Friday night, December 17th, Frog Alley in Schenectady, NY blew up with sounds of Funk, horns and laughter.
Hitting the venue with a new line up, yet, you would never know they haven’t been playing together for years.
A party band with so many genres under their belt. Definitely high energy, topped off with an ‘in the crowd’, saxophone duel, between Stephen “Rocco” Christman and Justin Godlewski, wowed the fans!
Sabrina Gogan was a powerhouse of energy as she joined with Mike McNair, who sounded as he could have just stepped off the Broadway stage!
Scott Halliday, was tremendous on bringing the swing to the tunes with his vibrant and sonorous sounds of the trumpet.
Alex Hitrick, was manning the keyboards, and performing soulful vocals as well.
Chris Maloy, was the lead guitarist, and Jarod Grieco really made the FUNK happen on bass.
Rounding out the troupe, was Nick Palazeke on drums, hidden in the back, yet the heartbeat of the band.
