Saturday, September 29    HOT CLUB OF SARATOGA – Chamber Rotunda Gallery, 2 N. Main Street, Gloversville
Hot Club of Saratoga, upstate New York Saratoga/Capital Region’s premier gypsy swing ensemble, plays a repertoire that reflects the spirit and style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in The Quintet of the Hot Club of France most prominent in the 1930’s and kept alive through a long line of gypsy jazz artists since that time. Most of the tunes they play were either written by, or recorded by, Django at some time in his all too brief musical life. 
Saturday, November 29     TESS MCCARTHY, Soprano – with Guest Musicians – Chamber Rotunda Gallery, 2 N. Main Street, Gloversville
Soprano Tess McCarthy  sings with Albany Pro Musica and serves as soloist and section leader at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Albany. Tess teaches choral and general music at The Albany Academies. A native of Troy, NY, Ms. McCarthy received her Bachelor’s degree in music from The College of Saint Rose in 2010, graduating cum laude.

Saturday, May 4        RYAN LEDDICK TRIO – Chamber Rotunda Art Gallery, 2 N. Main Street, Gloversville
Rooted in soulful vocal nuances, and rhythmic acoustic rock; The Ryan Leddick Trio showcases numerous foot tapping fusions that pique ears and turn heads with their new age power trio set up.   
     Formed in the fall of 2015 as a side project of Ryan Leddick, the acoustic power trio has grown into a well established group in Upstate New York.  Having played many stages, most notable LarkFest, and Move Music Festival -  the group is growing followers left and right all over New York State.  Not your average power trio set up, pulling from a Dave Matthews style of guitar playing, Ryan Leddick heads the group with his vocal prowess which is echoed with the swooping sound of the Trombone played by Dave Paul.  Together both are bound by the momentum and driving nature of the hand drumming of Ryan Szablewski.   
      As a group, they pull from the eclectic to the rock sides of history to create a sound unlike any.   Whether recording or performing at favorite venues across the capital district and beyond, their acoustic live sound is always in the forefront and evident.  Pulling from the likes of Dave Matthews, The Police, Bernhoft, Trevor Hall, John Mayer, Bob Marley, Damien Rice, Blink 182, and Martin Sexton, the trio’s sound is new and refreshing.  They are an act you do not want to miss...
