This year, the River Street Festival in Troy put more of an emphasis on art, but make no mistake, there was still plenty of music going on through the Saturday afternoon fest.

Three stages of music, in fact…

And those stages proudly hosted a wide variety of bands and musicians, including the returning children’s music duo Cavanaugh & Kavanaugh and the homegrown talents of Funk Evolution, Kim Buckley, young Emma Torncello and many others.

Capping it all off were the national headliners, the Grass Roots, known for their ’60s Top 20 pop-rock hits “Midnight Confession,” “Let’s Live for Today,” “I’d Wait a Million Years,” “Where Were You When I Needed You,” “Two Divided by Love” and more. And while it was good to hear those classic golden oldies again, there were actually no original members in the band. And in fact, the musician with the longest tenure in the “Grass Roots” didn’t join the band until 1984…
