Frank Jaklitsch’s death last August was a serious blow to Greater Nippertown’s music community.
But earlier this month – just two days before what would have been Frank Jaklitsch’s 62nd birthday, Good Things raised their voices at Spindles in Cohoes to perform songs from Jaklitsch’s deep catalog.
The trio features bassist Kathi Quinlan, guitarist-vocalist Bobby Long and mandolinist Michael Eck, each longtime Jaklitsch musical compatriots.
A tribute concert, “Celebrating the Legacy of Frank Jaklitsch,” will be held at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs at 8pm on Saturday (January 28) with Good Things and a host of other Greater Nippertown musicians who were part of Frank Jaklitsch & Friends over the years. The concert is a benefit for Jaklitsch’s favorite charity, Shaker Veterinary Hospital’s Save-a-Pet Fund. Tickets are $18 in advance; $20 at the door.
RIP: Frank Jaklitsch, 1955-2016
