Adding to the fun of the recent second annual MoHu Festival, the Sunny Side of the Street Band hopped aboard the trolley to entertain festival-goers as they were shuttled around Albany from venue to venue on Wednesday, October 10. Here they fire up “Gypsy Fire”…

You can catch the Sunny Side of the Street Band in less bumpy, non-mobile upcoming performances at Druthers in Saratoga Springs at 7pm tonight (Tuesday, October 23); the Perfect Blend Cafe in Delmar at 10am on Sunday (October 28); and at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany at 8pm on Wednesday, October 31 opening for Floodwood.

The last day before Lent brought together tasty food, tasty beer and tasty music as the Sunny Side of the Street Band took over the stage at Albany’s Bayou Cafe for a downtown Mardi Gras party.

When I first entered the bar, the band was playing as a four-piece. This quickly changed as the saxophone player left for the night. The line-up kept changing throughout the evening. The second set was aided by the accompaniment of Olivia Quillio, who stayed on for most of the rest of the night, either singing or playing percussion. With three accomplished singers on stage – Thomas LaFond, Eric Margan and Olivia Quillio – they were able to deliver some really good harmonies.
