Trumpeter Glen “The Kid” Marhevka blows his horn with the rest of the members of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy when the band swings into in town for a concert at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy, at 8pm on Friday (November 16) in support of their latest album, “Rattle Them Bones.” Tickets are $29 & $36.
BUT WAIT… We’re giving away a pair of FREE TICKETS to the show! Just GO HERE to enter…
