The Egg in Albany will be playing host to a pair of newly announced Local 518 concerts.
The Mendelssohn Club of Albany takes over the Hart Theatre stage at The Egg at 7:30pm on Friday, December 13 for their annual holiday concert, “Sing and Be Merry.” This year, they’ll be joined by special guests the Musicians of Ma’alwyck. Tickets are currently on sale for $18.
And while there’s been no official word yet from the folks at The Egg, Michael Benedict & Bopitude have announced that they’ll be hosting a Drum Battle Concert at The Egg on Saturday, February 1, similiar to the one they hosted at Van Dyck back in October. Five different powerhouse percussionists – Michael Benedict, Pete Sweeney, Bob Haleck, Mark Foster and Brian Melick – square off in pairs to fuel the big beat behind Bopitude, wrapping up the night with a drum-a-palooza five-way battle. Ticket prices and on-sale date TBA.
