On July 14, Randy Miritello will return with his band, The Horseshoe Lounge Playboys, to the Depot for an evening of “acoustic backwoods Americana rocking roots music”.
This four piece band performs mostly original and traditional material some call Backwoods Americana and some call Hillbilly dance music. With Randy on guitar, Will Lund on mandolin, Tom Wilmore on bass, Darin Trass on fiddle and all on vocals, the Horseshoe Lounge Playboys is a high-energy band and the organizers look forward to their return each year.
On July 21, the band Jazz Happens will be performing at the depot for the first time. This seven piece Dixieland band with a repertoire of Dixie, blues and quick stepping jazz will keep you tapping your toes all evening long. They are excited to welcome the Jazz Happens Band to the Depot Friday Night Series.
On July 28, Donna and the Country Mystics return to play at the Depot for the second year. This talented and seasoned band will be bringing old country classics as well as new country music with a little twist of variety music and fun. Donna and the Mystics have played throughout New York State, and in 2010 Donna was inducted into the New York State Country Music Hall of Fame. The Depot is excited to welcome back Donna and the Country Mystics.
