Slick Fitty to get people dancing at Saratoga's Rockabilly Riot

"Everyone understands a good beat," said guitar player "Million Dollar" Bill Harrison.

Harrison is the group's newest member, having come on board only about a year and a half ago. A veteran of Albany's music scene, he remembers seeing Slick Fitty perform and digging its music.

"They were right up my alley," he said. "They're a good rock 'n' roll band."

It'd be just as easy to call Slick Fitty a good swing band or country band or bluegrass band.

"You name it, we've got a full set for it," said Domingo, who predicted the group could do 45 minutes of just about any genre.

No matter what kind of music Slick Fitty is playing, band members -- the group also includes drummer Mickey King and bassist Brian "Bri Bri Two Hammers" Springfield -- promise a high-energy show, just like Domingo envisioned more than a decade ago.

"People can expect a lot of fun," Birk said. "We're very dance-able."

Rockabilly Riot is being put on in conjunction with the Saratoga SAVOY monthly Diamond Dance, a large swing dance gathering. The evening kicks off at 7:30 and includes dance demonstrations, art exhibits, free food and Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream. The cost is $15. Saratoga Music Hall is 474 Broadway in Saratoga Springs. ""
