Gravity takes hold at fund raiser

The group caters its act to its audience, Joyner said. That means that if the crowd is older, Gravity plays tunes from yesteryear, while it sticks to more modern songs for the younger crowd.

"We do the full gamut," Joyner said.

And when the crowd is mixed, as it will be at Brookside? Well, expect a little bit of everything.

"We'll have a wide mix of stuff going on," said Joyner, who said people who attend can plan to dance and sing along to songs they'll know from the opening notes.

Houle expects a nice crowd at the show, noting that "people in this community are very supportive of Brookside." In addition to the museum's three major fundraisers, it sells memberships, runs a gift shop and gets money from grants and donations, among other sources. The money it raises helps to fund a variety of educational and school programs, such as Sheep to Shawl, which offers demonstrations and hands-on activities relating to the processing of wool; A Brookside Harvest, a living history celebration of 19th century American traditions in rural Saratoga County; and a variety of adult craft classes.

Tickets for the benefit concert are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the show. Children younger than 12 are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased by calling 885-4000 or e-mailing jhoule@brooksidemuseum.org. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The museum is at 6 Charlton St. in Ballston Spa. For information, visit www.brooksidemuseum.org. For information about Gravity, visit www.gravityny.com.""
