John Tichy made his musical mark on the national scene as one of the guitarists who helped define the signature sound of the legendary roots-rocker Commander Cody & the Lost Planet Airmen back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Having paid his road dues with the Commander, guitarist-vocalist Tichy finally planted roots in Nippertown a couple of decades back and threw his hat into the ring with a variety of local bands, stretching from the Fabulous Armadillos to Johnny & the Panty Raiders. These days you’ll find him co-leading the revved-up rockabilly band, the Tichy Boys, with his talented 20-something son Graham Tichy, whose guitar-wielding and singing proves the old adage that the apple never falls far from the tree.

Intrepid Nippertown contributor Ed Conway threw himself into the middle of the riot on Saturday night to get these exclusive photos – the River Street Riot, that is.

Saturday night’s fundraising bash for the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy was a decidedly retro affair with plenty of fun, lots of dancing and some hot-wired music from the Tichy Boys, led by John and Graham Tichy, the self-proclaimed “finest father and son rockabilly band in all of Rensselaer County.”

Needless to say, a good time was had by all…

The Tichy Boys

It’s a benefit for the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy, but this definitely ain’t one of those la-di-da evening gowns-and-champagne kind of social events. No, this is strictly rockin’ – in a revved-up, retro ’50s kind of way.

It’s all happening at 7pm on Saturday at the Arts Center of the Capital Region, and the roots-rollickin’ sounds of the Tichy Boys provide the soundtrack. Jive and swing dance lessons. A dance contest. Bettie Page and James Dean look-alike contests. A silent auction. A photo-booth.

And, of yeah, there’ll be plenty of great food and libations from the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Wine-n-Diner available to purchase, too.

Tix are just $15 in advance; $20 at the door.
