
