Sonny and Perley — the ever-popular musical performers — are doing a very special event here at the library on Monday, Jan. 30, at 5 p.m. They’re recording an album of live material, with you as their audience. You will be part of a live recording session.
This is a ticketed event, limited to 100 participants. Only four tickets per person. You can pick up tickets at the library’s information desk (call 456-2400, ext. 2 to reserve), but do so soon. Tickets are going fast.
Audiences and reviewers love this duo. The Poughkeepsie Journal noted, “Honest, straight-up music with no pretense. Sonny and Perley work their gifts and make their magic in front of and behind the microphone.” And Swingtime Magazine calls “Perley a supersongstress. She has a beautiful, smoky-low to middle-upper register voice, wonderful intonation, and stage presence. The sky is her limit.”
Don’t miss this delightful concert-recording event. Get your tickets today.
