As the saying goes, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” With lightning taking out the Final Stretch Music Fest on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, there was still a good free show in town. The Putnam Den hosted a fine show that started at 8pm and went fairly straight through with no breaks till 11pm.
Melissa Lussier was up first. Coming all the way from Buffalo for the show, the band played without their drummer, but they were able to showcase Lussier’s impressive vocal skills. And Ron Lelito kept the music moving right along, switching from bass to guitar throughout the night.
