Then cross the bridge into Albany at 7pm on Saturday (February 27) for a night at the College of St. Rose’s Massry Center for the Arts with the Arch Stanton Quartet, the 11-piece, Virginia-based the No BS! Brass Band and Ellis & Delfeayo Marsalis, the father-and-son of New Orleans’ first family of jazz playing selections from their collaborative album, The Last Southern Gentlemen.

Tickets are currently available for for Friday night ($28, $36 & $42) and Saturday night ($40; $30 for students). Also, a two-day pass for both concerts is on sale for just $60; $40 for students.
