ALBANY — The Hollow Bar + Kitchen is slated to showcase two power-hitting bands out of the Empire State on Friday, April 13, at 8 p.m.
Headlining act Floodwood is a progressive string band comprised of Vinnie Amico (moe.), Tony Markellis (Trey Anastasio Band), Jason Barady, Nick Piccininni and Chris Eves. The five-piece band out of Central New York provides a blend of bluegrass and drums, that will give audiences anything from jazz to the Grateful Dead, the aforementioned bluegrass and everything else in between.
Joining Floodwood on the night’s playbill is Albany’s Black Mountain Symphony.
The hometown six-piece band just recently won the admiration of NYS Music.com readers, winning the online magazine’s annual March Madness contest which pits 64 Empire State bands against one another in a friendly competition decided upon by readers’ votes.
Black Mountain Symphony is defined by a unique sound that can range from baroque classical violin and haunting folk-tinged ballads, to funk-rick drums and hard-hitting dance numbers.
The show is provided by Guthrie Bell Productions. For tickets and information, visit GuthrieBellProductions.com.
The Hollow Bar + Kitchen is located at 79 No. Pearl Street in Albany.
