Time: 7:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m.

Rose & The Bros out of Ithaca, NY began as a collective dream. Rosie Newton is an internationally touring fiddle player and singer with her Old-Time duo w/ banjo player Richie Stearns, Richie and Rosie, but plays a mean accordion in her spare time. Rosie, fiddler Steve Selin and guitar player Paul Martin all wanted to have a band together to play rockin’ music people just couldn’t help but dance to!

Starting in 2015, Rosie, Steve Selin, and Paul Martin formed a trio and began collecting songs and organizing their dream dance band that people just couldn't help but rock to! When they joined forces with the rhythm section Angelo Peters (leader of Big Mean Sound Machine), Greg Evans, and Sally Freund, the band was complete.

Together they specialize in Cajun and Zydeco music from South West Louisiana. They also include sweet vocal harmonies and a few crooning country classics in the mix. Their goal is to breathe life into the young dance music scene and have a great time doing it. 

FREE and open to the public.

Organ Fairchild

Date: August 16, 2023

Time: 7:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. 

Location: Tupper Lake Sunset Stage, Flanders Park, Tupper Lake

Jam scene mainstays Joe Bellanti, Corey Kertzie and Dave Ruch met in 1983 as members of Buffalo NY Grateful Dead cover band “Wild Knights,” a group that still plays reunion shows to this day.

But it wasn’t until early 2020 that they wrote their first original music together, this time as three-piece instrumental organ trio/funky jam band Organ Fairchild.

The debut gig was just a month before COVID shutdowns, but the horse was out of the barn and the response was immediate!

Individually, these veteran musicians have played with (not in support of) Bob Weir, Rob Wasserman, Robbie Krieger (The Doors), Nels Cline, Tony Rice, moe., Oteil Burbridge, Steve Kimock, Keller Williams, Strangefolk, Gibb Droll, Big Leg Emma, Juggling Suns and more.

But since 2020, they’ve been joined together in the pursuit of groovy tunes and juicy jams in a high-powered organ trio format.

Seriously, get ready to get down with Organ Fairchild!

FREE and open to the public.
