ALBANY — Grab your dancing shoes and head to The Upper Room on Saturday, Jan. 14, for a show featuring one of the Northeast’s most sought after bands: The Refrigerators. Doors open at 8 p.m for the 9:30 p.m. concert.
Formed in 1992, The Refrigerators consist of nine core musicians who infuse funk, rock and R&B with a pumping rhythm section, powerhouse horn section and a kinetic stage presence. The band has gained a large following in the Capital District and beyond thanks to its unique combination of classic tunes and intense performances, which are reminiscent of some of the greatest horn-fueled bands of all time. The Refrigerators are consistently voted one of the area’s “Best Bands,” and a top choice among area event promoters.
General admission tickets are $5 each (there is an additional $1.27 fee if purchased online).

The Upper Room is located at 59 North Pearl St.
