Joe’s Boys will be performing a variety of David Cassidy’s solo work, music from the Partridge Family and “good time rock n’ pop” songs from the 60’s, 70’s 80’s and beyond.

David Cassidy was more than an extremely talented vocalist, composer, author, producer, director, actor and amazing Broadway/theatre entertainer; he was a philanthropist who gave generously and often times anonymously to various charities. He was an avid horseman who owned, bred and raced Thoroughbreds. He owned and loved various animals. For this reason, The David Cassidy Memorial Legacy Group is committed to furthering his legacy, with charity events such as this one.

The “good time rock ‘n pop” sounds of Joe’s Boys have been capturing audiences from Albany to the Adirondacks for well over 20 years! The ‘Boys, during the past year or so, have performed numerous times at great Capital District venues such as Schenectady’s “Rivers Casino,” Saratoga’s “Parting Glass,” Watervliet’s “Rusty Anchor Barge,” “NaNola” in Malta, Ravena’s “Yanni’s Too,” “Martel’s Grill” on the beautiful grounds of the Town of Colonie Golf Course – and many other terrific venues. And, we have even performed at Proctors Theater – opening up for Herman’s Hermits, B.J. Thomas and the Grass Roots!

Through the years, Joe’s Boys has been selected to perform at a number of special Capital District community events, including several “Hats Off to Saratoga” celebrations, community park events in nearby Niskayuna, Cohoes, Rensselaer, and Green Island, and, on several occasions, even the huge “Hudson-Mohawk Marathon and Mini Marathon” at the Amphitheatre of Albany’s Corning Preserve.

Joe’s Boys has even been the headline musical act – twice – at the incredible “Carrot Festival!”

The band’s music and crowd-pleasing personality are just made for YOU!
